I had never heard of the man until I bought his book (as well as The All-Mountain Skier, which is actually more useful to me) a couple of weeks ago based on a suggestion I received. I haven't even read the thing yet.
"I watched a snail crawl accross the edge of a straight razor and survive. This is my dream...this is my nightmare."
"There's nothing that I detest more than the stench of lies."
"You have to have skiers who are moral, and at the same time are able to use thier primordial instincts to kill without feeling, without passion, without judgement.."
