The Athletic Skier
The author of How the Racers Ski teams up with master ski teacher/boot-fitter Evrard to produce a book that will define the goals of skiing for the next decade. Concise, yet broad in scope, it discusses everything from ski and boot design to racing techniques and the goings-on at the World Cup. Photos.
