    Highly Recommended - great read for the serious skier

    I have read many books on skiing (as a serious aficionado of the sport)... this book is current and cutting edge. Chris Fellows brings a thoughtful approach to ski technique and it's deep relationship to physical conditioning. It also has a lot of pictures of people doing the right moves which are helpful.
