Skiers from Snowless Nations

Skiers from Snowless Nations

Our sport's appeal extends beyond countries with wintry climates. Here's a compilation of Olympic athletes from nations that barely—or never—see a snowflake.

We found this old blog post on mentalfloss.com. It's always exciting to see skiers from warm places really givin' 'er. But not all these guys are actually from warm places—maybe they have some parental connection to another country that doesn't normally host Winter Olympic athlete contingents and therefore a chance to compete at the highest level. Whatever, excuses can be made about anything. Just nice to see these guys sharing the passion.
