KIRKUS REVIEW

For the novice, an invitation to skiing made with orthodox manners (so far as this novice can ascertain) sets about equipping the new sportsman with boots, binders, skis and ski garb, then sets him or her on skis and moving from the level to the slopes in snowplow, stem turn, christie. Advance technique and the overused wedeln are considered as well, and there is a glance at ski competitions, and etiquette, a list of conditioning exercises, and advice on how to ride the tows.
