X14267: Alpine Skiing! in Splash 2020 (Nov. 14 - 15, 2020)
Calling all skiers (pros, weekend warriors, or winter Olympics watchers): MIT has a ski racing team! Come learn how, mathematically, the fastest way around poles down a ski hill is not to travel in straight lines, but sick carves. Wouldn't it be cool if we could ski near MIT in the summer, on, I don't know, a glacier? Do you know the rules of GNAR! If Nordic skiing is more your thing, Norwegian military skis provide the best of both worlds.
