SKI INSTRUCTORS HANDBOOK - TECHNICAL SKILLS & DRILLS

 

PRICE

€16.00 + P&P

 

DESCRIPTION

Author: Andrew Lockerbie

Andrew draws on his impressive background in ski teaching and coaching to produce thorough, accurate yet easy to understand descriptions of skiing fundamentals – a welcome feature for a book of this type.

 

The book follows on brilliantly from Andrews original Ski Instructors Handbook – book 1, following the same basic layout and using great illustrations throughout. The inclusion of the Ski Way Code and when to teach the various rules during the progression means that “safety” is paramount in producing great lessons. The acronym S.E.L. – safety, enjoyment, learning, is a philosophy that underpins this book.

This book is available in print format only.
