Ski events include Alpine skiing, freestyle skiing, snowboarding and Nordic events. Some professions that utilise skiing skills include ski schools and instructors, rangers, emergency and rescue services and specialised police and military units.

Ability to control the skis, endurance, speed, athleticism and flexibility are all skills a skier can develop. There is a wide variety of techniques including rails, slides, flips spins and grabs to be learned – with the newer moves evolving into even more thrilling stunts.

Australia has several well developed ski resorts, including Thredbo and Perisher in New South Wales, and Mount Hotham, Falls Creek and Mount Buller in Victoria. Cross country skiing is popular in such parks as Kosciuszko National Park and Alpine National Park and the Tasmanian Wilderness.

The coin’s coloured reverse portrays a skier against the backdrop of a ski slope, mountain and sunrise. The inscription SKIING, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark and the monetary denomination are also incorporated in the design. Issued as Australian legal tender, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2013 year-date.

A great gift for any budding young collector, the coin is housed in a colouful presentation card which has fantastic illustrations and information about skiing.
