In a nutshell the book will illustrate the rules & dynamics needed to participate competitively, it will give you clarity on what it takes (and what it doesn't). It's a must read for all skiers that want to take the next step in their footing career (or even if they want to keep it a simple hobby). You'll be surprised on how accessible tournaments are for any ski level and how supportive the community is.
After the worlds I can say that our skiing level, our focus and our understanding of the sport are at a whole different level. This book gave us the insight we needed. We went for it and thanks to it had the experience of skiing with the best. Karen is a fantastic writer, I have reached out to her via Facebook and had all my questions answered - furthermore she put us in contact with all the right people to keep us on track moving ahead! thank you for such a great book.
