Review:

In keeping with the Unofficial Guide philosophy, this book is written to serve the skier as the authors deliver the honest goods on more than 100 mountains and ski resorts. Want to find the best-formed moguls, make the first tracks in secret caches of powder, locate the best runs for novices, or reserve the perfect place to warm up at the end of the day?

Scattered with useful tips like "Polishing Parallel," "Stormy-Day Strategies," and "Sierra Cement," The Unofficial Guide to Skiing in the West is sure to become a well-worn reference for skiers of all abilities. --Kathryn True
