The book contains the proceedings of the Seventh International Congress on Science and Skiing, which was held at St. Christoph am Arlberg, Tyrol, Austria, in December 2016. The conference was organized andhosted by the Department of Sport Science at the University of Salzburg, Austria. This book offers a broad interdisciplinary spectrum of current high quality research in Alpine and Nordic skiing and in snowboarding. Four keynote speakers and ninety-seven oral presenters have been invited to submit a paper for this volume. The entire scope of relevant topics in skiing is covered by these presentations. In order to maintain a high scientific standard required of this book, a peer review process was utilized in the selection of the papers. In the proceedings of this congress, the keynotes as well as the oral presentations are published. The manuscripts were subject to peer review and editorial judgment prior to acceptance.
