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

Have you been searching for a way to overcome your fear, trust your instincts, and ski to your greatest potential? Inner Skiing will help you do all this and more. In this newly updated edition of the skiing classic, W. Timothy Gallwey and Robert Kriegel offer advice on and examples of how to gain the "inner" self-confidence needed to ski well and have fun on the slopes.

Inner Skiing will help you:

Focus on each step of a particular technique (like the parallel turn), then put it  all together so that the motion seems effortless

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

Achieve "breakthrough" runs in which you experience natural and coordinated  movements

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.

About the Author

W. Timothy Gallwey has been called the catalyst for the era of sports psychology. Since the publication of Inner Game books on tennis,

golf, and skiing, "inner skills are considered to be as important as technical skills by athletes and coaches. Gallwey is now a sought-after

speaker and seminar designer. He lives in Agoura Hills, California.

Dr. Robert Kriegel, a former all-American athlete, has coached both Olympic and professional athletes. The New York Times said his work "spurred a revolution in performance practices.  He is now a commentator on ESPN for the U.S. Professional Ski Team and on National Public Radio's Marketplace program and has recently done two specials for PBS.
