Review:

Here are six tips to ski faster: Hands forward; Eyes looking ahead; Weight mostly on downhill ski; Skis parallel; Wide stance, lower upper body; Torso aimed toward fall line. Ski Magazine 20000301 While the book is aimed at aspiring racers, there's plenty for recreational skiers. And it really is true: Ski faster and you'll ski better. 'Ski Faster' is a solid gift for that young racer, or the older would-be racer on your list. Boston Globe 20000106 For a racing guide, Ski Faster is amazingly well written, clear, useful and interesting throughout. SKi Press 19991201 It covers everything you would ever want to know about the sport, from dryland training and equipment selection, to on-snow training tactics by ski racing discipline. It also contains the most detailed waxing and ski preparation guide ever available to the public. USSA Alpine Masters 19991201
