    Bingo. Watch good skiers and imitate them. Take a few lessons. But really it is about getting out and doing it.

    Watch others from the chairlift. If you've got skiing friends ask them for some tips. Vary up what you do in both style and terrain (ex: don't just make short turns, don't just do groomers)

    Written information on how to ski better is in the eye of the reader IMO.

    Advice I'd have is to ski more and ski often. Depending on skill level throw in a lesson once in a while (with the appropriate instructor) to make sure you aren't being limited by bad habits.

    Take lessons and work on the fundamentals, ski often in all kinds of terrain and conditions

    I think no matter the ski level, the occasional lesson is important unless you have ski buddies at or above your level. Practice can reinforce bad habits you don't even know you have if you don't have someone who can occasionally observe what you are doing and give you insights.

    The appropriate instructor does get much harder to find the more skilled you get though.
