Overview

A New, Completely Revised Edition of the Classic Guide to Better Skiing

Have you been searching for a way to overcome your fear, trust your instincts, and ski to your greatest potential? Inner Skiing will help you do all this and more. In this newly updated edition of the skiing classic, W. Timothy Gallwey and Robert Kriegel offer advice on and examples of how to gain the "inner" self-confidence needed to ski well and have fun on the slopes.

Inner Skiing will help you:
Focus on each step of a particular technique (like the parallel turn), then put it  all together so that the motion seems effortless
Analyze your fears to distinguish between healthy fear and unnecessary fear that you can overcome
Achieve "breakthrough" runs in which you experience natural and coordinated  movements
Move to the next level in your skiing ability and feel in control

Gallwey and Kriegel are two of the leading innovators in sports, and this new edition refines the techniques they have perfected over their long careers. Their easy-to-follow examples and anecdotes will help skiers of all abilities—from beginner to expert.

Inner Skiing will change the way you ski.

I first read Inner Skiing in 1981 as a novice skier. My old copy is decorated with yellow-highlighted passages which I review over and over, like: 'Breakthrough experiences don't occur by trying to make them happen.' My ski instructor in Aspen in March of '82, talking to me when I was having a bad day, asked if I had read 'Inner Skiing.' Hearing I had, he said, 'Read it again!' And so this is a book to read over and over, especially at the beginning of each new ski season. I've been off skis for 10 years; I'm reading it again before returning to the sport I loved. It is the skier's personal psychoanalyst.
