"The BPS Body Prep for Ultimate Skiing program is so much more than a typical off-snow ski program. It is an enhanced physical literacy and a valuable toolbox for your body both on and off the slopes. Starting at the feet and moving up to the neck, each week contains useful learnings and key exercises that you can take with you long after the program is complete. Add to this, the fortnightly conversations about ski technique, and you have a one of a kind program - I highly recommend it.”


- Country Manager, Le Bent Canada

“I want to provide some feedback as to what I felt in the first few days of skiing this season. Our conditions are pretty marginal with lots of ice so I’ve been able to actively try many of the tactics and techniques and methods that we’ve been working on these past 10 weeks. One of the biggest impacts was foot tensioning and pressure awareness. One of the tasks for my next level is one footed skiing in varied conditions with blended turns. I felt much more confident practicing this season with the ability to more precisely position pressure across and along the foot and throughout turns on one leg. In particular, being able to identify and experiment and correct ankle flex ion with complementary changes in knee, hip, spine, neck and shoulder made for many options to try to find what seems to work well for me. Working with you has raised consciousness of the chain which seems to affect almost everything. Fellow instructors were impressed by the seemingly immediate improvement that they witnessed compared to the end of last season, especially in my performance of typically challenging drills.”


- Mammoth Mountain Ski School

“I think that the program is just right for me. And quite universal as well. I have been strengthening parts of my body I had ignored in the past. And that makes a difference. Feet and legs appear to be stronger now, and more agile, which is very useful in my football as well as skiing.”
