Publisher's Summary

Ever had a private ski lesson? Remember how useful it was to talk with the instructor while riding up the chair lift? Imagine two hours of great conversation just like that with a triple-certified PSIA ski instructor produced in an easy-to-listen radio talk-show style. This program covers all the aspects of contemporary ski instruction and technique. It has great tips for all levels of skiers, but focuses primarily on intermediate to advanced concepts. Pump up your inner skier while you're heading for the hills. Topics include: modern day fundamentals of ski technique, analyzing the parallel turn, adapting for varying conditions, adapting for terrain, skiing powder, skiing moguls, and much more.

Style is Style

While learning to ski in my youth, form and fashion were all the rage. Skies together and make sure you have the right look. This book shows that if you're a good skier anyone judging you from the chairlift is not worth the worries. After listening this reminds me of wine. What you like is what matters. Skiing is the same. My confidence is up after listening and I ski how I ski and It works for me.

Fantastic Information, So much fun to listen to

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I love this audio book because it has so many tips for skiing in various conditions. There are many safety tips as well as strategies depending on the snow conditions.

What did you like best about this story?

What I liked best was the content and the pace. It was not rushed, but not too slow. Just right. The content helped me change the way I ski to get more enjoyment. I would absolutely recommend this to a friend or anyone who wishes to have more fun skiing and less time crashing!

Which character – as performed by Mark Herlinger and Bryan Olson – was your favorite?

Mark was the perfect host, but Bryan stole the show with his expert tips and good conversation. This was a well made audio book, and I listen to it many times since purchase.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, if you have some time. I actually play this book while driving on the way to skiing. That way the techniques mentioned are fresh in my mind for whatever condition I might run into.

Any additional comments?

We are always learning and this audio book offers so much advice you must listen to it multiple times. I love this audio book.

Only Skiing Podcast I Saw

I'm a fan of long-form conversation, but I thought this over-focused on "unlearning" what the host was taught years ago. Wanted more tips & techniques, specifics on foot & body movements.
