RMCSR to Collaborate with Rocky Mountain Ski Racing

Rocky Mountain Ski Racing is an Alpine only ski program that helps athletes in U16 and older age groups reach the goal of skiing at the Olympic, international and college team level, and introduces a new generation to the joy and purposeful life skills learned in gates and on the snow regardless of socio-economic background. Through this lifetime sport, we will help prepare a new generation of leaders for our communities and enable this wonderful activity to thrive for generations to come.

CU Sports Medicine provides funding to expand injury risk study with the Colorado Rapids

Dr. Rachel Frank, an orthopaedic surgeon at CU Sports Medicine, recently provided funding to increase the number of mobile testing stations for the injury risk reduction study currently underway with the Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club.  The RMCSR  will now have the ability to collect the movement performance of an entire soccer team with wearable sensors and high-speed video in under one hour.  

RMCSR becomes member of Youth Sports Safety Alliance

Since 2010, the Alliance has worked to raise awareness, advance legislation and improve medical care for young athletes across the country. Spear headed by the National Athletic Training Associiattion (NATA), the Alliance includes more than 230 organizations that have joined together to reduce injuries and prevent catastrophic events in youth sports.

RMCSR joins the PSIA Technology Taskforce


Members of the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA), Microsoft and the RMCSR performed collaborative research in Aspen, CO to enhance the instruction and education programs of the PSIA. The video is a visualization of movement data captured from wearable sensors (Xsens) during short radius turns performed on slalom skis.

Research Update

Results from First RMCSR Funded Study Submitted to Sports Medicine Conference

Dr. John Seifert of the Human Performance Laboratory at Montana State University (MSU) submitted data on the fatigue and performance of recreational alpine skiers to the 65th Annual Meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).

MSU study finds recreational alpine skiers wearing directional compression tights can ski 30% more runs and vertical feet in a full morning of skiing without increasing muscle fatigue.
