    Presents the most comprehensive summary of current issues in ski trauma research, and advances the knowledge that can further reduce the risk of injury in skiing. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of the subjects presented in this test, the 24 peer-reviewed papers are divided into the following categories:

    • Alpine Skiing Epidemiology

    • Biomechanical and Physiological Aspects of Skiing

    • Ski Bindings

    • Skiing Safety

    • Other Winter Sports Injuries
