“ introduce skiers safely to the joys of all-mountain skiing”

The Four Words™

I just finished reviewing my first “Tough Love” video and it was fantastic! Some of the things you have been pointing out to me became crystal clear when I was able to see myself in slow motion accompanied by your narrative and highlights. It has made my time working on these things on my own so much more productive.

You continue to help me make strides in my skiing I never thought possible!

What is Tough Love?


Tough Love is a new Clendenin Method (CM) membership program.

Clendenin Ski Method is for Everyone


John’s , private Gold Plans, and Ski Simulator have an international reputation for developing solid technique for skiers of all levels.


In Clendenin Camps, each small group starts on groomed snow with the Keys to the Kingdom™.


The ‘Keys’ are basic exercises creating muscle memory and confidence in the fundamentals for great skiing. With a simple, yet strong, technical foundation, campers then proceed at their own pace, advancing in terrain only when they chose.


Why The Four Words™


Hi John,
This is just a note to thank you for bringing your camp to Steamboat this season. The Clendenin Method revolutionized both my actual ski-ing as well as the way I think about technique, and for the first time I feel I have the tools to take me out of the intermediate rut I've been in for these many years. Since taking the camp I am no longer exhausted at the end of the day and can even venture into terrain I've never dared previously, and with NO anxiety. Most importantly, I know your efforts during the camp will have extended my ski life significantly, and you can't put a price on that .I'm looking forward to taking another camp in the future especially if with more practice I can become more competent.

With grateful appreciation for your expertise,diligence and patience I remain sincerely yours,
Burt Cohen
