INTRODUCTION: In the slalom ski race, the skier loses velocity during the turns and increases it between them (Haugen et al 2007). Because the turn phases are longer than the gliding ones, proper carving turn technique plays a crucial role. The skier controls the trajectory of the skis with force production and on-edge ski angles, trying to avoid excess velocity decrease. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the differences between high and low ranked skiers’ force productions to the skies…

Influence of slope steepness, foot position and turn phase on plantar pressure distribution during giant slalom alpine ski racing

A differentiated role played by each foot in alpine skiing turns is suggested: the outside foot has an active role in the turning process, while the inside foot may only play a role in stability.

Calculation of the contact pressure between ski and snow during a carved turn in Alpine skiing

The macroscopic contact area between ski and snow and the contact pressure are crucial influencing factors for carved turns in Alpine skiing. In the present paper, a simulation model is developed to
