A worthy addition to any coffee table or bookshelf, the "50 Classic Ski Descents of North America" is a stunning visual presentation of the best ski lines this continent has to offer. Authored by celebrated ski mountaineers Art Burrows, Penn Newhard, and Chris Davenport, 'The 50' includes photographs and descriptions of each line, as well as quotes and contributions from many other celebrated mountaineers and skiers. The lines included herein span the entire continent, from New Hampshire's Mt. Washington to the South Face of Mt. Superior here in our Wasatch backyard, and each one is more spectacular than the last. With some of its lines having seen only a handful of descents, this book truly represents the cutting edge of ski mountaineering and offers us what the authors call "a snapshot of ski mountaineering in 2010". Breathtaking imagery and intimate stories from the pioneers of steep skiing will inspire you to get out and ski some of these lines yourself. The "50 Classic Ski Descents of North America" represents the best steep skiing our continent has to offer and will keep you dreaming of soft snow, steep couloirs, and remote peaks for years to come. Your coffee table will thank you!
