Equipment used by individuals in Alpine skiing i.e. sliding down the snow-covered hills are referred to as alpine skiing equipment. These equipment include skis, bindings, boots, and helmets. These equipment ensure safety of individuals while sliding down the slopes, preventing head and knee injuries.
Alpine skiing is a recreational as well as a competitive winter sport, with a rising number of individuals taking part in the sport. Although it is not mandatory to use helmets in most of the alpine skiing locations, adoption of helmets continue to increase on the back of awareness about head injuries.
Alpine skiing infrastructure has been witnessing development across the globe, promoting tourism, and even driving a country’s economy. For example – in South Korea, a major development in skiing is being undertaken for supporting the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Alpine ski resorts are continuously extending their facilities in well-established ski regions including North America and Europe.
This large-scale development of alpine skiing infrastructure is attracting more individuals to participate in the sport.
In addition, several ski economies have been expanding their initiatives for increasing the rate of participation in alpine skiing, and to reap economic benefits. Ski & Snowboard Australia (SSA), the governing body of competitive snow sports in Australia, had recently launched a program, called “Little Shredders”, for teaching children basics of alpine skiing without visiting slopes.
