SPORTSCARS has long been one of the biggest draws for fans at sporting events.
But, in the last two decades, the sport has faced competition from snowboarders, skateboarders and rollerbladers.
That’s according to the latest figures from the National Snow and Ice Sports Federation.
The report by the non-profit group says that snow sport revenue has shrunk by 13 percent over the past 10 years.
The sport is on the decline because of increased use of artificial snow, and snowboard competitions have been replaced by speedskating.
The NSSF report shows that snowboard and skateboarding revenue dropped by 20 percent in 2016 and by 26 percent in 2017, and ski jumping was down by 16 percent.
Sports marketing has also fallen, with sponsors dropping from $5.5 billion in 2007 to $3.7 billion in 2016, the report said.
The association has been working with the National Hockey League to try to help reinvigorate the sport.
The NHL has already launched a program to provide more sports opportunities for young people, and it has launched the National Ski Training Academy, which is aimed at getting more people skiing.
The league said it is exploring additional ways to boost the sport’s popularity.
