Overview

The first International Congress on Science and Skiing was held in Austria in January 1996.
The main aim of the conference was to bring together original key research in this area and provid an essential update for those in the field. The lnk between theory and practice was also addressed, making the research more applicable for both researchers and coaches.
This book is divided into five parts, each containing a group of papers that are related by theme or disciplineary approach. They are as follows: Biomechanics of Skiing; Fitness testing and Training in Skiing; Movement Control and Psychology in Skiing; Physiology of Skiing and Sociology of Skiing.
The conclusions drawn from the conference represent an invaluable practical reference for sports scientists, coached, skiers and all those involved in this area.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A ground-(but not bone)-breaking synthesis of science and sport that alleviates the anguishing seasonal trade-off between studying for the chem midterm and hitting the slopes. Keeping the technical level suitable for researchers, coaches, trainers, and skiers, provides recent research into both the theory and practice of the biomechanics, fitness testing and training, movement control and psychology, physiology, and sociology of skiing. The 50 papers were selected from a January 1996 international conference in Austria. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
