Recently, Men’s Fitness spoke with Dr. Kim Hewson, an orthopedic surgeon by trade and ski instructor on staff at the Telluride Ski & Snowboard School. Dr. Hewson has developed a method of teaching skiing that focuses on biomechanics, helping people ski more efficiently, which leads to skiing longer and lessening the chance of injury.
As Dr. Hewson says in the article, “People often measure skills on the slopes in hours spent on the snow,” he explains. “But if you don’t understand the nuances of how the human body works, all those hours don’t mean that much.”
