"I had to do that when I was young!" Mum said. "There was no internet and you couldn't use phones to send messages or find out information."

Winter sports 

Winter sports are sports that are played on snow and ice. In the past, people on skis to move the snow, but now it is an exciting winter sport, which lots of people do year in the mountains.

Lots of people also like to skate, some on skates and some race on skates. Children like on ice on lakes in the winter.

Sledges are also good to use in the snow. You can buy sledges are made of plastic or wood in the shops. Then all you is a hill and some snow!

All winter sports are not only fun also important. Making snowmen is not a sport , perhaps one day it will be!
