WILD SNOW

Throughout the world, to the chagrin of downhill ski resorts, a revolution has been taking place. Skiers and snowboarders alike have been giving up lift access in order to experience the freedom and beauty of untracked wilderness. Wild Snow: A Historical Guide to North American Ski Mountaineering shows how to do it.   

This excellently researched book covering the surprisingly rich history of ski mountaineering doubles as a detailed guide to 54 sought-after mountain descents throughout the continent from New Hampshire's Mount Washington to Alaska's Mount McKinley. It is heavily illustrated with 214 historical, inspirational and route photographs.    The route selection is a hit list intended for all levels of telemarkers, snowboarders, or alpine skiers. It will make both beginners and experts alike anxious to grab their boards and hit the slopes.
