Paper reports research on dynamic system characteristics of snow skis. Laboratory and field measurements of frequency response, running surface pressure excitation, and static system characteristics are intended to provide a data base of physical information to guide future design and research. Laboratory testing procedures used give meaningful information for “straight running” but not for “turning.” In general, the turning and straight running maneuvers must be examined independently. This paper summarizes the general research observations with a minimum of detail included.
