The Essential Guide to Skiing is no rehash of the standard "how to ski" books, simply updated with newer pictures of newer equipment and clothing. It is a comprehensive book packed with authoritative advice on every aspect of the sport. For novices, there is information on how to walk in ski boots, when and where to rent equipment, and where to attach a lift ticket. Experienced skiers can learn how to find the shortest lift lines to the best slopes, discover the best goggle lens colours for flat light, and uncover the best powder stashes even when the mountain looks skied out. Extensive black-and-white photographs add to the fun.LeMaster, Ron is the author of 'Essential Guide To Skiing 201 Things Every Skier Must Know', published 2005 under ISBN 9780974625416 and ISBN 0974625418.
