What's Different about the Piste to Peak Series?

Drills and progressions that you’ll find in most ski instructional videos are great… if they meet the following criteria:

  1. They address your specific needs.
  2. You understand why you’re doing them.
  3. You have some sort of cue to signal whether you’re doing them effectively.

Piste to Peak videos will give you a solid understanding of ski technique fundamentals so you can relate specific movement patterns with specific results on the snow.

How Can I Improve My Skiing?

  • First, determine your goal for a particular piece of terrain... make it attainable.
  • Blend each of the skiing 'skills' appropriately to achieve the desired result.
  • Didn't achieve goal? Time to troubleshoot...
  • Experiment with different tactics and analyse results.
  • Devise a training strategy to develop any weak skills.
  • Goal Achieved? Time to step up the challenge level!

A ski technique video can't possibly be as good as real live student centered teaching... right?

Maybe not... but with all the great information we've crammed in, Piste to Peak videos are a pretty good alternative. They are designed to help you better understand ski technique and give you cues to monitor your own progress.

By the way, we do coaching in real life as well!

Are Piste to Peak videos worth paying for?

Well, to put it into perspective, one day of private lessons at a fancy resort costs about $600... that's $4,200 + tax + tip for a week... then you have to buy your instructor expensive draught beer at apres!

Volume #1 is $20 CAD (that's like $15USD)... and there's no tip required;) so we think it's pretty good value. But what the heck... If you really don't like it, we'll give you your money back.
