Shut Up and Ski

Now available in print, on Kindle and on all e-readers!

Shut Up and Ski is a fictionalized version of the real challenges that faced the US Women’s ski team in the year leading up to the 1988 Olympics from the perspective of not-so-brave rookie downhiller Olivia Sharp. This make or break year takes Olivia and her band of strong-willed yet woefully inexperienced teammates from Mt. Hood’s snowcapped cindercone, to a searing hot stadium in Utah, from icicle-filled vans to plush corporate jets, from steep chutes in the Andes to icy glaciers in Switzerland and finally to a wind-scoured trailer park outside of Calgary.

It is aimed at athletes, coaches, Olympic fans, skiers, young adults and the parents hoping to understand them. Want more? For a little history on how and why I wrote the book click here. To read a review by Brave Ski Mom Kristin Lummis click here. And you can always take a look inside on Amazon!

  1. I love the way this reads Edie. Even the 59 year old kid has goals by way of time it takes to ride a tough climb, where the heart rate is, how is the perceived effort, a lot of benchmarks can be part of a seasonal goal. You really did a nice job of laying this out for all of us.
