So I'm working on a project for a materials science class, and we picked race ski construction as our focus. We have to pick a material used in race skis to analyze, compare to other comparable materials used, weigh the pros and cons, etc. I was wondering if anyone knew of any good resources that could provide detailed descriptions of materials used in skis. We need to be able to talk very in depth about material properties and so far it has been difficult to pinpoint specific materials, I can only find general stuff like "made with polymer" which won't really cut it. Appreciate any help, and rip on woooohooo winters almost here! Sorry if this is in the wrong section, wasn't sure whether it belonged in ski gabber or here.
EDIT: I think we are focusing on base material to be more specific.
