Thanks to Dad!
With Father’s Day coming up here are some snowsport themed gift suggestions to show your appreciation for your ski loving dad, stepdad, uncle and grandpa.
Return the favour of the help with skiing from ‘dad’ whether it be for sorting out ski kit, ski teaching, carrying, driving, guiding, picking up the children and/or helping navigate.
Ski Prints – Order ‘pappy’ ski themed art prints to remind him of great times on the slopes. A range of great quality prints are available on a print on demand basis in the UK, see the all the art prints options at Inspire by Kim shop.
New book Ski A to Z will help the father figure in your life to maximise his enjoyment of skiing with tips and info that will be new, even to him!
Ski A to Z is a fun illustrated introduction to skiing suitable for all ages.

Signed Ski A to Z – If you’re in the UK then for a limited time you can order a signed copy of Ski A to Z with a bespoke message to your dad. Email email@example.com to order. Don’t delay, to have the book in time for Father’s Day.
Here’s a picture with legendary ski coach John Shedden at a recent book signing. I was fortunate to be coached by John as a youngster skiing at Ski Rossendale.
Ski Fabrics – If you are crafty or keen to sew you could make a bespoke gift for your ‘pop’. Choose from 18 bright, cheery ski themed designs printed on a fabric of your choice.
Gift ideas of what your could make are: pyjamas, a fleecy neckwarmer, a Hawaiian style shirt, a stretchy goggle protector cover, a cushion for his favourite chair, a bow or necktie. The possibilities are endless. See all the designs and order at my Spoonflower shop here.
‘White Haze’ – For a great summer read get a copy of Dan Egan and Eric Wilbur’s book 30 Years In A White Haze. A rollercoaster story of Dan’s life in the context of an exciting time in the evolution of skiing.
I created 22 illustrations for the book. You can order it here.
Thanks Dad! This feels like a fitting time to give a shout out to my Dad for all his help with skiing over the past 40+ years. Help which made our skiing and this work possible.
Here’s a pic a took when we skied in Val Thorens in March 2022.
Have a great time celebrating your ski ‘dad’. Happy skiing!
