Looking for a guide into some of the lesser known (in Europe at least) US and Canadian resorts I picked this up and it has been right on the money. Covers less commercial areas in almost as much detail as the bigger ones beloved with the tour operators, so you'll be able to find a hidden gem in here with no queues and brilliant snow and terrain. Also includes decent information about snowboarding too; much better than many European Ski "and Snowboard" guides.

Being a US book there is a slight downside in that it doesn't tell you how to get to the back end of beyond from the UK, but that's pretty much the only negative point.

This is an excellent book to give you ideas and pointers on where to go, but the book is slightly dated.

good for non-family travelers 1 Feb. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
the good thing about this guide is that it focuses more on travel and resorts for those of us who dont need "the carnival cruise line" of snowboarding trips, i.e. its it includes tons of info for those of us without kids to consider. you can do this travel by yourself, with friends, on a budget or in high style, this rough guide gives you the choice, and there is a lot to choose from.

Boarding Bible! 23 Jan. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I mean, what can I say? Snowboarding is a Religion, and this book really is the Bible. I don't think there is a stone left unturned with this one. Anyone interested in Snowboarding who lives in the USA and doesn't own this book may as well give in now, and order it. The research and quality of information on hand here is perfect for anyone who boards. Great bedside reading too!

Sound information 19 Mar. 2011
By Andrew - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very good book if you are like me, and have never skied the US or canada, and are really lost in the maze of options you have. This book has lot of good information about each resort, mountain stats, location, places to stay and eat not that they list all of them, but it gives you a good idea of whats there. The only thing I would take with a grain of salt is the average snow fall stats, if they claim there average is 500 inch's I would say its more like 350/400.
