Understanding the properties of snow and how it changes and interacts with the skis will help you appreciate the special phenomena that occur at the triple point, where the solid, liquid, and vapor phases coexist. You'll learn about alpine, cross-country, and speed skiing techniques, wax performance, and you'll get scientific data that is not readily available on the technical specifications and performance of ski equipment.About the Author: David A. Lind is Professor of Physics at the University of Colorado in Boulder. He has been both Chairman of the Department of Physics and Director of the Nuclear Physics Laboratory, which he organized when he came to Colorado in 1956.
