Water skiing is a surface water sport and recreational activity. It is usually said to have been invented in Lake City, Minnesota in 1922 by Ralph Samuelson, though some claim that it was pioneered at least as early as 1920 in France.

Who invented alpine skiing?

I think skiing started in Scandinavia as a mode of transport. Sandre Norheim of Norway is known as the father of modern skiing and was considered one of the best skiers at jumping, parallel, and Telemark style turning during the 1800's. From there, skiing was brought to the Alps and the US. Skiing might have been invented separately in China, but I'm not sure about that. Alpine skiing came around in the Alps in the 1880:s.
