Winter Olympic Sports

Is it just me or are most of the winter Olympic sports just derivative/descended of the same thing event? They all involve going down the mountain in a ski, board, sled, toboggan alone or with up to four other people as fast as possible and then maybe a jump or some tricks in mid-air. Can anyone tell me the difference between the skeleton and the luge other than one is going face first/down the the other is on your back? I know that all these sports involve snow, snow is not the point but that brings up my second point… I can’t wait until next winter Olympics when they introduce snow shoveling, ice fishing, or synchronize snowshoeing as new events. I’m holding out for 2018 when they add reindeer games.
