If you find yourself scanning our pages each month for the latest slalom tips, drills and advice, you’ve come to the right place. You’re about to enter our ultimate guide to slalom skiing – an indispensable reference tool designed to satisfy even the most insatiable slalom appetite. We consulted the experts and developed a slalom hierarchy that will help you identify the level at which you’ve been skiing, then tell you everything you need to know to move up the proverbial ladder. You’ll also find drills that are intended to help you get the most out of your training every step of the way. So whether you’re just starting to feel the pull or you’re a seasoned buoy chaser, get comfortable.
Once you start chasing buoys, it’s hard to stop striving for the next level. But how do you know what that next level is and how do you get there? Well, we’re here – along with a few experts we’ve consulted – to tell you just that. It’s not exactly definitive (every skier is different after all), but we’d like to think it’s pretty close. Just find where you fall in the hierarchy and decide where you’d like to end up. You may be closer than you think.
