Ski Atlas of the World
by Arnie Wilson
- HARD COVER
- 300 PAGES
With its 400 color photographs and 93 maps of resorts and ski routes, popular, exclusive and out-of-the-way, this guide is as beautiful as it is informative. The focus is on 80 of the best places to ski in Europe and North America, including such world-famous resorts as Val d'Isere, Zermatt, Aspen, and Whistler, and such up-and-coming ski areas as Bulgaria, Romania, and Slovakia. Each profile details terrain characteristics, resort character and tone, history of the facilities, and more. Double-page maps appear throughout the book, beginning with a large-scale map of the world's mountain ranges and followed by maps showing the resorts' locations relative to each other. Rounding out the Atlas is an overview of skiing in Australasia, Japan, and South America. In 1994 the author skied every day for a year, visiting 240 resorts in thirteen countries and entering the Guinness Book of World Records.
