Product description

Review

'You'll never look at the white stuff under your skis the same way after getting this close to the powder and the glory of the snowflake' 'dazzling, crystalline, breathtaking ... rich and readable' --L A Times

'dazzling, crystalline, breathtaking ... rich and readable' --Star Tribune

'An unexpected treasure ... Patricia Rasmussen's amazing photographs alone would be worth the asking price but its the text that truly make this book an enjoyable read' --Daily Oakland Press

About the Author

He lives in Pasadena with his wife, Rachel Wing. They have two children.
