1. A ski monitoring system comprising:

  • at least one wireless port for providing bi-directional communication with one or more MEMS sensors or actuators, wherein the at least one wireless port is usable in providing wireless communication in a local area;

    a wireless port providing bi-directional communication with a cellular service provider network, wherein the service provider provides wireless communication in a macro area using a base station;

    a processor coupled to the at least one wireless port;

    a memory medium coupled to the processor, wherein the memory medium comprises executable program instructions to;

    at the specified intervals retrieve information from the sensor sub-system, and based on such information and the selected user information, and the ski equipment information, perform piece-wise calculation of velocity moments and reactive forces applied to the skis and skier body;

    provide corrective or emergency feedback to the actuators embedded in the ski equipment; and

    to construct graphical representation of the skier body during the run;

    store these piece-wise calculation in the mobile terminal memory or transmit them to the remote destination;

    a memory medium coupled to the processor, wherein the memory medium comprises storage of the system operational parameters;

    user information;

    the selected user ski equipment information;

    a ski slope topological information;

    type and location of sensors and actuators;

    IP addresses of the remote computer systems for downloading of the topological information and uploading measurement information; and

    a user interface to allow entry of the system operational parameters.
