go skiing Can I say skiing as a noun to refer to that sport? Can I say for example, you should learn with a coach when you are skiing?

This is an example of a gerund, i.e. a verb being used as a noun. If you search online for 'gerund', you will find lots of good examples and explanations.

1. yes 2. "If you want to learn how to ski, you should learn with a coach." In your example sentence, 'skiing' is no longer a noun, it is a verb.
