The All-mountain Skier free pdf Skiers know that natural ability takes them just so far. Sooner or later they reach their limit and no matter how hard they try their skills don't improve - unless they get help. The All-Mountain Skier gets the reader out of this rut by providing proven techniques and methods to elevate skills and improve the performance of intermediate and advanced skiers on the slopes. From instruction on using edges on Eastern hardpack/ice to techniques of negotiating deep Rocky Mountain powder, this book contains the hard-working information needed to learn to ski any mountain terrain like a professional.
