While the Sierra Nevada has long been known to climbers and hikers as the Range of Light, for backcountry ski enthusiasts it might be better termed the Range of Corn. Home to a staggering variety of daylong tours, ski mountaineering objectives, and complex traverses, the Eastern Sierra transforms in spring into a glisse playground of peaks, passes and valleys. With so much to choose from, a visiting skier -- a local, even! -- could be forgiven for feeling overwhelmed with options. Stay calm and carry on planning your next trip with Backcountry Skiing California's Eastern Sierra. Whether you're following in the footsteps of your steep-skiing heroes on North Palisade's V-Notch Couloir and Mt. Williamson's Giant Steps or hoping to carve turns in late-season powder across Evolution Basin, the impressively comprehensive new guide brings together deep knowledge of the range with modern graphic design, frequent beta photos and thorough statistics on every tour and objective included. Start bookmarking lines for a trip to the Golden State this spring -- you may end up with more dog-eared pages than you can ski in a single visit!
