I'm particularly interested in SL and GS tactics.

the only one I would buy is the competitive core training DVD...
but only because it features Ted Ligety rocking the old school long blonde hair! lol

honestly most of those you'll be able to find on youtube for free... also you ski mammoth right?
just talk to Pierre at the Race Dept. and you'll find plenty of knowledge ;)

Thanks.

Are you familiar with Mammoth Masters? I'm deciding between the two masters programs for this coming season, mammoth/snow summit.

The Snow Summit masters program is laid back, which is good for what it is. However, I want much more structured coaching and rigor.

Mammoth all day long, it's not even a question.

I trained with both.

I have the GS Technique & Tactics.  It is not only good for racers, but a great resource for understanding skiing in general.  Stance, balance, different planes of movement & the different parts of the turn are all broken down in a way that even a caveman can understand.
