The main winter sports are ice hockey and figure skating, sledding events, such as luge, skeleton and bobsleigh, skiing (Alpine and Nordic) and snowboarding

Luge, like the skeleton and the bobsleigh, (see photos) originated in the health-spa town of St Moritz, Switzerland, in the mid-to-late 19th century The first organized meeting of the sport took place in 1883.
