Brown, Christopher A.
The goal of this project is to identify common factors between ski related injuries. This was done through a review of technical literature, distribution of surveys, mountain visits, and interviewing professionals within the ski industry. The scope of this project encompasses both equipment and trail design. Potential hazards were identified. It was found that many industry professionals have strong opinions regarding what is a hazard based upon their personal experience, though few have the data to back it up.
