'I want to ski' brings skiing right back to basics with clear and logical explanantions to help explain the key fundamentals and theories of this great pastime. Aimed at adults, either beginners or intermediates, the book carefully explains each stage right from contemplating stepping onto skis for the first time and developing your turns and key skills, through to tackling black runs and mogul fields. Now in his seventies, Paul started skiing over fifty years ago with leather boots and wooden skis and although technology has helped immensely, it is his ability to explain the real key principles of skiing, which are still relevant today, that makes the book such a great source of support. Paul often refers to simple and often amusing anecdotes of physics theory to help the readers actually understand what is technically happening as they try to develop their own ski technique. Readers have found the book especially useful to refer to whilst at ski school in order to support their theoretical understanding of what their instructors are showing them on the slopes. As a result the book proves a great resource to keen parents wishing to support their own children to develop their ski talent. As well as focussing on the technical aspects of skiing, Paul also looks back over his extensive recereational skiing career in order to provide lots of tips and advice on all aspects of skiing and mountain life, be it coping with ice or spring snow to his perception of the ultimate skiing experience for the recreational skier.
