The author writes in his Preface: "You may ask, just what is this natural way? It is, first of all, a clean break with the complicated and distorted body positions many ski schools demand, particularly the forced shoulder swing to activate turns. For too long a time, American ski technique has stagnated....In the interim, the new system, with slight variations of technique and style, has become the method used by all truly modern skiers, including the new Olympic champions...."
