Fifty Places to Ski and Snowboard Before You Die: &hellip by Matt Hansen

Lets start with the positives. The book is nicely produced, has some very nice photos and some of the place description are reasonably written and provide a decent sense of resort character. There are however two very serious issues with this book:
- the resort selection is crazily US centric accounting for half the entries. I appreciate this is subjective and part of the fun of this type of book is expressing a view but Vermont has 3 entries to Switzerland's 1? The mighty Cannon Mountain gets an entry but to room for the Trois Valais? The cult resort of Mad River Glen makes it but La Grave does not? I have skied extensively on both side of the Atlantic and i can only assume the author… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product!, 3 Sep 2012
My husband has never allowed me to write, as he doesn't want me touching mens pens. However when I saw this product, I decided to buy it (using my pocket money) and so far it has been fabulous! Once I had learnt to write, the feminine colour and the grip size (which was more suited to my delicate little hands) has enabled me to vent thoughts about new recipe ideas, sewing and gardening. My husband is less pleased with this product as he believes it will lead to more independence and he hates the feminine tingling sensation (along with the visions of fairies and rainbows) he gets whenever he picks it up.

This book is clearly aimed at the fairly advanced freerider/boarder. The descriptions of the pisted areas are very high level (ie they are generally of a similar length to the descripion of the "Park") and similarly the ski school recommendations are all focused on guiding rather than, for example, the best company to take a timid intermdiate up to the next level. In short if you are not a strong freerider there are much more helpful books. However, if you are then why would you need this book anyway? You will probably have been skiing countless times, been to many of the best resorts and had extensive first hand reports of most of the others.

For me interest was limited to… Read more
