Just wanted to share my new found sport, why it took me so long I will never know.
I have just had some excellent lessons at my local dry ski slope, not the same as snow as I have been told.
Prior to having my lessons I did some groundwork looking for some u tube video's which seemed to be aimed at the more experienced skier not beginners, video's and books which seemed to be expensive.
Using my Amazon kindle app on my I-phone I found an e book called Help2Ski for £2.90 bargain I thought and not a lot to lose if I didn't get what it was saying.
It was great in plain English by an author who certainly has had some success in teaching people to ski which is supported through his book. Made fun reading as a little humour was set in to the writing.
The first part about boots as crucial, i turned up for my lesson and was asked my shoe size and just given a pair of boots to put on, within seconds of putting these boots on my toes started to get pins and needles not nice, then remembering what the book said I asked for the next size up and then had to go up to the next size to find the near perfect pair. When coming back in heard some people moaning about their boots so explained to them what the book said and how to ensure you have the right boots.
