WELCOME TO BOBSKI.COM -
HOME OF ACCELERATED SKI IMPROVEMENT.
This site tells about better ski instruction,
ski learning, ski teaching and ski coaching for you, as
a recreational skier. All the training is delivered through the B.I.S.C.C., membership is open to all, over the age of 18.
International ski coaches Bob Valentine
Trueman, and John Shedden enable ordinary recreational skiers
to really improve their skiing very quickly, through
the use of Olympic level coaching techniques.
Our ski coaching is different from ordinary
ski instruction or ski teaching. Your ski learning will
very rapidly improve. You can ski better than you
do, and you will, even in one week.
Bob & John specialise in helping ordinary
recreational skiers of any level above complete beginner,
and in tutoring ski instructors, so you can be confident
of their high level of expertise and success.
You'll also find the difference
between ski coaching and "ski instructing" or "ski school",
and how you will make more rapid and more permanent progress.
Our skiing courses are open to all levels of skier above
complete beginner. Age is immaterial, gender is immaterial.
All we ask is that you really want to
improve. We take both recreational skiers and instructors
to all the European skiing countries, and to North America.
The village of Itter, in the Austrian Tyrol, offers
slopes and facilities that are ideally suited to our
skiing courses, and to developing your skiing in
the direction you want it to go.

Accelerated Ski Learning™ (ASL™) gives
you big advantages by using the most highly developed ski
coaching methods, allied to accelerated ski learning systems,
Sport Psychology, and Neuro Linquistic Programming.
Our techniques are gentle, and simple,
- We have proved yourski learning is faster when
you ski slower. After you've learned you'll overtake them
- We have proved your ski learning curve is steepest
when the slope isn't.
- We have proved that gently is best. An aggressive
"gung-ho" approach simply doesn't work for most folk and
being in a hurry slows you down.
- We have proved that you change your mind and
break through your barriers. By changing your thinking
and your understandings we'll together change your skiing.
- We have proved that these methods work equally well for men as for women - "Gung Ho" doesn't do it!
- ASL is particularly successful for apprehensive
