What does vertical drop mean in skiing?
the term "vertical drop" is a word used by ski resorts to describe how "tall" a ski resort is. If the top of a ski resort is 13,000 feet and the base area of the resort is 10,000 feet, than the vertical drop of the resort is 3,000 feet.
aka, the vertical feet between the top elevation and the base elevation.

Answer . \nNo downhill skis are not an instrument, but they still need to be "tuned". Tuning your skis means keeping the edges sharp, the bottoms smooth and free of burrs, and waxing your skis. Basically you are keeping your skis in top shape so that they run faster down the ski slope because t…he goal in ski racing is to be the fastest.\n. \nSharpening the edges - You have sharp metal edges along the sides of your skis. The purpose of these edges is to allow your skis to cut into the snow otherwise known as "carving" a turn. If you didn't have edges you would slide all over the ice and snow and have trouble turning. You use an edge sharpener. Dull edges will cause your skis to slide out, especially on ice so you have to make sure they are sharp. The edges shouldn't cut you, but they should be sharp.\n. \nConsult your local ski shop for proper technique. They can often do this for you. You should have it done at the beginning of each ski season if you ski every now and then. ( Full Answer )

You noticed that the vertical drop is much greater at European ski resorts does that mean that they are better you think Colorado has the best skiing in the world?
Well, itÂ´s not only the vertical that is greater in Europe, it also the sheer size of the resorts. The largest resort in size in North America (Whistler-Blackcomb) is less than 10% of the largest in Europe (Paradiski). So bigger means more versatility and more chance to fins the slpoes of your ch…oice. ( Full Answer )
Vertical branding is usually used widely in management andmicroeconomics. It refers to a situation whereby the supply chainof a company is owned by that given company.
Many people still think that Whistler Blackcomb has the highest vertical rise in North America but that has now been trumped by a ski resort in Canada known as Revelstoke which boasts a vertical of 6000ft. In the US many people think that Jackson Hole has the highest vertical (around 4100ft), This w…as beat by Snowmass in Colorado up until 2008. Snowmass had the highest in the US at (4406ft) however, now that Telluride has opened up Palmyra Peak they have the highest vertical of any ski resort in the country. Their new total vertical rise is 4425ft. Of course, this is just a measurement from the top of Palmyra Peak to the lowest base area in the town of Telluride. Unfortunately, there is no way of skiing all of this vertical (4425ft) in bounds and without riding at least one ski lift on your persuit of getting to the lowest base area (town of Telluride). However, one can ski just over 4000ft of vertical from the top of Palmyra Peak to the base of chair #1. Telluride also offers the highest in bounds ski terrain in the world. Palmyra Peak at over 13200 feet is now the highest inbounds ski terrain in the world, higher than Zermatt, South America, French Alps and any ski resort in the world! -Telluride Ski Resort has the highest @ 4425 vertical feet Correction: Plamyra Peak is the highest in-bound ski terrain in the US, not the world. The highest in the world is Chacaltaya (Bolivia) at about 5300m (or 17388ft.). ( Full Answer )
Skiing is a water or snow sport. It uses to skis which are flatthin pieces of wood that attach to someone's foot to help them moveover the surface. When water skiing the person needs to be pulledby a boat.
Vertices have multiple meanings. They can represent the highestpoints or apexes. When used in geometry, vertices are the axisjoins at a surface or curve, and also a point where two lines meetto create an angle.
Vertical Angles are a pair of nonadjacent angles opposite each other formed when two lines cross. Vertical angles are two angles opposite of each other. Vertical angles will also always have equal angles.
A structure (building or similar) that im predominantly vertical (up and down) - much taller than wide.

Ski-Doo SDI - a quite different and more economical route to low two-stroke emissions and fuel consumption. SDI stands for Semi-Direct Injection, and it describes a system by which fuel is injected, not into the combustion chamber, but into the fast-moving air streams in the rear transfer ports. Bec…ause injection into the transfer streams more than doubles the amount of time available for evaporation of the fuel droplets, specialized fuel injectors like those of Orbital and Ficht are not needed. Direct Injection must wait for the exhaust port to close before injection can begin, but with SDI, keeping fuel from reaching the exhaust is accomplished by the natural scavenging flow pattern of a high-powered two-stroke.

Here are a few of the resorts in Europe with very high amounts of vertical drop. While vertical drop is a key statistic for North American resorts, it is not a data point that has traditionally been used much in marketing European ski resorts. Therefore, this list is not exhaustive. There are many o…ther resorts that fall within the range represented here. Chamonix, Mont Blanc, France : 2,738 m / 8,983 ft Matterhorn ski paradise Switzerland & Italy 2,279 m / 7,477 ft Lauterbrunn, Switzerland : 2,171 m / 7,123 ft Alpe d'Huez, France : 2,193 m / 7,195 ft Davos, Switzerland : 2,034 m / 6,673 ft Les Arcs, France : 2,026 m / 6647 ft Les 3 VallÃ©es; France : 1,920 m / 6,299 ft Cortina, Italy : 1,882 m / 6,178 ft Sol y Nieve, Spain : 1,378 m / 4,521 ft To put this in perspective for North American skiers, Revelstoke has the most vertical drop in North America at 1,713 m / 5,620 ft. Vertical drop as a lone statistic does not provide a very good idea of how enjoyable a resort will be for an individual at a particular skill level, or with particular interests. For instance, the vertical drop number does not provide any indication of the total number of trail/runs/pistes, or the percentage of those trails/runs/pistes designated at a specific skill level. Most individuals who desire "more vertical drop" either want: 1. Longer runs, or ... 2. More expert trails/runs/pistes. If you look at the vertical drop statistic for Cortina (1,882 m / 6,178 ft) it is very impressive. However, only 5% of the trails/runs/pistes at Cortina are rated "expert". On the other hand, at Chamonix 46% of the trails/runs/pistes are rated "expert". Other factors to consider: 1. Whether you are a skier or a snowboarder, you should try to figure out the mix at the resort and the inter-format dynamic. 2. Are you going to be with a big group of friends? It might make sense to select a resort that is more relaxed, less crowded, slower pace, and that provides more and better venues for socializing. My most enjoyable ski trip was to Maranza, Italy, a resort with "only" 807 m / 2,648 ft of vertical drop. The skiing was great, but it was the group of friends, the relaxed atmosphere, and the great food and drink that really made it a week of ski heaven! There are many spectacular resorts in Europe.

WWII bombers were flying at over two hundred miles per hour when they released their bombs. Thus, the bombs were also traveling forward at over two hundred miles an hour when they were released, until gravity began to pull them downward. The bombardier had a very complex, highly secret bombsight, …which was supposed to calculate the distance from the target the bombs should be released, and which could be adjusted to allow for the force of crosswinds. The bombers had to fly straight and level toward the target for two minutes while the bombardier, who was actually in control of the airplane through his bombsight on this "bomb run", got the airplane lined up to drop the bombs with the right amount of lead so that they would come to earth on the target.

A ski slope is 250 yards long with a vertical drop of 100 yardsfind the angle of depression of the slope?
The angle of depression is equal to the angle of elevation, so use the sine ratio to find the angle. sine = opposite (the vertical drop) divided by the hypotenuse (the ski slope) sine = 100/250 = 2/5 or 0.4 sine -1 (0.4) = 23.57817848 degrees which is about 24 degrees

Vertical management is the traditional Western management structure where each person (except the ultimate boss) reports to someone more senior than them in multiple layers. For example: Operator->Supervisor->Shift Mgr->Production Mgr->Operations Mgr->President It has the advantage of clearly def…ined responsibility with each manager responsible for a relatively small number of direct employees but it can lead to an inflexible system where ideas moving from the top to the bottom of the structure and vice verse pass through so many hands that they get lost or changed on the way. It can also inhibit initiative, for example cooperation between people at the same level in an organisation who report to different managers. The opposite approach is a horizontal management where the management structure is broken down into as few layers as possible. This approach also has its problems. As always in management there is no single correct answer..... ( Full Answer )

Bombs don't drop straight down. You have to take into account the plane's speed first off. By the time you think you are over the target, there is still a lag between when you see the target and when you open the bay doors. Also, the plane doesn't stay still - it's still moving as the bombs are drop…ping. You also have to take into consideration any wind, altitude etc. "Now, if you were to drop a bomb in a vacuum, it would land right under the plane, no matter what your altitude or speed. However, in the real world with wind resistance and whatnot, the plane was always ahead of the bomb." Milt's Memoirs - bombadier training in WW2 ( Full Answer )
