Still the finest piece of Ski instruction ever produced IMHO.

$30 now on eBay. The music and visuals alone are worth the price of admission! The instruction should eliminate most of your concerns.

Once you digest that will probably direct you to some awesome YouTube material available for free. However, I highly recommend you start with my friend Lito.

I also agree with others here - suggest an equipment check is in order particularly making certain that your ski boots are appropriate and fit well.

I also trust and hope that you spent some time in my beginners Ski tips thread here in the beginner ski forum. Lots of good tips there could be directed specifically at the OP.

I believe Lito also sells his DVDs via his website.
Speaking of Lito, his book Soft Skiing is also a fine instructional tool. It's intended for older folks, I think, but anyone can benefit. It's all about using your equipment, the terrain and the laws of physics to take the strain out of skiing, making it easier, smoother and more fun. It's very helpful.

Never read Soft Skiing have to do that thx!

There are VHS rips of the 3 Breakthrough videos on YouTube - the first video is the best. The demonstrations by the late Jerry Berg and Harb are amazing in the videos as well.

Soft Skiing was the first book about ski technique that made good sense to me.  As a visual learner, reading about movement is not usually that helpful.

 

I like Lito's other books and videos too.  But they started making more sense after I'd had a few lessons with very experienced instructors.

Lousy quality VHS rip here but hey it's free.....

 

I expect after viewing this one would feel it mandatory to pony up $30 for Lito to get a new copy.....

 

Solid gold - still blows me away at how good it is 20 years later! The 2nd and 3rd video are ripped here too but they are not as good as Breakthrough 1 (still very good, 3 more so that 2 IMHO)

 

I just watched the whole thing again........for about the 1000th time....(Berg is still amazing)
