By Louis W. Dawson

Wild Snow details 54 classic ski and snowboard descents in ranges across North America, from California's Sierra's to New Hampshire's Whites. More than just a guidebook, the book is a tribute to backcountry skiing and snowboarding, including a 7,000-year history of glisse alpinism. Of backcountry skiing, author Louis Dawson writes, "When a ski of snowboard descent caps a fine climb, the alpinist becomes a joyful, even sublime, part of that wild landscape. No human game is more elegant and joyful than glisse alpinism."
