From the contents:
At the Triple Point.- Snow: The Playing Field.- Equipment: Properties and Performance.- Alpine Skiing Techniques.- Interactive Dynamics of Alpine Maneuvers.- High-Performance Skiing.- Nordic Skiing.- Adventure Skiing.- Friction:Glide and Grab.- Epilogue: Physics, Skiing, and the Future.- Technotes.
Understanding the properties of snow and how it changes and interacts with the skis will help you appreciate the special phenomena that occur at the triple point, where the solid, liquid, and vapor phases coexist. You'll learn about alpine, cross-country, and speed skiing techniques, wax performance, and you'll get scientific data that is not readily available on the technical specifications and performance of ski equipment. The new edition will include a chapter on biomechanics physiology of skiing. Other chapters will be revised brought up to date. The discussion of Alpine skiing will include an extensive discussion of the new "turning" skis.
