Stability in Alpine Skiing -- Science and Engineering of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games (Encore)

With the 2018 Olympic Winter Games underway, it's a great time to revisit our video about stability and vibration damping in alpine skiing, from the 2014 Olympic Winter Games.

Alpine skiing and vibration damping: Julia Mancuso, Heath Calhoun

Kam Leang, a professor at the University of Nevada, Reno, and Tom Watson, of Watson Performance in Hood River, Ore., describe how advanced materials and engineering help reduce unwanted vibration, optimizing the performance of athletes.
