If you don't mind my asking, what exactly is the gist of the book going to be? I mean how did you pitch it to the publisher and what won them over on the idea?
The book takes a look at skiing from a spirit/soul perspective, with technique and equipment mixed in. The focus is that skiing energizes, empowers, and impassions us, and it is these aspects of skiing that set it apart from other pastimes. It will talk about how that occurs, what happens when it does, how to find that experience, and what to do with it to grow personally and as a skier.
I'm very excited to get started...!
