Skiing and Snowboarding Equipment — 5 papers evaluate release bindings for World Cup freestyle skiers; current binding settings standards; the means of developing a learning binding for beginner skiers; the many variables involved with on-snow ski boot pressure measurements; and an apparatus for measuring mechanical properties of snowboard boot/binding systems in bending.

Epidemiology — 7 papers discuss the differences, including injuries and overall injury rate, between alpine skiing, telemark skiing, and snowboarding.

Knee Biomechanics — 2 papers study the use of a mechanical knee simulator and "load cases" that may help in understanding the high injury rate to knee ligaments.
