Shona was literally born on skis, has worked and skied around the World but has been very fortunate to be based in the Chamonix area each Winter for the last 13 years.
Currently Shona works most weeks in the Winter in Chamonix and the surrounding resorts but also works with the British and the Irish Associations helping to train and grade top level skiers through to peak performers developing both technical and teaching skills. Having recently been to the the World Interski Congress in Argentina Shona is excited about this coming Winter and sharing the skills and techniques from around the World with you.
The Engage the Edge days will consist of on piste (or off piste if conditions are suitable) technical skill development drills and muscle memory techniques to help you improve your overall balance and ski performance outcomes. Video analysis can be used on the hill to support the intrinsic feedback and increase your awareness of your motor movements and biomechanical position.
We look at what helps and/or hinders your performance when you get into different terrain. You may already have the skill but there is possibly something blocking you psychologically or alternatively you may be prepared to throw yourself down anything but you have the grace of an elephant trying to fly :-)
The days are great fun and we all learn together through a supportive emotional environment allowing everyone to express their strengths and weaknesses.
The days are suitable for those who are comfortable on piste and can ski off piste in a fashion but wish to improve efficiency and power to ski faster and stronger with more confidence in all terrain.
