When I was a kid, one of my brothers had a book that I read a couple of times when I was bored and didn't have anything else to read. It was probably from the late 1940s to mid 1950s. It was about some boys, probably in their early teens, who were in a downhill skiing competition. There was some drama about a villain figure who was doing something underhanded to make sure someone won or lost the competition. I remember that there was quite a bit of information in the book about using different waxes for different snow conditions and temperatures, and it was a slalom race. I think maybe one of the boys had a sprain or fracture.

Does anyone know the title of this book? Even though I was not the target audience I found it interesting and would love to read it again.
