homework help!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
hey guys; I need a little help with my studies here... For my outdoor recreation class, I have to do an "activity profile" and naturally, I chose skiing. I have to write a 10 page essay all about skiing except I can't cover the sport aspect of it. If anyone has any helpful links about skiing that I could use for my research, it would be greatly appreciated. Espescially any stats, trends, motivations, etc. Thanks!

good luck.

Here's an article to get your creative juices flowing:

Ski Industry Eyes Possible Growth

And here's a book you might look into for research:

University of Vermont has a site that has lots of stats and studies on gear, safety and injury data.

you could probably cover 10 pages easily just writing about the history of the sport. from the first big clunker skis and techniques and innovators, their original uses, the growth of recereational skiing, equipment improvements, development of the 'ski industry,' how ski resorts changed the commerce and feel of ski towns, recent changes and developments. whoa, you could probably write at least 10 pages just on all that stuff and other historical issues alone.

i don't have many links, and those i do have correspond to new england, but you could check out for historical value:

New England Ski Museum
New England Lost Ski Areas Project
