Over the last 20 years I have traveled the world to do clinics and bring my coaching to people at their own lakes. Most of the time I stay with the host and spend the entire time with them and some of the skiers at the clinic. In this more intimate setting it makes me accessible for ‘think tank’ type conversations and digging deeper into how all the pieces of the puzzle fit together. We talk about everything from technique, to ski set up, ski design, Zero Off strategies, fitness, nutrition, how to compete, planning and lots of other topics. My vision with Bro’s week is to set up this type of setting here in Orlando to kick off the ski season. 6 Bros, 4 days of skiing, where we can have some fun; rip some turns and get a better understanding of slalom skiing. I have always had the most success with students when I can explain concepts and help skiers see the big picture so they actually understand the WHY behind the instruction they hear.
