This small handbook of ski technique was published by the Kosciusko Alpine Club in 1936. It was prepared by Bob Ward and Arthur Stone with the help of Ernst Skardarasy. Skardarasy was from Austria and arrived at the Kosciusko Chalet for the 1935 season as a ski instructor. The handbook was a great success and was later used in Lebanon during the Second World War to train allied ski troops.
