Book Description

Dec 15 2011

RMB is pleased to present the third edition of Summits and Icefields 1: Alpine Ski Tours in the Canadian Rockies, one of our bestselling guidebooks. Researched and written by legendary alpinist Chic Scott, with the assistance of mountain guide Mark Klassen, this guidebook will continue to be the bible of ski mountaineers in the Rockies. There will be plenty of new tours in the book, particularly in newly developed areas where skiers can grab a few powder turns near the road. Information on other areas will be either greatly expanded or completely rewritten and updated. The entire book will be printed in colour, showcasing many mouthwatering ski images and destinations. Digital shaded maps prepared from satellite imagery will illustrate the routes and terrain and will allow this guidebook to set a new standard for ski guidebooks in North America.

The companion volume, Summits and Icefields 2: Alpine Ski Tours in the Columbia Mountains, will appear in autumn 2012.

About the Author

For five summers Chic worked as a mountain guide for the International School of Mountaineering in Switzerland, leading ascents of Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn and the Aiguille Verte. During the summer of 1974 he worked for two months with Clint Eastwood and Universal Studios on mountain location filming for the spy thriller The Eiger Sanction.

In 1975 Chic originated the idea of holding a Banff Mountain Film Festival. In 1978 he founded The Canadian Himalayan Foundation and in 1995 was one of the founders of the John Lauchlan Award, which assists expeditions of Canadian mountaineers and explorers.

Chic is an honorary member of the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides, the Calgary Mountain Club and The Alpine Club of Canada and is also a winner of the Banff Mountain Film Festival Summit of Excellence Award.

Over the years Chic has written hundreds of magazine articles and 10 books. Today he makes much of his income giving presentations on mountain culture and adventure.

Now a senior citizen, Chic is still very active. In 2010, at age 64, he skied with three companions from Jasper to Lake Louise along the valley route to the east of the Icefields Parkway. The trip entailed 20 nights in a tent and deep trail-breaking in remote valleys while carrying a 20 kg pack. As the famous philosopher Yogi Berra said, "It ain't over 'til it's over."
