They wrote about my local ski fields in NZ and basically hit the nail on the head with their descriptions, advice, culture, conditions and stories.Read more ›
The 384 page full colour guide covers 100 of the world's top resorts across 19 countries, including some far flung destinations like Iran, Japan and Poland in addition to the better known resorts in North America and Europe. The book also dips into the history of snowboard media, offers brief language guides and gives advice on doing a season.
Authored by three well known snowboard journalists who have laid lines on peaks that few others will ever lay eyes on, it's not only beautifully written, but illustrated with tantalising pictures that will have you packing your board bag and running for the hills.
In amongst the well laid out resort info, the "lift chat" and "rider's tales" sections give us a flavour of each location by featuring short accounts of the authors' own experiences whilst on their travels. We also get a useful and entertaining "locals do...locals don't" and an environmental rating for each resort.
The authors, Matt Barr, Chris Moran and Ewan Wallace, must be commended for producing such a high quality publication that has raised the bar of snowboarding travel literature. This high class guide will sit nicely on your coffee table, provide a valuable reference guide and enthral all who open it.
With a large format, clean layout and tantalising text and pictures, Snowboarding the World is highly recommended for any rider with a sense of adventure, a thirst for travel, and a love for lines less ordinary.
Review by - The Magazine for Snow Travellers.
Quite simply, this is the ONLY guidebook I have read that is worth your money. As well as going in depth into most of the resorts you'll have heard of - and giving you new information about them that you almost certainly WON'T know - the guide also delves deep into resorts that you may not know even exist: Iran, anybody?
I'll keep it brief, but this seriously is a snowboard guide worth buying - and at the discounted price, it's a bargain.
