  • Equipment Information: Learn how ski equipment is designed and manufactured.

Skier's Almanac and Atlas.
Now you have one place to get the facts on every ski resort in North America! Click on a resort and the trail map appears. Zoom-in to individual runs. You can even take a 3-dimensional fly-around the top ten rated resorts.

Click on a "Topic Button" to access over 50 categories on each resort, including lift ticket prices, skiable acres, and number of lifts. Get the facts on average snowfall and temperature, as well as travel, dining, lodging and entertainment information. Click another button to look up important phone numbers like the mountain snow report and ski school information.

Interactive Ski Lessons.
Multimedia instruction comprised of video, graphics, animation, photos and text will teach you to ski like a pro! Whether you are intermediate or advanced, these lessons will enable you to jump to a new level. Tough conditions like bumps, powder, steeps and ice melt away as you learn how to slice instead of skid through the turn. You will ski with more confidence and control.

Equipment Information.
Did you ever wonder how your skis were designed and manufactured? Did you ever want to know what the difference is between a recreational and a pro racing ski? How are boots designed and molded? What's the difference between an inexpensive binding and a top of the line binding? Is safety part of the compromise? Now you can answers to these and many other questions about equipment.

Click on the "Ski Button" to see a video on your computer screen about ski design and manufacturing techniques. Click on other buttons to learn how bindings, boots, poles, goggles and clothing are designed and manufactured.

Use this CD-ROM to plan your ski vacations.
