Synopses & Reviews
This skierís ultimate guidebook to the North Shore describes 35 groomed trail systems from Duluth-Superior to Grand Marais and the Gunflint Trail. Learn about hidden gems, well-known state parks, plus challenging trails, family trails and more.
Skiing the North Shore is just the kind of guide I like - it's got lots of detailed maps and useful how-to information. I've skied many of the trails Andrew Slade has included in this book, and his descriptions are right on. They'll be especially useful for people who don't know much about the trails and are trying to decide which ones to pick. It's hard, since there are so many beautiful trails! This guide definitely is worth the money. Gauper Beth
