We await fresh Snow & the Winter Games
Skiing is such a wonderful sport to both participate in and to watch as well. Those people who are skiing enthusiast will tell you that the sport is such a super cool experience even to write about, and to film. So with that being said, I’m embarking on a new online adventure into the depths and online trails that many of these lovers of the sport have left.
It won’t be hard neither to write about since the winter has just began to make way, and so it shall be a fun digital voyage, and everyone can feel free to venture through it all with me, as I locate as much content as possible to support this awesome tasking and new series getting started out here on hubpages, and will even extend itself onto Youtube.
Let’s hope I can earn a bit more revenue here at HP in the process to make it my way back onto the slopes at Blue Mountain PA, where I first fell in love with the sport, and also where I learned to ride a snowboard for the very first time, which I truly enjoy doing so much.

This super excitingly awesome sporting venue that attracts millions of people all year round, and at the peak of the winter season is a sure show stopper. Allowing for super talented athletes from around the globe to compete with one another, for them to gain more recognition, notoriety, popularity, sponsors, and its very similar to the Winter Olympic Games, but with a boost of super charged hard core adrenaline for that good ole love of the cold weather element, and harsh snowy terrains.
For years people have flocked to see these awesome events, and the praise worthiness of all the, fans, supporters, news media, columnist, reporters, and lucky pro-level participants who indeed do qualify each year to compete (Competition is fierce) makes it well worth the 9 month or so wait each year.
The extremely high level of competition makes it something truly worth watching for sure, and on Youtube (Link on the right of the screen to their official channel - Up above high lit in sky-blue) of all places is where much of the viewers get to see the action worldwide, as well as on Television on ESPN, which was previously the traditional way to view anything popular in the world of sports.

So where will the 2014 Winter Games be held?
Due to the not so well known fact that the Winter Olympic Games are to be held once every 4 years, I've chosen to share with folks the locations for the 2014 event if you didn't already get the memo, and also the 2018 event, which both can be located on Wikipedia (link to the event there) as well. If you're into writing online articles and seek to benefit from writing about these sorts of subjects, it would behoove you to do so now to get a head start before such a time arrives, and a year prior is as good a time as any.
The 2014 event is to be hosted by a country that hasn't ever had the privilege to do so, and is none other than mother Russia, and in a cool city there known as Sochi.
As for the 2018 awesome winter extravaganza event, it will be held at a cool vacation and tourist spot known for its attractive name, high quality of Gangnam Style life (Link to a cool unrelated success story from that location), which is adjacent to it and is known around the world as South Korea, at a place called Pyeongchang that has about 7 Buddhist temples according to Wikipedia.

Making of the Games
These games are not any ordinary sporting contests, this is a long awaited event from people of all walks of life, and for all those whom been looking to unite the world today under the thought of being much more positive.
Sharing with one another fairly, and peacefully is what the games is also meant to do, to uplift the world community, to help in building the spirit of caring, and giving to your neighbors, and its also meant to empower the rebuilding of many internal systems of our infrastructures of many great cities, and countries worldwide.
Construction of the Sochi 2014 Games venues is in progress:
Constructing much of the Olympic venues takes a great deal of cumulative efforts, resources, money, effective communications, engineering both on the social scale as well as all physical engineering planning levels.
Making this effort a huge ordeal that takes well trained experts in all fields of leadership, and its created 1,000's of jobs making the city of Sochi a true attraction, and something to work hard for making happen, and its almost here.
Re-inventing Russia's country and cities is the overall theme as well, and its invited over 250,000 volunteers to help assist in this fantastic event.
A great deal of work is still left to be completed, but things are definitely on their way there. This moment in time also stands for much more then some viewing of a sporting event, its also to set a example of good sportsmanship like conduct around the globe that many people are sure to be inspired by. This will further help global leaders to try and do much of the same thereafter in benefit for that of the people of the Russian community, and for to further benefit humanity as a whole in the true spirit of world unity, peace, and prosperity for all.
