EXPERT REVIEWS OF SKI A TO Z

“An entertaining insight into the world of skiing, ideal for anyone new to the sport.”

Dan Egan, Author and Extreme Skier, U.S. Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame.

“This is an absolute gem and one of the best ski books I’ve seen. It’s perfect for families who are planning on going away on their first ski trip, as well as regular skiers, and it really is what it says it is – the A-Z of skiing. The work that has gone into this book, not just the incredible art, but the perfectly explained details of skiing is quite amazing. You will not be disappointed.” 

Pat Sharples, Head Coach,

Team GB Snowsport

Sarah Lewis OBE OLY

Global Sports Leader,

International Ski Federation 2000-2020

While the title immediately made me think this would be a kids’ book, it is not. Instead, author and illustrator Kay has created a surprisingly comprehensive guide to the basics of skiing in just 80 pages. Full of defintitions, pro-tips, and the basics all beginners need to know, it’s a reference volume for any family discovering the joy of snowsports.”
