Looking for skiing terms and definitions – soft copies

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I’ve got an idea I would like to get started on. I am looking for a soft copy, reproducible, of all skiing terms and definitions. I hope to get authorized definitions and stuff (i.e. what most agree to).

Does anyone know of where I might get some?

A friend of mine has a copy of the Complete Encyclopedia of Skiing, which has a lot of what I like, but I have no way of contacting the author to work something out for the definitions in there.

Thanks!

The lady-webmaster of Kunstpiste was hardly 18 and has not even finished high school but was already Nr. 1 on the FIS point list in DH and was totally disappointed to finish 4th at the 1976 Innsbruck Olympics...

I assume what you really mean is abfahrt.

Finally, a simple remedy for the confusion over "inside" and "outside" edge ... instructurs just need to start using the terms Grosszehenkante and Kleinzehenkante.

Ja, Abfahrt ist der richtige Ausdruck, also AF.
I don´t think many would be happy having to use the long German words instead of LTE and BTE which I find very useful.
But congrats on both German terms.

How about Grosszehenkantengriffbeschreibungsgrundsätze?
(for the rest of America: the principles of description of the grip on big-toe edge)
