It's a real honor to just be mentioned in a book with the best skiers in the world. Karen has gotten to the real deal about how tournaments are a great way to perpetuate the sport. If you can barefoot ski and get into a barefoot suit, SIGN UP!

Format: Paperback
This book gave us the additional push we needed to participate in the 2012 Worlds. We had always been weekend warriors and weren't at all confident to participate in such a big event!.. After reading through beautifully written experiences illustrated in this book we went for it and had a fantastic time competing, networking and becoming part of the international barefooting family.

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.
