Scheiber, Seifert & Muller (2011): Instructor-Paced vs. Self-Paced Skiing Modes in Older Recreational Alpine Skiiers

Posted on

This papers aims at determining the differences in the physiologic response of older skiers to three skiing modes. The study is quantifying correlations between rate of perceived exertion and the physiologic response and analyzing the relationship between aerobic capacity, skiing skills, and the blood lactate (LA) response during instructor-guided skiing. instructor vs self paced skiing-1

Cigrovski et al. (2010): Can We Make the Alpine Ski Learning More Efficient by Omitting the Snow-Plough Technique?

Posted on

This paper tries to shed some light whether successful alpine ski learning depends on the technique used informal alpine ski instruction. The question whether the parallel-carving ski teaching approach achieves  better results than the approach based on combined snow-plough and parallel techniques is further addressed. Can we make the alpine ski learning more efficient by […]
