Fifty Places to Ski and Snowboard Before You Die: Downhill Experts Share the World's Greatest Destinations Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fifty Places to Ski and Snowboard Before You Die — the 10th book in the popular Fifty Places series — takes readers to some of the world's most inspiring skiing/snowboarding destinations: the Chugach Mountains (Alaska); Aspen, Crested Butte, and Steamboat Springs (Colorado); Tuckerman Ravine (New Hampshire); Rusutsu (Japan); Chamonix (France); Portillo (Chile); and Whistler Blackcomb (British Columbia). Based on interviews with leading experts, the book chronicles the rich history of these sports and the people who have mastered them, including Tommy Moe, Jonny Moseley, Billy Kidd, and Greg Harms. Above all, Santella provides readers with the gorgeous scenery, the glamorous ambiance, and the always thrilling experience of visiting mountains from the Alps to the Rockies, whether its après-ski in Cortina or helicopter rides into virgin Alaskan powder.

Review:

Review:

“For powderhounds, Fifty Places to Ski and Snowboard Before You Die by Chris Santella looks at snow sports destinations around the world.” Associated Press
