PockIt Instructor Books provide a brand new angle on ski books. They aim to make ski technique easy to understand and above all fun. The perfect companion for instant reference.
The toolbox for skiers!
To play a good game you need more than one tool. These books aim to give you some fundamental tools, techniques and tactics to focus on when you are on the slopes. You may read them from cover to cover, only a small section, one page or one tip. Full colour, great visuals and some great tips.
Instant reference. These are small, sturdy books that you can slip into your pocket and bring out whenever you have a moment to refer to. Pick them up at the airport, on the train, on the sofa, in the gym, on the chairlift… wherever it suits… but be careful not to stop in the middle of the piste with it!
PockIt Instructor (Book 1) includes:
- Curves – no straight lines – control your speed and line with curves
- Linking Curves – how and when best to change direction
- Steering – use your steering wheel – adapt your speed control
- Terrain Tactics – where, when and which technique?
“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”
