This is not a book but a pamphlet. I thought there would be more substance but I was wrong. Nothing in this that could not be found on a resort website.

This book is great for organizing your ski trip in the U.S. or abroad. The book start out with a chapter filled with practical advice for anyone who is thinking about booking a ski trip.

The regions covered include general information about skiing in the area and various accommodation options.

I recommend this book to anyone thinking about planning a ski trip.

I'm planning the family getaway for 2014, and skiing is one of our options. Although there are plenty of websites offering amazing advice, it does tend to be biased towards packages the site itself is offering - so that's why I started looking for independent guides to ski resorts. Michelle's guide fits the bill perfectly, and doesn't just concentrate on US and Canadian resorts, as other books do. To a skiing novice such as myself, every bit of advice is gladly received, and there is plenty in here - everything from where to eat, where to stay, what to wear, who to teach you and how to book your ski trip is detailed in here.

This is a very limited guide, picking only 1 resort in a country. The hotel descriptions sound like PR from the hotel itself. Not worth buying.

This is a very slim pamphlet that just restates the basic marketing info one can easily find on each resort or hotel web site. Just 2 hotels/resort without any critique. No maps, no practical info, no value. You can get a lot more info for free online from the telegraph.co.uk Ski Resort Guide (google it) or buy their book Where to Ski and Snowboard

There is also a lot more free info to be found on TripAdvisor.com . Comments on snow-forecast.com are also quite good. Bottom line, save your money!

As a very novice skier and looking for some get away ideas for this winter season I stumbled upon this guide. Although it lists ski resorts I may not go to anytime soon only because they are outside the U.S. and require a lot more planning and preparation then time allows right now (like Austria, France, Italy, Switzerland.. which all sound really fun!) my focus was on the U.S. destinations.

Since I've only skied locally where I live, the places and descriptions where very helpful. Though the ones mentioned are not "local" they are still doable with planning (like Aspen or Jackson Hole which sounds really neat). I'm sure there must be many more and I kind of wish the author would come out with a U.S. (only) ski resort guide.

I found the tips/reminders helpful too.. some of them are obvious (gloves, hat, etc) but others were not (like swimwear! might not have thought of that one), and of course sunblock. I've seen too many friends come back with "raccoon eyes" after a ski trip.

Overall a very quick and short read, but something easy to refer back to when you're just starting your ski vacation and need some ideas on where to visit the best luxury ski resorts.

I found this book to be helpful for some basic information on skiing as well as finding a good resort. Some of the information doesn't really apply to me since I won't be going out of the US to ski any time soon, but it was good that the author went over some ski resorts in places like Australia, France, Italy, etc.

The book starts with some simple tips on skiing and finding the right resort for what you want out of a skiing trip. There are some things like equipment and safety and even tour guides...which is nice.

I would recommend this book for the avid skier.
