Product Description


Get this guidebook if you’re a backcountry skier and live in the area or plan to visit. Heck, get the guidebook just for the sheer vicarious pleasure of reading about one of the places that is the holy grail of alpine ski touring.―Wild Snow: The Backcountry Ski Blog


Anyone who's seen the latest version of Summits and Icefields (released the winter) knows what a great book it is and what an improvement it is over the original, which itself was the best backcountry skiing guidebook for many years (at least in Canada). The new version's pictures are inspiring, the format concise and relevant and the new maps make the latest version one you want to have with you on every tour.―
