This is really a wonderful, full-featured and practical reference book on all things skiing. It covers literally e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g from teaching you the actual skiing techniques to accessories information to lift-line etiquette to money saving strategies to get lift tickets to how to photograph skiers in action and then some.
It provides authoritative advice on every aspect of the sport. Every possible skiing technique finds itself in a short, summarized, well-written paragraph or page.
The book features lots of black and white pictures, as well as some sequenced photographs in its skiing technique section.
