Does this ring true to you?
Some days you ski brilliantly - everything flows and you rock.
...yet other days you ski like a goat.
Everything falls apart.
Your limbs go in every direction.
You fall all the time. You become frustrated and angry.
Perhaps, you even feel embarassed and yet, yesterday, you were a ski GOD!
Alternatively.... perhaps you are a good solid skier who has simply reached a plateau in your skiing ability.
You consistently enjoy your skiing ... but you no longer feel like you are making real progress.
Again, you probably notice that you ski better on some days,
and then perhaps you wonder why you do not ski like that all the time as you evidently have the skill within you.
Well.... In both these cases, what is going on is that on some days, you are in a peak mental state.
and it is your concurrent state of mind that affects how you ski during any particular moment.
Thus, by being able to control your state, you become able to influence how you ski.
We will teach you some superb mental tools to help you to master this.
Do you ever have that voice in your head when you ski?
That "all so helpful" voice constantly reminding you, "Lean forward", "Bend your knees", "You are going too fast", "You will hurt yourself"... or perhaps it is more evil: "You will never learn" or "You are NOT GOOD ENOUGH".
In actual fact, that voice has a positive basic core intention to protect you.
Sometimes physically. Sometimes psychically.
However, often that inner voice actually stands in the way of rapid improvement.
The truth is we do not always support ourselves with our own internal dialogue and that too can affect how you ski.
We will teach you how to control that internal voice.
We will teach you how to eliminate its negative power, and channel its positive intention to help you to improve your skiing.
New for the 2011/12 season, when you stay at Chalet Maison Jaune, we offer an optional and complimentary course to help you master the mental side of skiing - to empower you to ski at your own peak performance every run.
At Chalet Maison Jaune, we offer all our guests ski orientation to show them around the mountain.
We show you the best runs, the best mountain restaurants, how to get back to the chalet. Important stuff like that....
Leighton, life coach and author of the book, "Skiing without Fear", combines neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), visualisation and inner resistance techniques with skiing. He offers his expertise to combine your ski orientation with some peak performance coaching. He teaches you some stunningly simple, yet really powerful, mental exercises which you can use anytime to control your state and thus be able to reproduce your best ski performance whenever you wish.
Here at our chalet in Chamonix, over the years we have seen many, many skiers. What we have noticed is that in the vast majority of intermediate skiers, it is not a lack of technique which is holding them back from becoming better skiers.
It is their inner game. The mental side of the sport..
If you are someone who desires to improve your skiing and feel that it is your inner game which is holding you back, then take action now. Invest in yourself by choosing to stay at Maison Jaune this year, and we can help you to unleash your greater skier!
This peak performance course is only available when you stay at Maison Jaune, so find an available date - and book now.
