I watched a sweet but old "Joe McClintock" video on tape months ago and would love to get my hands on something similar! Can anyone help?

I think the old/cheesy Bob LaPoint VHS is good as well. It contains some good side-by-side comparisons. The funny thing is, however, whenever Bob messes up he blames the difficulty of the run. Whenever anyone else messes up, he is quick to jump all over it. I wish I had a nickel for every time they say, "split radius turn".:)

Not familiar with the McClintock video. There are several slalom instructional videos out there. Gordon Rathbun has several of differing skill levels. Good basic and intermediate level. Drew Ross has an OK one for intermediate and advanced level. And a video called West Coast Slalom is for advanced level and is quite radical by some folks standards but worth checking out.

I have Gordon Rathbun's 12 slalom drills. It was my first one. Helped a fair amount when I was learning to ski the course. He spends the time with the fundamentals of skiing while free skiing, so not much video of course skiing. He does throw some pro footage in at the end though, including some great footage of Jason Paredes and some young kid by the name of Chris Parrish :)
I also got Andy Mapple's video, I've watched most of it, that's pretty good too.

I think I just saw almost all of those at Bart's.

Overtons.com sells both. My Rathbun one is actually a VHS tape, it's from a number of years back.
