The SkiTips concept of teaching yourself to ski using modern media was pioneered over many years by Martin Heckelman, the well-respected international Ski Instructor and writer, to transport his talents and wealth of experience to the broader public through books, videos and DVDs. Over the last three years, working together with Red Team Productions, that concept has been taken to an entirely new level with the SkiTips Apps Series. Starting with the solid foundation of Martin’s well tried and tested methods, we’ve been able to integrate text, video and audio into a clean, portable and interactive structure – a truly multi-media product. Your “Ski Instructor in your Pocket!”.
SkiTips 1 is intended for all levels of skiers and especially for beginners & intermediates.
This App has been created to help you learn to ski well. It teaches all the fundamental skiing skills required to turn & control your skis. It can be used as both a self teaching aide and as a supplement to ski lessons. If you are having lessons, I recommend that you watch the App before your lessons & then use the App afterwards to practice what you were taught during your lessons.
Ski Tips 2 is intended for intermediate and advanced skiers
To become a good, advanced skier you should be able to carve turns on all the runs on the mountain. The first Chapter teaches how to achieve that. It explains & demonstrates how to execute short & medium radius turns and shows how to ski varied radius turns.
SkiTips3 – Powder & Off-Piste skiing
This App teaches how to ski powder & difficult off-piste snow conditions. Using freeze frames & slow motion sequences it teaches all the many different ways of initiating & turning in untracked snow and demonstrates the common errors to be avoided. It starts with the down-up-down powder turn, which is the basic turn that every powder skier should master. It then teaches how to turn in difficult snow conditions such as heavy snow, wet snow & breakable crust using Jump Turns, Jet Turns, Anticipation, Banking, Counter turns, Modified avalement & “Punching”.
