There's often a choice of guide books for any given area and it's sometimes difficult to know which guide to go for. Sometimes to get the best overview and info on an area it's worth buying more than one guide or a combination of guide books and maps. That's where Backcountry Books Packages come in.
We've bundled together the best guide books and maps for the most popular backcountry skiing locations. To give added value for money we've also added a discount of 10% or more over the usual price if the items were purchased individually.
