What People are saying about this

Ron Kipp
What everyone is looking for: a self-help book for high performance skiers. The way the book is designed, skiers can find help based on the type of skiing they enjoy. This book will really help the high-end skier improve. The ski racing chapter contains great information that shows the beginning recreational racer where to get started and how to progress.
— Ron Kipp, Director of Athletic Preparation, U.S. Ski Team
Bill Grout
This is a good book for the advanced skier whose skills seem to crumble in difficult conditions. The tips are concise and clear. If you're interested in racing, there's a long section devoted to that specialty.
Shawn Smith
Here is a book that will be useful for all advanced skiers who are looking for an edge. It is the first 'how-to' skiing book for high-performance skiers trying to improve on their special areas of interest. One of the great messages is something we in PSIA have known for a long time: the ski school and its instructors are a great source for the advanced skier who wants to advance even more.
