Excellent skiers influence their skis with very subtle inputs.
These inputs are often too subtle to be seen by the untrained eye, but have very clear and obvious consequences.
Most skiers attempt to imitate these consequences, without being aware of the subtle inputs that created them.
This is the source of frustration, fatigue and that ‘out of control’ feeling.
Once you understand the subtle inputs and use them for yourself, you will begin to create your own, excellent consequences.
At each stage in this series of books, you will discover exactly
what these subtle inputs are,
why you need them and
when, where and how to apply them.
Just as importantly, you’ll discover how to control them, shape them, adapt them and adjust them, so that they give you the control that earns you the freedom of the mountains.
Centred balance - your number one priority
There is a sweet spot on each ski, a place to balance, a place to be.
Your number one priority, as a skier, is to find this place on each ski, so that you can become familiar with it, balance upon it, press through it and pivot about it.
There are three questions that will help us get to grips with this issue:
Where is the place?
Why is this place so important? How do I get there?

"Derek Tata, Director, BASS Chamonix Another great day at Vail yesterday and another today at Breckenridge. A load of snow fell throughout the day so omens are good for tomorrow. The lessons from the Ski Performance Breakthrough Clinic in Morzine seem to have been learned and I feel like I've been skiing really well. In particular, the bump skiing is better than ever. Thank you. KA A most unbelievable experience, I never expected to see such a difference in such a short space of time. Thanks for a most memorable week. G McS Thank you for a fantastic week. I really felt that I improved over the course of the week and I am looking forward to returning to Morzine to put it all back into practice. YS ...head and shoulders above any tuition encountered...surpassing our wildest expectations. GE It was the best skiing training I have ever had, I met some great people, developed as a person and loved it! Thanks to everyone on the course and especially to Hugh for sharing his knowledge and experience. MT Dear Hugh, I had a great 2 weeks with you in March and I can honestly say it was the most rewarding and enjoyable 2 weeks of my skiing career to date. ST Dear Hugh, M*** and I wanted to thank you for a fabulous afternoon's skiing on Saturday.

JH & MH Dear Hugh, Many thanks for the couple of days instruction last week ... quality tuition is such a refreshing change, all with a skillfully humorous delivery combined to make the entire week a great success in perfect conditions. My wife rebooked Les Gets for next year as soon as we arrived back in Scotland!! IA Well Hugh - What can I say ? Thank you so much for a transformational experience . My skiing friends in Chamonix were amazed to see the progress achieved in 5 days of the Ski Performance Breakthrough clinic in Austria after 7 years in France ! That must tell all . EL I just wanted to say what a fantastic week I've just had. The effect on my skiing was everything that and more than I had hoped for. KA I had a fantastic week in all senses.

Thank you again. YS Thank's for a fantastic week. I really couldn't have enjoyed the course more - and please do count me in for next year! MB Hugh's unique approach ensured I was more tuned in to my skiing than ever before, so the considerable improvements I made during the course can be built on in the future. RR Very many thanks indeed for the images - great to have them. Skiing with you was an eye-opener, challenging and great fun. I learnt a lot and and I feel that my performance improved significantly - at least to the extent that I can now reasonably say that I can ski! JO Hi Hugh, Just a quick note to thank you for another great week in Morzine. Although it was my 4th clinic with you I still found that I glean more and more from the sessions. KA Hi Hugh,Thank you and thanks for a really great week of skiing. LD The PBC was really enjoyable and I felt I really got a lot out of it. As ever, was great to ski with you. PM

Centred Balance And Athletic Movement - Hugh Monney

How Ski Performance Breakthrough will help you to improve your skiing performance

Excellent skiing performance - what a beautiful experience!

Free and joyful, it is powerful and yet it can appear to be effortless.

Excellent skiers perform each curve intuitively and create unique solutions for the challenges presented at each moment.

Great skiers literally have the freedom to create solutions as they ski.

They earn that freedom by developing accuracy and skill with the key elements of skiing and by blending those elements into a sophisticated, coordinated whole, that fits into their environment.

Wouldn’t it be great to have a clear pathway to achieving this wonderful experience?

This book sets out to take you directly there.

Powerful and effortless performance. Spring Snow - Off piste in the Andes.

Skier: Gavin Kerr-Hunter, Director of Snowperformance.

This series of books has been written with two groups of people clearly in mind.

Firstly, if you are an enthusiastic skier, you will be able to transform your performance using the principles in this book.

The processes are presented clearly, in ways that my clients have shown me to be the most effective.

Confusion will fall away and your understanding will become clear and simple. You will be able to feel your own success and allow your performance to grow and flourish.

You will also discover the principles that allow experts to finesse their performance and you will begin to develop that ability for yourself.
