Alpine Ski Touring - Selected Ski Tours in the European Alps
Alpine Ski Touring is a very welcome new guide book to ski touring in the Alps. It is the most comprehensive English language guide book to ski touring in the Alps. The book has been put together by a number of very experienced British mountain guides and features ski tours in both well known and not so well known spots across the Alps.
There are a mixture of tours from simple day long ones, to single overnight trips, to multi day trips. All have good descriptions along with great images and maps.
This is the perfect guide book for those who plan on travelling around the Alps looking for the best conditions. It's also great for anyone with flexible plans who leave it late to decide where to head as it features a number of tours in each region spread across the entire Alpine chain.
