Press Reviews – Book 1
“What I found particularly useful is that it also acts as a reminder of the various bits of advice your instructor may have given you which are so easily forgotten amongst the mental chaos of trying to get your technique right. And it also ties in closely with what youll learn in ski school, so youre not taking on completely new ideas. The book is easy to read with short, pithy instructions and illustrates with good colour photos. The pages can be turned whilst wearing ski gloves (just about) and it makes a much cheaper option than a ski instructor – youll never get one of them in your pocket!!”
“Author Sally Chapman, who trains ski instructors, has produced a simple-to-use manual for all abilities. Read one of her suggested drills for a certain type of slope on the chairlift and put it onto practice on the ski down. A brilliant and simple idea – and it has a waterproof cover”

Press Reviews – Book 2
“The new book contains sections on making curves and also tactics for ice, bumps, steeps and variable terrain. It is crammed with photographs and simple diagrams, guidance on where and when to practice and a top tip for every situation. Team all this up with water-proof covers, thick, tough pages and an easily managed spiral binding and the result is an ideal skiers companion and a perfect Christmas present. So if I see someone fishing deep into a ski jacket pocket, to engrossed in a restaurant, on a lift or at the side of the piste, or even doing a bit of swotting on an east coast mainline train or city bus, there is every possibility that the PockIt Instructor is the culprit!”
