“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.”
