Beginning, intermediate, and advanced skiers should all be able to pick up valuable tips from this video. After the fundamentals are covered, two distinct approaches to skiing are reviewed. The Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA) System and the Holistic Approach offer separate advantages. The former allows ski instructors the flexibility of using the best equipment available today, while also offering students the chance to try out new equipment that may become standard tomorrow. The holistic teaching method focuses on helping students increase their mind-body awareness by using strength and flexibility exercises that incorporate yoga and t'ai chi.
