Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Knowledgeable author gives the reader enough mouth-watering ideas for ski trips to keep you happy for years; the reader provides the backcountry know-how, navigation skills and bravado to pull it off. Don't expect connect-the-dots style guiding, do buy the appropriate maps and go enjoy the excellent terrain. A healthy balance of a guidebook.
