Insulin action on heart and skeletal muscle glucose uptake in weight lifters and endurance athletes. (1/116)

There are no studies comparing myocardial metabolism between endurance- and resistance-trained athletes. We used 2-deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-D-glucose and positron emission tomography combined with the euglycemic hyperinsulinemic clamp technique to compare the ability of insulin to stimulate myocardial, skeletal muscle, and whole body glucose uptake between weight lifters (n = 8), endurance athletes (n = 8), and sedentary men (n = 9). Maximal aerobic power (ml. kg- 1. min- 1) was higher in the endurance athletes (71 +/- 2, P < 0.001) than the weight lifters (42 +/- 2) and the sedentary men (42 +/- 2). Skeletal muscle glucose uptake (micromol. kg muscle- 1. min- 1) was enhanced in the endurance athletes (125 +/- 16, P < 0.01) but was similar in weight lifters (59 +/- 12) and sedentary (63 +/- 7) men. The rate of glucose uptake per unit mass of myocardium (micromol. kg- 1. min- 1) was similarly decreased in endurance athletes (544 +/- 50) and weight lifters (651 +/- 45) compared with sedentary men (1,041 +/- 78, P < 0.001 vs. endurance athletes and weight lifters). Both groups of athletes had increased left ventricular mass. Consequently, total left ventricular glucose uptake was comparable in all groups. These data demonstrate that aerobic but not resistance training is associated with enhanced insulin sensitivity in skeletal muscle. Despite this, cardiac changes are remarkably similar in weight lifters and endurance athletes and are characterized by an increase in left ventricular mass and diminished insulin-stimulated glucose uptake per heart mass.  (+info)

Echocardiographic examination of cardiac structure and function in elite cross trained male and female Alpine skiers. (2/116)

OBJECTIVE: To assess cardiac structure and function in elite cross-trained male and female athletes (Alpine skiers). METHODS: Sixteen athletes (10 male, six female) and 19 healthy sedentary control subjects (12 male, seven female) volunteered to take part in the study. Basic anthropometry determined height, body mass, body surface area, and fat free mass. Cardiac dimensions and function were determined by two dimensional, M mode, and Doppler echocardiography. Absolute data and data corrected for body size (allometrically determined) were compared by two way analysis of variance and post hoc Scheffe tests. RESULTS: Absolute left ventricular internal dimension in diastole (LVIDd), septal and posterior wall thickness and left ventricular mass were larger in athletes than controls (p < 0.05) and also increased in the men (p < 0.05) compared with women (except for septal thickness in controls). An increased LVIDd, septal thickness, posterior wall thickness, and left ventricular mass in athletes persisted after correction for body size except when LVIDd was scaled by fat free mass. Cardiac dimensions did not differ between the sexes after correction for body size. All functional indices were similar between groups. CONCLUSION: There is evidence of both left ventricular chamber dilatation and wall enlargement in cross trained athletes compared with controls. Differences in absolute cardiac dimensions between the sexes were primarily due to greater body dimensions in the men.  (+info)

Bronchoscopy and bronchoalveolar lavage findings in cross-country skiers with and without "ski asthma". (3/116)

Bronchial hyperresponsiveness to methacholine with asthma-like symptoms ("ski asthma") is frequent in elite cross-country skiers. To further the understanding of "ski asthma", 10 nonasthmatic, nonatopic controls and 30 adolescent elite skiers were investigated by bronchoscopy and bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL). Nine skiers were atopic without allergy symptoms. Compared with controls, the macroscopic inflammatory index in the proximal airways in skiers was three-fold greater (median (interquartile range) 3.0 (2.0-5.0) versus 1.0 (0.8-2.3), p=0.008). In the BAL fluid, skiers had significantly greater total cell (p<0.05) and percentage lymphocyte (p<0.01) and mast cell counts (p<0.05). Neutrophil and eosinophil counts were not significantly different and eosinophil cationic protein was not detected. Tumour necrosis factor-alpha and myeloperoxidase were detected in 12 (40%) and six (20%) skiers, respectively. In skiers with ski asthma, the inflammatory index was greater than in nonasthmatic skiers. Lymphocyte subtypes and activation markers, and concentration of albumin, fibronectin and hyaluronan were not different from those in controls. Cross-country skiers have a minor to moderate degree of macroscopic inflammation in the proximal airways at bronchoscopy and a bronchoalveolar lavage fluid profile which differs in several respects from healthy controls. Skiers with ski asthma tend to show even higher degrees of bronchial inflammation.  (+info)

Placebo-controlled study of inhaled budesonide on indices of airway inflammation in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid and bronchial biopsies in cross-country skiers. (4/116)

BACKGROUND: Asthma-like symptoms, methacholine hyperresponsiveness, use of inhaled steroids, airway inflammation, and increased tenascin expression in the reticular basement membrane have been reported in competitive cross-country skiers. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of inhaled budesonide, 400 mug twice daily, on indices of airway inflammation in 'ski asthma', defined as asthma-like symptoms within the previous year and bronchial hyperresponsiveness to methacholine. METHODS: A randomised double-blind placebo-controlled parallel-group bronchial biopsy and bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) study of 25 (19 male) competitive cross-country skiers (mean age 18 (16-20) years for a mean (range) treatment period of 22 (10-32) weeks over the competitive season. RESULTS: No changes were seen regarding cellular inflammation in the bronchial mucosa or tenascin expression. In the BAL fluid, both groups had a significant decrease in activated T-suppressor (CD8) lymphocytes and an increase in macrophages, with no differences across the groups. Within the budesonide group, there was a decrease in IL2 receptor-activated T-helper lymphocytes and an improvement in FEV(1). Asthma-like symptoms were unchanged in 17 (68%) skiers. Methacholine provocation test was negative in 15 subjects, and remained positive in 5 subjects in each group. The improvement in bronchial responsiveness occurred in both groups and was not accompanied by a decrease in cellular inflammation. CONCLUSIONS: We were unable to show any clear beneficial effect of budesonide in 'ski asthma'. As changes in training intensity probably accounted for the spontaneous improvement in bronchial responsiveness, more attention should be directed at reducing environmental stress to the airways than at attempting pharmacological modulation of induced inflammatory changes.  (+info)

Bioremediation (natural attenuation and biostimulation) of diesel-oil-contaminated soil in an alpine glacier skiing area. (5/116)

We investigated the feasibility of bioremediation as a treatment option for a chronically diesel-oil-polluted soil in an alpine glacier area at an altitude of 2,875 m above sea level. To examine the efficiencies of natural attenuation and biostimulation, we used field-incubated lysimeters (mesocosms) with unfertilized and fertilized (N-P-K) soil. For three summer seasons (July 1997 to September 1999), we monitored changes in hydrocarbon concentrations in soil and soil leachate and the accompanying changes in soil microbial counts and activity. A significant reduction in the diesel oil level could be achieved. At the end of the third summer season (after 780 days), the initial level of contamination (2,612 +/- 70 microg of hydrocarbons g [dry weight] of soil(-1)) was reduced by (50 +/- 4)% and (70 +/- 2)% in the unfertilized and fertilized soil, respectively. Nonetheless, the residual levels of contamination (1,296 +/- 110 and 774 +/- 52 microg of hydrocarbons g [dry weight] of soil(-1) in the unfertilized and fertilized soil, respectively) were still high. Most of the hydrocarbon loss occurred during the first summer season ([42 +/- 6]% loss) in the fertilized soil and during the second summer season ([41 +/- 4]% loss) in the unfertilized soil. In the fertilized soil, all biological parameters (microbial numbers, soil respiration, catalase and lipase activities) were significantly enhanced and correlated significantly with each other, as well as with the residual hydrocarbon concentration, pointing to the importance of biodegradation. The effect of biostimulation of the indigenous soil microorganisms declined with time. The microbial activities in the unfertilized soil fluctuated around background levels during the whole study.  (+info)

Organisation of safety measures in an Alpine World Junior Championship. (6/116)

OBJECTIVES: To study the implementation of skiing safety during the Alpine World Junior Championship of 1995. METHODS: A map of the area was made with descriptions of the slopes and all its facilities and the security measures along the course. The number of competitors who started and any injuries reported were recorded in a questionnaire. RESULTS: A total of 452 girls and 546 boys started in the different races. Only four injuries were recorded, all in girls. The overall injury rate was 4 per 1000 runs. An injury rate of 8.3 per 1000 runs was recorded in the downhill. One skier had a possibly severe injury (ISS = 14) in the downhill; the rest of the injuries were minor (ISS = 1). The mean ISS was 4.3 and the total ISS was 17. CONCLUSIONS: A significantly higher injury rate was recorded for young female than young male racers. The injury rate was significantly higher in downhill than the other alpine disciplines in the Alpine World Junior Championship. The injury rate was not significantly different from that recorded one year previously for Olympic racers, and juniors therefore need the same safety measures as Olympic racers.  (+info)

Snowboarding injuries in children. (7/116)

OBJECTIVE: To study injury patterns of snowboarding trauma in children. DESIGN: A retrospective case series. SETTING: A major pediatric trauma centre. PATIENTS: A cohort of 113 children (97 boys, 16 girls), mean age 13.9 years, who sustained 118 injuries secondary to snowboarding. INTERVENTIONS: All fractures were treated by immobilization in a cast; 19 children required a closed reduction. OUTCOME MEASURES: Sex and age of patients, mechanism of injury, injury sustained, treatments and complications. RESULTS: Falls on the outstretched hand from a loss of balance accounted for 66 (57%) of the injuries, uncontrolled falls for 42 (36%) and collisions for 5 (4%). Seventy-nine percent of the injuries were to the upper extremity, whereas 7% were to the lower extremity. CONCLUSIONS: The predominance of snowboarding injuries of the upper extremity seen in children differs significantly from those in adults in whom lower extremity injuries are more common.  (+info)

Snow sports injuries in Scotland: a case-control study. (8/116)

OBJECTIVES: To examine the incidence and patterns of snow sports injuries at the three largest commercial ski areas in Scotland and to identify factors associated with injury risk. METHODS: A prospective case-control study of all injured people at Cairngorm, Glenshee, and Nevis Range ski areas during the 1999-2000 winter season. Personal details, snow sports related variables, diagnosis, and treatment were recorded. Control data were collected at random from uninjured people at all three areas. Random counts were performed to analyse the composition of the on slope population. RESULTS: A total of 732 injuries were recorded in 674 people. Control data were collected from 336 people. The injury rate for the study was 3.7 injuries per 1000 skier days. Alpine skiers comprised 67% of the on slope population, snowboarders 26%, skiboarders 4%, and telemark skiers 2%. Lower limb injuries and sprains were the commonest injuries in alpine skiers and skiboarders. Snowboarders sustained more injuries to the upper limb and axial areas. Skiboarders and snowboarders had a higher incidence of fractures. After adjustment for other variables, three factors were all independently associated with injury: snowboarding (odds ratio (OR) 4.07, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.65 to 10.08), alpine skiing (OR 3.82, CI 1.6 to 9.13), and age <16 years (OR 1.9, CI 1.14 to 3.17). More than five days of experience in the current season and at least one week of experience in total had a protective effect against injury. CONCLUSIONS: Despite a change in the composition of the alpine population at Scottish ski areas, the overall rate and pattern of injury are similar to those reported previously in comparable studies. Several factors are associated with an increased risk of injury and should be targeted in future injury prevention campaigns.  (+info)

Adoption of helmets by alpine skiers and snowboarders continues to trend upward, but wearers do not appear to engage in greater risk taking. Instead, far fewer people wearing helmets reported skiing or snowboarding faster than those not wearing them. Similarly, fewer people wearing helmets reported challenging themselves more than those not wearing helmets. The present study found no support for the risk compensation hypothesis; on the contrary, helmeted skiers/snowboarders appear to ski or snowboard more safely than skiers/snowboarders without helmets.. The decision to wear a helmet for many skiers/snowboarders may be part of an orientation toward risk reduction. The majority of helmet wearers in 2003 also wore them while participating in other sports, most notably when bicycling. Adopters were also older and more educated than non-adopters. Risk aversion may increase with age, hence older guests may view helmets as a safety innovation worthy of use. Likewise, educated individuals who may ...

A riding mistake during improper jumping may be the primary cause of chest snowboarding injuries. Furthermore, snowboarders are much more likely to injure the chest, particularly by rib fractures, than skiers.
The relatively young sport of snowboarding exhibits high injury rates. The current efforts to characterise the injury pattern of snowboarders focus largely on the general snowboard population and upper extremity injuries, the most common injury site in snowboarders as a whole. Snowboarding continues to evolve as a sport. This includes a steady progression in the degree of difficulty of the manoeuvres conducted by athletes and an increase in the number of snowboarders attempting such manoeuvres. The injury patterns across the skill levels are markedly different, and it is imperative that the research directed towards understanding the disparate lower extremity injury pattern of elite-level snowboarders is increased..

To our knowledge this is the first study to examine feature-specific injury rates and potential risk factors for TP snowboarding injuries. Data collection methods were found to be accurate and reliable for age and sex information. There was substantial to perfect agreement for most risk factors for injured snowboarders, including feature use.27 Self-reported risk factors were confirmed with reliable sources where possible. The overall injury rate of TP snowboarders was estimated at 0.75/1000 runs. Feature-specific injury rates were higher for features that supported aerial manoeuvres or a large drop to the ground. Aerial features facilitate more air time and we hypothesise that snowboarders may have more opportunity to lose their sense of body position/orientation and land with more force and this increases the likelihood of injury.. Research suggests that TP injuries are more severe than those on regular slopes.15 ,16 ,18 One study reported an overall TP injury rate of 0.62/1000 ski and ...

Figure 2: Upon falling, the ski pole may bend the thumb in an extreme position and tear the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL), the so-called skiers thumb injury.. The chance of getting a skiers thumb injury may be decreased by NOT using your ski pole strap around your wrist. Using ski poles without platforms or saber handles decreases your chance of injury. The main goal is that you want the ski poles to release from your hands when you fall. If the ski pole stays in your hand throughout your fall, the pole can act as a long lever arm to put a large stress load on the thumb joint. If you fall, it is better to lose your poles and protect your thumbs.. Snowboarding Injury. The most common snowboarding injury is to the wrist. This may be in the form of a fracture (broken bone), dislocation, and/or ligament injury. This usually occurs when the rider falls backwards or forwards and puts his or her hands out in front of himself or herself to brace the fall (see Figure 3). If you have this injury, ...

At a news conference in Innsbruck, Austria today, the Federal Criminal Police Office (the equivalent of the FBI in Austria) clarified that several athletes had been arrested for doping. This remains a developing story. However, Tiroler Tageszeitung reports that Austrian cross-country skiers Dominik Baldauf and Maz Hauke were arrested for blood doping. Austrian police claimed a Kazakh and two Estonian athletes were also arrested.. Baldauf and Hauke were paired in the mens team sprint at the 2019 World Championships where they placed sixth overall. It has turned out that in several places athletes have been caught in illicit methods or during doping, said Markus Gandler, head of Austrias cross-country and biathlon programs and himself a former cross-country athlete. Unfortunately, that affects me, two athletes of us are there. They have been arrested, Baldauf and Hauke. They are gone, I have not seen them.. Back in 2007, several Austrian biathletes and cross-country skiers were declared ...

Objective Helmet use in Dutch recreational skiers and snowboarders (DRSS) remains low. This study evaluated the effects of exposure to a nationwide intervention on relevant determinants of helmet use and helmet use in DRSS. Methods The intervention mapping protocol was used to develop an in-season intervention programme targeted at adult DRSS. A prospective single-cohort study was conducted to evaluate the impact of intervention exposure on determinants of helmet use (ie, knowledge about head injury risk and preventive measures, risk perception, attitudes to head injury risk and helmet use and intention to helmet use) and self-reported helmet use. A random sample of 363 DRSS from an existing panel participated in this study. Data were collected using online questionnaires before and immediately after the 2010/2011 intervention season. In a separate sample of 363 DRSS, intervention reach was assessed after the 2010/2011 season. Results Overall, no significant associations were found between ...

Purpose: Long-distance cross-country skiers specialize to compete in races ,50 km predominantly using double poling (DP). This emphasizes the need for highly developed upper-body endurance capacities and an efficient DP technique. The aim of this study was to investigate potential effects of specialization by comparing physiological capacities and kinematics in DP between long-distance skiers and skiers competing using both techniques (skating/classic) in several competition formats (all-round skiers). Methods: Seven male long-distance (32 [6] y, 183 [6] cm, 76 [5] kg) and 6 all-round (25 [3] y, 181 [5] cm, 75 [6] kg) skiers at high international levels conducted submaximal workloads and an incremental test to exhaustion for determination of peak oxygen uptake (VO2peak) and time to exhaustion (TTE) in DP and running. Results: In DP and running maximal tests, TTE showed no difference between groups. However, long-distance skiers had 5-6% lower VO2peak in running (81 [5] vs 85 [3] ...

BPT. You can feel it in the air: The ski and snowboard season has arrived, and some areas in the U.S. are already open for business. As snow sports continue to gain popularity, millions of people will be hitting the slopes this winter. During the 2016-17 ski season, the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA) reported that U.S. ski areas tallied an estimated 54.7 million skier and snowboarder visits, up 3.7 percent from the previous seasons 52.8 million total.. With the increase in skier and rider visits, safety is always a top concern. Substantial growth in the number of skiers and riders wearing helmets has made participation in snow sports safer, along with awareness and education campaigns that emphasize the responsibility each skier and rider has every time they take to the slopes. For example, The NSAA and Craig Hospital, a world-renowned rehabilitation and research hospital in Denver for people who have sustained a spinal cord and/or brain injury, are partnering to promote several industry ...
Medal Winners: Gold: Gabriella Paruzzi, Silver: Stefania Belmondo, Bronze: Bente Skari-Martinsen, Summary This was the final womenâ s event of the 2002 cross-country program. The event had not been held at the 2001 World Championships, when it was cancelled because of weather conditions. The best female cross-country skier of the past five years had been Norwegian [Bente Skari-Martinsen], but she was better in the shorter distances. The early leader in this race was Russian [Larisa Lazutina], the 1999 World Champion and 2001 Holmenkollen champion in the event. And she was the late leader too, winning by almost two minutes over Italyâ s [Gabriella Paruzzi]. Lazutina led at every checkpoint and had the fastest intermediate split for each time check. But she would not win the gold medal. In December 2003 it was revealed that Lazutina had tested positive for darpopoietin, an erythropoietin analogue, and was disqualified from all events in Salt Lake City. Her teammate, [Olga Danilova], who had originally

Half an hour later, we were slipping and sliding on unshovelled walks toward a Jamaican joint on Greenwich Avenue, a few blocks away. Snow was falling more heavily now. City snowplows were missing in action and most of the shops had closed. It was so hard not to fall that Budd and I were forced to grab onto each other. We stopped to take in the utterly surreal sight of three cross-country skiers in high-end wilderness apparel making their way up a deserted Seventh Avenue. That gave me an idea. I grabbed a garbage can lid, took a running start on a downhill slope and jumped on. The saucer spun me around and around, gaining velocity, before it crashed into a mailbox. Here came Budd on a sheet of cardboard, zipping right past, a big grin on his face. It was this mans constant buzz of energy that had first drawn me to him, already sixty-five when we met. We shot the avenues downhill slope again and again, competing to be the one whod slide the greatest distance. In the course of all that ...
On one of these trips to the Indiana Dunes State Park, I met a cross-country skier in the parking lot. I had never been to this place before, so I asked him what the best trail is. We began to talk, and I told him I was an outdoor travel writer, and he began to tell me about his over 30 ski marathons he took part in both in Wisconsin and all over the world. He suggested I sign up and write about the Birkie, and I registered a few days later for the 2011 race ...

Were you aware that Epilation or perhaps the avoidance of hair through laser was experimentally prepared for about two decades, before it became available for public use as laser hair removal service throughout the 1990s? Phototricholysis or higher commonly named Photoepilation is often a light and laser based procedures, which are available these days in several cosmetic clinics worldwide. The laser treatment method has gained affirmative feedbacks and reviews from the dermatology industry for the efficacy, success, long-lasting effects and it is safety in eradicating unnecessary hair. The ultimate procedure for laser removal is called the selective photothermolysis (SPTL), the main principle about the elimination of hair from the skins roots. The laser specifically targets your skins melanin, whereas when carried out by a licensed practitioner, it will exhibit controlled damage through selectively integrating and heating the areas of ones body in places you want hair regrowth to stop whilst ...

AbstractBackground. Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injuries can have an influence on the rest of the personslife, with difficulties to participate in sports or limit the choice of work and leisure activities.

Skate skiing was introduced to competition in the 20th Century. At the first German ski championship, held at the Feldberg in the Black Forest in 1900, the Norwegian Bjarne Nilssen won the 23 km cross-country race and was observed using a skating motion while skiing-a technique unknown to the spectators.[9] Johan Grøttumsbråten used the skating technique at the 1931 World Championship in Oberhof, one of the earliest recorded use of skating in competitive cross-country skiing.[6] This technique was later used in ski orienteering in the 1960s on roads and other firm surfaces. Finnish skier Pauli Siitonen developed a variant of the style for marathon or other endurance events in the 1970s by leaving one ski in the track while skating outwards to the side with the other ski (one-sided skating);[10] this became known as the marathon skate.[11] American skier Bill Koch further developed the marathon skate technique in the late 1970s.[7][12] Skate skiing became widespread during the 1980s after ...

A handful of fatalities were from skiing off-piste, i.e. using lift-served unmarked routes, but the majority of the deaths in Switzerland have been back-country skiers and snowboarders. One would generally expect these people to be better prepared than those killed off-piste. Four of the back-country fatalities occurred when the avalanche risk was moderate. These include one in the Jura, the first avalanche fatality in this area that I am aware of in over 20 years.. One off-piste fatality of a British skier occurred below les Attelas in Verbier on 18th January when the avalanche risk was moderate. This is generally considered a safe off-piste area, bounded as it is by lifts and groomed runs. As is usually the case, the unfortunate skier was not alone, and other people were also caught by the avalanche but survived.. Interestingly very few avalanche fatalities (3%) historically occur when the avalanche risk is high and none when the risk is very high. The majority of deaths occur when the ...

Thanks to the BMC staff, weve excelled at prototyping and developing product in Vermont, which is why all four Burton Olympic halfpipe medals were won on snowboards coming out of our local factory.

Evan Fike, Audrey Price, Melissa Powers & Paul House. University of Central Oklahoma; e-mail: [email protected] Introduction: The purpose of this study to was to examine difference in hip, knee, and ankle flexibility between cross-country athletes with forefoot and heel foot strike patterns. Methods: Participants for this study 9 cross-country runners, 6 male and 3 female, from a Division II private liberal arts university. Footstrike patterns were determined using in-shoe pressure analysis system in the insoles during a treadmill running protocol. The protocol consisted of four separate one-minute bouts of runs at four pre-determined speeds. Footstrike was determined based on which part the foot hit the ground first, the heel of the foot was a heel strike and if the balls of the feet hit first it was a fore footstrike. Flexibility was assessed using the sit-and-reach test for hamstring flexibility and goniometers measures of range of motion at the hip, knee, and ankle joints. Independent t-tests were

Another reason for the high quality of life in NRW is the numerous leisure and sports facilities. There are over 50,000 kilometers of marked trails for hikers, more than 100 lakes available for swimming and water sports fun on hot days, and 12 nature parks totaling around 13,000 square kilometers cover over 40 percent of the states total area. The Eifel region is also home to the first national park in NRW. Golfers swing their clubs on the manicured greens of more than 170 golf courses. Even winter sports enthusiasts can go skiing and snowboarding in the indoor ski slopes in Bottrop and Neuss or in Winterberg, the largest winter sports region north of the Alps. High-caliber professional sports can also be followed in the sports state NRW. Nowhere is this more evident than in soccer: It is hard to find a density of soccer stadiums, top clubs and fans comparable to that in NRW. Attractive top events are held regularly in the high-tech arenas, such as those in Dortmund, Gelsenkirchen/Schalke and ...

Even though I really enjoy snowboarding I went into this winter ministry season with a few concerns. The first concern was how I could possibly connect with Romanians in a meaningful way. Im still not fluent in their language and I still have much to learn about their culture. My second concern was regarding the fact that I was scheduled to be one of the main teachers for the evening lectures. Most of you realize how far out of my comfort zone (and natural gifting) this is, however I was totally surprised at how things actually went. In the teenager camp, for whatever reason, the teens really liked me! They enjoyed speaking English (many spoke fluently). Some even felt comfortable enough to open up and share some of their personal and spiritual concerns with me and I was able to encourage and pray for them. In the OSCEB and Adults camps I was also amazed at how quickly connections were made with the people in my snowboard groups. Many were intrigued by the fact that I came from Canada to live ...

Seamless energy monitoring in the Flagship of the Lenzerheide. The new Motta Hut is the hub for hungry and thirsty winter sports enthusiasts.. The slopes and ski lifts in the Arosa Lenzerheide ski resort had just barely shut down in 2017 before the bulldozers moved in to tear down the old Motta Hut. The new flagship project had to be ready by the start of the 2017/2018 ski season. The new Motta Hut has room inside for 120 people and outside for 240 more on its ample, multi-level sun terrace. The innovative timber-frame construction ensures a rustic, yet modern ambiance, both inside and out.

To ensure that the restaurant operators would be able to take care of their guests, a HVAC system with the maximum amount of automation was once again selected for the Motta Hut. As with other projects, the system was also equipped with Belimo products. The new sensor product range attracted just ...
Unlike skiing, both of your feet are firmly strapped to a snowboard and should you find yourself tipping over, there is no way to step off the board and regain your balance. When this happens, our natural reaction is to stretch out our hands protectively in front of us to try and break our fall - but unfortunately, this often backfires and instead results in a myriad of wrist problems, if not a broken or fractured wrist. There is even a special term that has been coined for this phenomenon - FOOSH (Falling onto an Outstretched Hand) and its no wonder: From Foosh injury there are an estimated 95,000 wrist fractures each year among snowboarders alone worldwide!. Although wrist injury is the most common result of breaking your fall with your hands, if you suffer a FOOSH injury, there are many different body parts that can become injured. These typically involve your wrist and hand, but you may also injure your elbow or shoulder as well.. ...
Its time to breakout the skis, poles, snowboards, snow pants, gloves, and goggles. Yup! Its time to hit the mountain for a ski trip this winter. Before you head out to the mountain and put your body through the fun (but intense) workout of getting down the hill, stop by your local chiropractors office for a quick adjustment and to make sure that your body is in proper working order. An evaluation of the musculoskeletal system by a chiropractor can ensure that the body can withstand the pressure in the event of a fall or crash because any experienced skier or snowboarder knows how much falling on an ice patch can hurt.. If you have been injured during skiing, it is important to receive a full evaluation to understand what parts of the body were affected. Call your local chiropractor to schedule an appointment today, so we can help you recover from your skiing injuries.. What many skiers and snowboarders dont realize is how effective a spinal adjustment is before and after a trip the mountain. ...

On January 4, high school teams were allowed to begin practice for a heavily restricted winter sports season, with competitions having started on January 14. Updated guidelines have been released in attempts to mitigate the virus, requiring face coverings for all participants during both practice and competition. An exception has been made for wrestling, gymnastics, cheerleading, swimming, and diving where athletes are allowed to briefly remove face coverings in competition during activities in which wearing a mask could prove hazardous or impossible. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends masks be worn at all times during athletics, however, they also stated face coverings should be changed immediately if they become saturated with sweat, a feat that for some sports, will be impossible. The transition back into sports has been met with vastly varied responses. An organization called Let Them Play, which consists of coaches, parents, athletes and referees, has taken legal action ...

Like so much in our time the occupation of the ski instructor is also subjected to the rules of the social and economic political changes. This originate new needs and desires of our guests who have changed the image of the snow sport teacher very much. If the ski instructor was earlier a technical expert and a gifted animator on the ski slopes who brought the mountain world closer to the guest so todays snow sport instructors (ski, snowboard and nordic teacher) should be a professional snow sport pedagogue. The pure experience often is no longer enough for he wants to learn especially the respective sport and improve his talent in the respective discipline. In addition, the products of the snow sport schools have become more varied and more extensive and differentiate themselves clearly of each other. So it offers lesson on, for example, care for children, mixed forms between these elements, excursionism, safety education. To be able to correspond to this inquiry, Snow Sport South Tyrol has ...
