It is no exaggeration to say that Leonid Feldman devoted his life to alpine skiing. I met him back in 1985, I received from him his first lessons in technique on the slopes of the Carpathian Mountains.
After moving to America, Leonid became a professional ski instructor and, together with Greg Gurshman, coach of the Canadian team in alpine skiing, founded a website dedicated ski technique youcanski.com. Articles from this site become for me the main and very authoritative source of knowledge on the modern ski technique.
Leonid writes about the most advanced discoveries in understanding the ski techniques and methods of its perfection. His advice will be useful for skiers of any level.
In 2012 I went to Leonid to Utah back again- to see him and take lessons. He showed me a few "secret" exercise, which allowed me to better understand and feel the whole body of work at the time of turning. It was simply delicious!
I am confident that his new book should become required, for all who wish to improve their technique, and for ski instructors.

Leonid Feldman was met in his student days, was probably in 1974, engaged in canoe slalom. We became friends through a common love for alpine skiing.
All these years, Leonid constantly showed extraordinary interest in all aspects, one way or another connected with the training ski technique.

My name is Arsen Harutyunyan, I have known Leonid Feldman for more than 10 years. We met the first time in Park City, Utah. We had a lot of time to ski together and during our skiing, teaching, and clinics we had a lot of time to talk about alpine skiing. During our conversations I found something very special in Leonid. He thinks and breathes through this sport. I grew up skiing and thought that I was one of the most devoted in this sport, but when I met Leonid, and I understood that I had met someone who was as devoted as me. I read this book and I can tell you that it will help a lot of people, from beginners to intermediates to coaches and instructors.
