Uses the extremes of temperature that occur in a day's skiing to show the range of mechanisms through which the human body maintains a steady internal temperature and protects its vital organs, such as shivering, hair erection, and rerouting of blood supplies to conserve heat. Increased blood flow to the body surface, sweating, and panting to lose heat is also reviewed. NOTE: Contains some nudity.
