Never thought school would be relevant to skiing but today I was proven wrong. Iím taking a psychology class and we learned about how there is a direct correlation between mental exercises and success. As it turned out, the basketball players who visualized making free throws for 30 minutes did better as a whole than those who physically shot baskets for 30 minutes. Perhaps this study could be relevant to skiing. If camps and ramps are not your thing you could be the next Tony hawk by visualizing a trick and mentally practicing its moments over and over again until its time to prove the haters wrong.
