It looks at the technical fundamentals of skiing covering such topics as; the phyics of the sport, why and how do skis turn; lateral balnce; fore and afte balance; edging etc. etc. There is a useful section on boot fitting and the book closes with chapters about the tactical and technical aspects of skiing in challenging conditions e.g. bumps, powder, crud, ice and steeps. There are occasional insights into the techniques of some of the world's greatest skiers and the photomontages throughout the book are helpful and clear.
All in this is an outstanding comprehensive ski book and should form part of the library for any keen recreational skier or instructor.
All ski professionals should read and study this book.
It is an excellent book for all skiers :)
I really like it.
This book helped me to become a better skier.
I'm an intermediate skier and I like to understand the physics of what I'm supposed to be doing - doesn't always translate in practise but this book has really helped me understand how/what/when so I can further improve.
Descriptions are well writtten and photos enhance the information given - it makes sense.
