50 Classic Ski Descents of NA

This book looks amazing, exactly like they say, ” a visual and inspirational” book. I don’t imagine it is anything like a guide book but more a coffee table book to stare and and dream through. I know that the few lines I helped them with are mouth watering; I can only imagine what the whole book is like.  Definitely a book worth having. I can’t wait to get my copy.

The book is a large-format compilation of iconic and aesthetic ski descents from Alaska to Mount Washington. Created by ski mountaineers Chris Davenport, Art Burrows and Penn Newhard, Fifty Classic Ski Descents taps into the local knowledge of contributors such as Andrew McLean, Glen Plake, Lowell Skoog, Chic Scott and Ptor Spricenieks with first person descriptions
of their favorite ski descents and insightful perspectives on ski mountaineering past, present and future. The book features 208 pages of gorgeous action and mountain images from many of North America’s top photographers. Whether you are planning an expedition to Baffin Island’s Polar Star Couloir or heading out for dawn patrol on Mount Superior, Fifty Classic Ski Descents is a visual and inspirational feast of ski mountaineering in North America.
