Dawson, Louis W. Wild Snow: A Historical Guide to North American Ski Mountaineering. Golden: The American Alpine Club Press. 1997. First Edition
"Lou Dawson values nothing more than a stimulating ski descent from a hard-earned summit. Knowledge of his forefathers in the growing sport of ski mountaineering is one of his intellectual passions. The combination makes the Coloradan the perfect author for a Historical Guide to North American Skiing. His enthusiasm for the routes, the turning, and the stories he relates are infectious. I found it difficult to finish a chapter without my mind wandering to plans of how and when I could orchestrate a visit to the runs he outlines." excerpt from Tyson Bradley's review in the 1998 American Alpine Club Journal
