Hi Klaus,
What could I say? Your new DVD, Wooooow !!! Absolutely loved it. As with your "Blue To Black Diamond", I've viewed your new "Blue to Powder" several times. There were many "Ah... Ha..." moments. I'm really glad I ordered the "Blue To Black Diamond" first. Great progression of the basic fundamentals of skiing more efficiently. I definitely recommend owning both to anyone who really wants to seriously improve his/her ability in skiing. You showed the possibilities if done right... Now, I just have to make that happen.

I've been meaning to mention it before that your collaboration with GONTLATH is really a great combination of Skiing and Music... inspired to ski better, even when sitting in my livingroom.

Furthermore, your DVD explained clearly the reasons and the logic behind my "Ah... Ha..." moments. Providing several different camera angles were really beneficial. I must say, it was really funny, but quite painful to watch your "Carpet" demonstration and you made your point painfully clear... Thank you for your great sense of humor sprinkled through out your DVD. By the way, great narration on "Camera Credits" and great laughs in the "Black Chapter"... :)
Thank you.

Thanks you for your excellent DVD - your instruction has been the most important element in becoming a skier with better fundamentals. Whenever I get tired or run into trouble, those fundamentals are like a mantra that puts me back on track.

I ordered the first DVD about 1 month ago but it was until yesterday that I gave it a shot. I'm extremely satisfied with the tricks and tips I learned watching the DVD several times (to make sure I did not miss a thing) and I drastically improved my performance. I love the "face the danger" tip which I kept remembering every time I felt I was driving on the back seat.
I wish your new DVD would have come earlier so I could have bought both of them at the same time :)
Great job Klaus!

Hi Klaus: Just ordered your new DVD Blue to Powder - I've had your Blue to Black Diamond for a few years now and my skiing has improved tremendously and everything is coming together. I am still learning and have been experimenting in powder. This new DVD will be perfect for where I am at. Looking so forward to receiving it.

First, I must thank you again for your DVD. As I mentioned earlier, I've viewed it many times (before and after) in preparation for my Ski trip last week to Crested Butte, CO. I'm finally back home safely. That's always a good thing. Just wanted to give you an update. It was wonderful skiing with all your advice and I've improved a lot. As I skied down each run and made each turn, I was reminded of all your great instruction (talking to myself in my head...) - "Face The Danger", "Up/Fwd And Come Down On Your Outside", "Keep Upper Body Calm & Separate", "Find a Rhythm"...

I felt as if you were skiing beside me giving me a private lesson in my own head as I tackled each run.
Even with a bit of difficulties in my new boots on a second day (a long story...! ), I felt my technics improved each day in coming down Double Blues and Black runs. I tried to picture the images in your DVD as I came down each run. As I maneuver each turn, there were some things I realized which made my turns much easier. It's too bad I'll have to wait another year... I'm really looking forward to my next ski trip to improve and have more fluidity in my skiing technic. It would be great to actually see how I ski... !

Once again, thank you. I feel as if you are my private Ski Instructor even if we never met in person.
Looking forward to more of your great work in the near future and I hope to stay in touch.

With Great Appreciation,

Thank you Klaus, the DVD arrived a couple of days ago. You explain everything so clearly whilst keeping it simple, and the
interactive aspect of the DVD works really well. It must be so hard to demonstrate skiing the wrong way, and it makes so much sense when one can see what the wrong way looks like.It will be invaluable. Many thanks, Nick

The DVD is excellent and very helpful. It takes the common problems of skiers and solves them with many explanations. Additionally, it has cards to remember the exercises on the mountain. The transaction was also very good and safe and the dvd arrived very soon. Thank you !

Amazing DVD. It covers important fundamentals every skier should master. Once learned gives you more control and joy. DVD highlight 4 main focus points - once in your mind skiing will be much safer and well balanced in just a few days!

Hope in the future powder skiing lesson will be added. Safety issues would be also very helpful - for example most common reasons / mistakes people do to get injured (beyond skiing techniques), how to fall to minimize damage etc..

I have been skiing for 12 years but there was still something not quite right with my skiing, something missing… until I watched ‘Sofa Ski School’. It sounds absurd - how can you correct and improve your skiing, sitting in your living room?

From the moment I started playing the DVD, it all started to make sense. Klaus Mair takes you up the slopes, lets you choose what you need to improve on, explains how you should be skiing and then gives you a practical demonstration. He also offers drills and tips which he explains in a clear, easy to understand format.

The DVD is brilliant! It covers balance, how and when to use your outside ski, perfect turns, carving and skiing the steeps, plus useful drills. The best thing is, Klaus Mair is with you all the way. You can stop him, freeze him, rewind him and always keep watching his technique. There was so much to learn and although it sounds crazy, standing in front of the screen mimicking some of his movements and angles, it was the best course of ski lessons I have ever had!

Armed with the complimentary pocket sized training cards that came with the DVD, I couldn’t wait to get out onto the snow and put the Klaus Mair instruction into practice. It worked!

I have been to many ski schools, (groups and individual lessons), read numerous ski books and magazines, so the idea of watching the ‘Sofa Ski School’ DVD by Klaus Mair had not in fact been high on my options. It should however, have been my first! With the knowledge I have gained, I would certainly recommend this DVD to all my friends and colleagues and to anyone who wants to ski with style and confidence.

Hi Klaus, your DVD is amazing. You have transformed the way I think about skiing. I cannot wait to get back to my local mountain to practice again. Thank you so much!


I would very much appreciate it, if you would take the time to give me your feedback. It is always great to hear if the transfer from the sofa to the slope worked and where we could improve. Thank you!
