Alpine ski performance and injuries are largely determined by the loadings between snow, skis, and skier. The understandings of and insights into these interactions have been enhanced in the past decade by field-based, three-dimensional kinetic analyses, as well as by laboratory modeling. Mechanical Interactions of Snow-Skis-Skier highlights the recent work from international scientists in this area. The DVD focuses on key mechanical factors, such as force and energy relationships, that affect race performance and that are involved in ski injuries.

Among the topics covered:

• Loads acting on the skier
• Lateral actions
• Rotary actions
• Vertical actions
• Fore/aft actions
• Concluding thoughts
