GOOD BUT SLIGHTLY SMALLER THAN PREVIOUS EDITIONS,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Where to Ski and Snowboard 2012: The 1,000 Best Winter Sports Resorts in the World (Paperback)
As usual a first class book to help you plan a ski holiday. I ordered my copy before publication date so must be one of the first to receive it. I notice that the cover is slightly different to the one in your advert; of no consequence really!
The book is slightly thinner than the 2008 edition which I am replacing, that had 768 pages whereas the new edition has 712 pages.
I was particularly interested in the Italian resort of Bormio which used to have a good full description in the textin 2008 but is now reduced to a few sentences in the index in the 2012 edition.
The book is well researched and printed in a clear typeface with good maps and photographs. There are interesting articles on getting to a resort independently which is important in these days of excessive charges by some airlines for extra luggage and skis! Mention is also made of getting to European resorts by train and by car. I commend the volume to anyone planning a ski trip. Guidance on uplift machinery, snow reliability and length of queues as well as hotel and other accommodation can make a lot of diffence to skiing. Important when costs of skiing do seem to have gone up more than inflation for this coming season
