It is in many of the standard skiing books, including "The Physics of Skiing".

It has been discussed on this forum many times before, so spending a few minutes doing a search within Epicski would have also turned it up. This was the very first hit I found:

If you are trying to link to your documents it can't be done because you need some sort of web server to post a picture or link. Is it a graphic or text. If it is text, you can open the document in the wordprocessor of your choice and select the text you want to copy then copy and paste it into your reply.. Be aware if it is an official FIS document you may be violating copyright by doing this so if you can find the document online, link to it rather than copying it.
