I must admit that at first I was a bit skeptical about the Skier's Edge, especially concerning my wife. She only got into skiing because both our daughters and I love it so much. Very tentative on the snow, she was always the last one down the hill. After two months on our Skier's Edge, she's skiing the fall line with much better rhythm and timing, and with a lot more confidence and skill. It's like someone flipped a switch and bing-she got it. This of course, has made our trips more fun for her, and for all of us. Thanks.
