The Winter Film Festival: The Physics of Skiing

Edgework:
You ski but do you really know how you ski? It’s a sport that demands solid technique (and lots of practice) to do well and that technique must work in conjunction with the actual physics of the sport–the ability to make a pair of skis (or a ski board) turn, stop, change direction.
As a warmup to this year’s fun of films and videos on skiing, here’s a nice introduction to the physics and science of the sport. An informed skier is going to be a better skier.
So…get informed. Push the button and in just minutes, you’ll be smarter about the sport than you were when you clicked into the site.
