Abstract : This session dealt with three basic topics: (a) sliding friction of snow dealing with the basic problems of static grip and kinetic glide coefficient of skis and runners on snow as well as the problem of friction of snow on snow at slow speeds; (b) properties of flowing snow as related to avalanche dynamics; and (c) properties of blowing snow. These topics are all interrelated to some degree, particularly b and c. A summary of the committee discussions relevant to each topic appears below.
