A person downhill-skiiing. Displayed with poles and skis, generally wearing a mask.
Platforms vary in display of scarf, helmet, and color of clothing. No gendered options are provided for this emoji. Skin tones support is not recommended for this emoji, but this is supported by some platforms.
Skier was approved as part of Unicode 5.2 in 2009 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
The Skier emoji supports skin tone modifiers. A yellow (or other non-human) skin tone should be shown by default, unless an emoji modifier is applied.
Platforms without support for emoji modifiers display a missing symbol character (box with a cross, alien, or question mark in it) next to any modified emoji.
