Fat boys, carving skis, cross skis, extreme shaped skis: that is the new language of alpine skiing. And this best-selling classic has been completely updated to explain what makes the shaped skis so revolutionary-and so exciting, especially for beginners. With over 300 specially commissioned color photographs illustrating step by step how to turn and how to maintain control with a maximum of ease under all conditions, and with its clear, explanatory text, this is the book for which a new generation of alpine skiers have been waiting.Featuring more than eighty unique stop-action photographic sequences, it also includes highlighted hints and tips to help all aspiring skiers improve their skills. Based on the newest and least stressful methods, it demonstrates how to deal with skiing off trail or in deep powder, and it illustrates the eleven specific turns needed to master difficult conditions, including moguls.
