"The Skiing Clinics began out of my frustration with conventional teaching systems. I reached the conclusion that to make real changes to the way skiing technique was being taught to recreational skiers, I had to start with a fresh approach, even if this meant upsetting a few traditional views - and it still does in some places....
Many ski courses are based on set-piece instruction. "First you do A, then B followed by C". You may get some of these steps right but eventually progress grinds to a halt. You have landed on the dreaded skiing 'plateau'. It is small comfort to intermediates that world class racers face it too. And one skiing course can seem like any other, no matter where you go. In the Skiing Clinics, we can cure your skiing ills with a more radical approach.
I never cease to be amazed that most people who come to our ski courses for the first time have spent their entire skiing lives never having heard of the most basic concept of all - that the ski will turn you, if you know how to use it. This is the key to excellence in skiing".
