Nordic Skiing: Steps to Success serves as a primary resource for skiers starting classes or as a self-instruction guide. Readers use a progression of skills called the "steps to success" to learn three different types of cross-country skiing: classical (traditional), freestyle (skating), and Nordic downhill (telemark). Each of the steps is an easy transition from the one before. The first few steps provide a solid foundation of basic skills and concepts. As readers progress, they will learn how to balance on skis and perform traditional and modern cross-country manoeuvres such as the diagonal stride, kick double pole, marathon skate, Vl skate, wedge turns, telemark turns, and more. Each of the 13 steps (chapters) explains why the concept or skill is important, identifies the keys to correct technique, helps skiers correct common errors, explains how to practise each skill in realistic ways, lists specific performance goals for each drill, gives a summary checklist for evaluating proper technique, and lets skiers proceed at their own pace and measure their own progress. In addition to this progression of skills, Nordic Skiing features 180 sequential illustrations of correct techniques. By using the error correction sections, skiers can make appropriate adjustments in body position and basic mechanics. Nordic Skiing: Steps to Success will help readers get started, make steady progress, and adjust to various skiing situations.
