Backcountry Books

Why buy from Backcountry Books? Well, we're skiers and snowboarders ourselves. Unlike big generic online retailers, we are just as stoked on the mountains as you are. We aim for a level of service beyond the norm because we know how awesome it is to receive a guide book before a big trip, to spend hours looking at maps searching for THAT zone. 

Check out some of our ski touring guide books and maps:

Freeride Maps

We also aim to be a responsive member of the backcountry community. Wondering which guide book to buy for a trip to the Alps? Just shoot us an email, we'll help you decide. Want to see what the inside pages of a particular guide look like? We're happy to take the time and email you a few images. Wondering how big an area a particular map covers? Just give us a shout - it's not a problem. In fact if there's anything at all just use the contact form to get in touch and we'll get back to you as soon as possible, usually within a few hours.
