KIRKUS REVIEW

A Swiss and the head ski instructor of the Ski Hawk School, Chateau Frontenac, who has evolved and developed this new method of teaching beginners to ski well, in orthodox ""parallel skiing"" from the start. Revolutionary, to those who endorse the snowplow-stemm system. Each step is illustrated with progress photographs and diagrams, and the system consists of three basic things, --work of the skiis alone, knee action, the part played by the shoulders. Exercises, helping master balance and rhythm. Final sections on deep snow skiing and advanced technique. Ends by stating that no one can learn by reading a book only.
