“Tim Gallwey is one of the great teachers of our time.”—Peter M. Senge, author of The Fifth Discipline: The Art and Practice of the Learning Organization
Have you been searching for a way to overcome your fear, trust your instincts, and ski to your greatest potential? Inner Skiing will help you do all this and more. In this updated edition of the skiing classic, W. Timothy Gallwey and Robert Kriegel offer advice on and examples of how to gain the “inner” self-confidence needed to ski well and have fun on the slopes. From understanding basic terminology and learning how to fall to nailing black diamond runs, Inner Skiing will help you:
Focus on each step of a particular technique—like the parallel turn—then put it all together so the motion seems effortless.
Analyze your fears to distinguish between healthy fear and unnecessary fear that you can overcome.
Achieve “breakthrough” runs in which you experience natural and coordinated movements.
Move to the next level in your skiing ability and feel in control on the slopes.

Gallwey and Kriegel are two of the leading innovators in sports, and this revised edition refines the techniques they have perfected over their long careers. Their easy-to-follow examples and anecdotes will help skiers of all abilities—from beginner to expert.
