The Science Behind Ski Tuning & Maintenance
The roll of friction in skiing cannot be understated. The material choices, preparations and regular maintenance and tuning of ski equipment all center on controlling friction forces. Striking the right friction balance between a ski and snow is critical to being able to safely enjoy the slopes. To learn about the importance of striking this perfect through proper ski maintenance and care, join Walking Mountains Science Center for the Science Behind Ski Tuning & Maintenance. Our STEM Curiosity Lab Coordinator, Paul Leininger, will explore the science involved in keeping your skis in tip top shape and you out enjoying the mountains. Please note, this event does NOT involve the tuning of skis for any attendee.
The Science Behind Series is intended for an adult audience.
