Great read! Growing up the frozen waterfall poster of Coombs was in my local gear shop and I always thought he was so cool. Fast forward to spending time in the Tetons and learning to backcountry ski it was a treat to pick up this quick read to learn more about Doug Coombs. Definitely worth picking up a copy to learn more about an amazing skier!
