Ski & Snowboard Guide to Whistler Blackcomb: Intermediate Edition

Book Review: Ski & Snowboard Guide to Whistler Blackcomb: Advanced/Expert Edition by Brian Finestone and Kevin Hodder for Whistler skiing books.

Where the heck is Winky Pop? Or Bernie's Bumps? Or Calvin and Hobbes? Where does the Grey Zone end and CBC begin? How do you get to Teetering? Shall I bring trunks if I meet you at Hot Tub?

One of the great ironies about skiing and riding at Whistler-Blackcomb is the relative anonymity of the two biggest ski hills in North America. A number of years ago, I was struck with the results of Snow Country's annual reader poll. While Whistler-Blackcomb was their favorite and got the highest marks for terrain, almost no one could name their fav run on either mountain.

And it's a syndrome not unknown to locals either. I've lost track of the number of times someone's told me, "You've just gotta ski this run I found. Don't know what it's called but here's how you get to it." Whistler skiing books.

Skiing Fitness: Conditioning Training for Ski Sports

The experienced skier does not take to the slopes without being fit. Fitness must be built up in preparation for the skiing season, and maintained during the winter so that particular goals may be achieved and the risk of injury is reduced. Conditioning training should therefore be just as much a part of everyday training for off-piste skiers, freeriders and carvers as the honing of technical skills. "Skiing Fitness" presents training programs for whole-body strengthening, mobility development, the reinforcement of the most used muscle groups and endurance training. This book from whistler skiing books gives information on warming up and cooling down in training and on the slopes, and also gives recommendations for conditioning training on skis. It deals with the special characteristics of conditioning training for children and young people.

The Complete Guide to Cross-Country Ski Preparation

Whistler skiing books found this very informative review by Marko Gracer, former head coach from Slovenia

The book is for all people in cross country skiing, not only for trainers, also for competitors, for every serviceman and for all amateurs. Only someone who has such a experiences from his work can write a book with knowledge for all.

Or like Peter Hale wrote:" Since few skiers can just walk into a World cup or Olympic wax-room to see what's going on, this book is the next best think." I think that all of us working in CC skiing can say just:" Thank you Nat for such a great present!" It's the best practical book of cross country skiing I've ever read.
