Here, we present an update on the biomechanics of alpine ski racers and their equipment. The technical and tactical ability of today’s world-class skiers have adapted substantially to changes in equipment, snow conditions and courses. The wide variety of terrain, slopes, gate setups and snow conditions involved in alpine skiing requires skiers to continuously adapt, alternating between carving and skidding turning techniques. The technical complexity places a premium on minimizing energy dissip
Here, we describe how Olympic athletes from four of the major alpine ski racing nations prepared for the Olympic Games in South Korea in 2018. This overview describes their typical exercise programs with respect to physical conditioning, ski training and periodization, based on interviews with the coaching staff.
From high-speed cameras to smart textiles – the Alpine elite use modern technology to refine their skiing technique. – We are working proactively with digitalization, says Tommy Eliasson, Alpine director of the Swedish Ski Association.

The potential usefulness of virtual reality systems for athletes: a short SWOT analysis
By means of advanced sensor tests, researchers can measure exactly where on a track a skier slows down or speeds up. This allows their performance to be analysed and training sessions adjusted. The goal is to win more medals during World Championships.
