About the book

In a universe of simple figures and pedagogical explanations Henrik Thorsen shares his knowledge of skiing technique, in an easy understandible language. In Skiing Technique the reader is taken through the basic moves that are relevant in all skiing disciplines, independently of the skier’s performance level. The book describes the inner forces that the skier must control in order to meet the external physical forces acting on the skier. Skiing Technique thus describes how to move on skis within skiing’s four axes of movement and put it together in one fluid motion through the turn phases. You can read Skiing Technique to improve your own abilities on skis or to teach others. Skiing Technique is the sequel to the book Skiing Mechanics by the same author.

These books are part of a series of books about skiing, based on practical and theoretical experience gained on several of the world’s continents. The books are written by professional ski instructor and engineer, Henrik Thorsen, who has gathered inspiration from all the great ski nations across the globe: from New Zealand to Canada, from France to Argentina, from Japan to Denmark.

Curiosity and passion has steered Henrik Thorsen through 20-years’ involvement on the international ski scene, most notably in the Danish skiing community. Henrik Thorsen has trained professional ski instructors for the Danish Ski Federation as well as the dedicated ski instructors at Ski Academy Europe and furthermore, he has taught at a long list of international ski schools, companies, high schools, ski clubs and travel agencies.

Solid Skiing started as the Danish website Skiteori.dk and its innovative and different approach to skiing quickly became very popular. Henrik Thorsen then decided to delve deeper into the mechanics and techniques involved in skiing, and his extensive research and calculations were subsequently translated into valuable insights on how to find the most direct way to a more solid, more enjoyable, freer skiing adventure.
