The Mind is the Final Piece of the ‘Ski Your Fastest’ Puzzle

You spend a lot of time on your physical conditioning and technical development. How much time are you devoting to your mental training?

Get your mind in the best shape of your ski racing life!

 Ask yourself these questions:

  • Are you your best ally on race day?
  • Do you get the most out of your training?
  • Do you think your ‘mental muscles’ are as strong as they can be?
  • Do you feel totally prepared to ski your fastest on race day?

If you answered ‘NO!’ to these questions (or just want to make your mind stronger than it already is), then I can help.

About Dr. Jim Taylor

headshot-15Considered the world’s leading authority on the psychology of ski racing, Dr. Jim Taylor has worked with Olympic, World Cup collegiate, and junior-elite racers around the world. He has consulted with most of the leading junior race programs in the U.S. The author of Prime Ski Racing: Triumph of the Racer’s Mind, . Jim is a former internationally ranked alpine ski racer who competed for Burke Mountain Academy, Middlebury College, and the University of Colorado.

"My new Prime Ski Racing 101 6-week online course will teach you useful information and practical tools you can use to be mentally prepared to ski your fastest when it matters most."

“When Dr. Taylor met with the girls at Burke, he talked a lot about frustration, anxiety, and  fear in ski racing. He explained to us the importance of positive self-talk and confidence in skiing, and gave really relevant examples of skiers who, just by being more confident, relaxed, and positive, have been able to take their ski racing to the next level. Every time he introduced a new idea he asked us how we felt about it or if we had experience with it, so it gave us an opportunity to make it personal and interact with him.” Internationally ranked FIS racer

Jim was a natural fit because of his years of working with the unique challenges alpine ski racers face, in addition to being a former internationally ranked racer himself. The response from our coaches, parents and athletes has been nothing short of amazing.
