The Stories All Around Us.

Visualize your body as an S shaped ribbon of air from head to toe.  Air simultaneously circulating in out on separate layers inside your ribbon of air.  As you inhale and exhale your body is being continually energized, oxygen constantly recycling while fueling mind and muscle.
Breathing becomes unconscious and effortless as your skiing soon will.  The idea is through looking down hill as you breath in the terrain with your eyes and lungs thus planning your path and energy needs in advance putting you in a constantly flowing “one step ahead” situation.  Simultaneously recharging and learning as you start to float over the terrain rather than wrestle with it.  This added strength will give your more thought time for focusing on where your eyes and energy are focused.  Critical here is to look down the hill planning your relaxed route.  French champion Jean Claude-Killy was a master of this, remember he won gold in all three disciplines at the time.
