A quote from the book:
Each skier brings a unique package of physical, mental, and motivational parameters to the mountain. This is part of the reason I still teach skiing -- it's fun because it's always changing. Each student provides a fresh experience and a clean palette to create with. Over the years, identifying the strategies for effectively helping students has culminated in this book. The better you conditioning, the better you will ski. Tuning in to your equipment allows you to interact more efficiently with the snow. Knowing where and how to change direction, speed, and intensity to match the demands of the terrain and your personal desires helps, too.
For those who are interested in taking a closer look at their overall strengths and weaknesses. volumes of new information have emerged due to advanced equipment, changing attitudes toward sport fitness, active lifestyles, increased access to mountains, and a growing desire to perform well as we age. Wading through all this information can be challenging. With the right combination of specific sport knowledge and customized practice concepts, you can quickly reach a higher level of skiing performance. An approach that is too broad can suck up valuable chunks of your training time with unreliable results. Most avid skiers opt for the most direct route to improvement, which begins with understanding their profile.
