This guide is on equal par with its brother in the Footprint series "SURFING EUROPE"

In my eyes this is the best snow guide to ever hit our shelves!

If you don't own a copy go buy one now! You wont regret it!

If you one of those winter daydreamers who are forever wondering where to be at the right time and to score conditions you can only dream of. Well this is the book for you. It gives you the inside first hand experience that is invaluable to a traveller's itinerary plan. You know what location will suit you before you start booking.

If you are one of those people who insist on knowing what to expect before you get to your destination. Then this guide will open your eyes to all the secrets before you have left the comfort of your front room.

If you have no idea where you want to spend your winter holiday and you wanted to shred some of the most beautiful mountain ranges this planet has to offer, you would use this book as your reference to research all of your avenues! From one end of the earth to the other, they have it covered!

From my own personal experience:

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.

I bought this for my snowboard instructing son who loves to chase the snow. He finds it an inspiration and loves dipping in to it. As expected there are other destinations not included but these are in developing countries and often off piste. When he isn't chasing the snow he's often found dipping into this.

Snowboarding the World is a beautifully produced guide book that will inspire its readers, as much as it will inform them.

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.

I have never come across such a well educated review of snowboarding on this plane. If you need to know anything then this is your reference. Quick and easy to find chapters, well marked and layed out grafically, lead you to the information you need in a jiffy. The writing is well written and balanced, with a good nose for any level of rider. No matter what your purpose, if you're snowboarding this year you'll need this book! 10/10

I've been snowboarding for 12 years (full winter seasons) in European resorts and this is the first book to talk truthfully about the places I know and love very much, and its the only book out there that makes me want to go snowboarding to new places (I didn't know had mountains).

Great pics. Great Layout. Great Info. Everyplace I've boarded in this book the critique was right on. Easy to read and packed w/ all the info that matters. What else can you ask for? Free lift tickets - but that might be asking for too much.

Normally, I can't stand snowboard guides - they're poorly written, badly researched and quite often little more than somebody's good idea for a series of free holidays. I ordered this book to do some research for the magazine I work for and when it came through, I got down to flicking through and three hours later I had to take a breather.

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.
