Materials Science at the Service of Olympian Skiers
It was in the 18th century that downhill ski competitions first appeared. Indeed, at that time, the Norwegian army used downhill skis made of long hard wooden boards (often more than 2 meters), such as ash, to compete between soldiers. It is in the region of Telemark, Norway, at the end of the 18th century, that the first ski camber appeared. This type of ski made it easier to perform turns, and this technique bearing the same name today is still in use. A few decades later, the first laminated skis emerged. It was the first time that a combination of hard wood was used for the base and another softer wooden board for the top, such as spruce, which resulted in lighter skis with more flexibility and rebound. The dazzling evolution of this sports equipment was then launched.
