Thought there might be about a 100 stamps throughout the world on this topic. Didn't realize it falls under winter sports / Olympics and a recurring theme...

I briefly tried to entice my teenage son to stamp collecting with a a cheap sampling of stamps depicting snowboarding, at which he is relatively adept (flips and 360s and such). He said they were, "cool," but that was as far as I got. The half-dozen I'd gathered vanished into his room never to be seen again.

For starters, you might have a look at the American Topical Association lists for skiing and snowboarding. For snowboarding they list 117 at present, but for skiing they have hundreds in various divisions/categories such as cross country, downhill, aerial/mogul, etc, etc. I suspect there is significant overlap among their skiing lists.
https://americantopical.org/Checkli...opics#SPORTS and scroll down to "sports - skiing"

Since we like pictures, here is something that came to me some months ago from France and which did not vanish into my son's room. One of the new-fangled barcode things that I do not have to deal with cause my France collection cuts off in 2000... or thereabouts.

I think someone in Laos Philatelic Service likes very much Ski. If not, I don't know how to explain the fact they issued several different sets about ski, although skiing is not at all popular in Laos:

Here are a pair (post card and letter rate) from France, issued 27 January 1962 upon the occasion of the World Skiing Championships being held in Chamonix Fr. that February. Both were designed and engraved by Pierre Gandon.

Scott 1019 and 1020, Yvert 1326 and 1327




Edited to add that I just now realize the left hand one is very nearly SOTN of the skier hurtling downhill.
