    In Chap. 4 of "Universal Ski Techniques" by George Twardokens (publ. by
    Surprising Well -- Reno NV) there is a section entitled "Location and the
    Path of the Skier's Center of Gravity" that may be helpful. Other sections
    include: "Dynamic Balance", "Foot to Foot Pressure Distribution", "Pressure
    Exerted Laterally", "Fore-Aft Pressure" and other topics. From a
    biomechanical perspective this is probably the most scholarly book on
    alpine skiing available, from an author who is a long time leader in the
    Professional Ski Instructors Assn. and an emeritus professor of kinesiology
    at the University of Nevada. Hope this proves helpful. John Martinson
