For 16 years, from 1970 until 1986 when he retired, Al Greenberg was editor-inchief of Skiing magazine. Under his guidance, the magazine invested more time and finances on product-testing
and evaluation than all other United States publications combined.

In the mid-1970s, Greenberg was one of the founding members of the American Society for Testing and Materials Committee on Skiing Safety (ASTM), and until his retirement represented the Society at meetings of the International Standards Organization. According to a former Society chairman, Greenberg “ was the heart, the soul, the intellectual brains, and certainly the moral force behind skiing safety standards.”
