A New, Completely Revised Edition of the Classic Guide to Better Skiing

Analyze your fears to distinguish between healthy fear and unnecessary fear that you can overcome

Achieve "breakthrough" runs in which you experience natural and coordinatedmovements

Move to the next level in your skiing ability and feel in control

Gallwey and Kriegel are two of the leading innovators in sports, and this new edition refines the techniques they have perfected over their long careers. Their easy-to-follow examples and anecdotes will help skiers of all abilities--from beginner to expert.

Inner Skiing will change the way you ski.
