    Description"Covers more information than a week's worth of private lessons." - "Ski magazine". "The All-Mountain Skier" takes you to the most difficult places on the mountain - bumps, steeps, and trees - and helps you conquer them. If you yearn for speed, gravity-defying jumps, or fluid grace on challenging terrain, here is your step-by-step guide to becoming an expert all-mountain skier. This second edition contains all the information you need on the latest equipment - including shaped skis, boots, bindings, and footbeds - to perform like a pro on crud, hardpack, powder, and ice. "Wow! This book can help you conquer the steeps of Valdez, the peaks of the Alps, the powder of Alta, and everything in between. A blizzard of information that will truly change the way you ski." - Gordy Peifer, U.S. (2000) and Canadian (1998) Freeskiing Champion, ski film star.
