Product Description

About the Author

After learning to ski in the West Highland Ski Club at Glencoe in the late eighties, Kenny Biggin grew up skiing the Back Corries of Nevis Range in Scotland and has skied there for at least part of most seasons since it first opened almost 25 years ago. Back in the day he was an instructor at Nevis Range with forays to the Alps instructing in Italy during the mid-90s. In 2007 Kenny founded the SkiMountain brand as a way to build his life around his passion for skiing. Latterly, he has been seeking out steeper and deeper slopes worldwide and has skied and toured in the backcountry of New Zealand, Canada, Norway, and of course the Alps. However, he still considers Fort William home. Kenny rarely skis a day at Nevis Range without going 'over the back' or further afield in a massive variety of conditions and reckons he has skied the Back Corries hundreds if not thousands of times.

Format: Paperback
A long awaited modern guide to backcountry skiing in Scotland!
For years the only guide available was the old and out of print Ski Mountaineering in Scotland (Scottish Mountaineering Club Guide). This book, covering just one area of Scotland but in far more detail, and with more of an 'off-piste' than 'touring' focus is a much appreciated updated guide covering the classics as well as recent developments in skiing in Scotland. The route descriptions and photos are excellent, and the grading and rating system, with useful comparisons to other routes, will really inspire and help readers in choosing backcountry routes.
Fingers crossed that this is just first in a series, and guides to the many other areas of Scotland appear in the future.

Format: Paperback
Fills the final 'gap' in Scottish winter sport guides.

A real labour of love, with super photography. Will help raise the profile of a relatively niche activity in the Highlands.
