    STP 1266 features state-of-the-art research on skiing safety called from worldwide experts. In addition to providing professional and practical information, this definitive publication includes the latest data on the changing nature of alpine skiing injuries. 37 peer-reviewed papers cover:

    Skiing Safety Organizations--2 papers focus on skiing injury reduction efforts by both the National Ski Patrol System and the development of ASTM skiing safety standards over the past 20 years.

    Epidemiology of Skiing Injuries--Current trends in injury rates and injury severity throughout the skiing world are explored in 11 papers.

    Biomechanics in Snow Skiing--9 papers discuss the specific mechanics of skiing and skiing injuries.

    Injuries to the Knee--The most critical injuries across the skiing population are addressed in 7 papers.

    Other Winter Sports Injuries--Such concerns as altitude illness and stress dependent heart rates as they relate to skiing and snowboarding injuries are discussed in 3 papers.

    Skiing Equipment--One paper examines methods for reducing impact injuries and four papers address the concept, design, evaluation and value of ski release bindings.

    For sports medicine physicians, biomechanics, sports physiologists, human biodynamics researchers, ski area management professionals, ski trade organizations, skiing equipment manufacturers, skiing coaches and trainers and any individual interested in this alpine sport.
