A great day on skis is often all we need to recover an optimistic sense that all is well in the world. At any rate in our sparkling midwinter world of snow and wind and joyous movement through space. All those hard-to-describe but ever-so-real feelings that skiers share, that bring us back to the mountains when they are covered with snow, year after year. That's what this book is all about
This is Skiing is full of the sort of ski writing that simply doesn't fit in advertising driven, formulaic ski magazines. Ski poetry for one thing, and impressionistic, intensely personal ski essays, stories and prose poems. Accompanied by stunning ski photography from around the world. No technique, but lots of soul, the soul of skiing.
