Unusual cross between a guidebook and a travelogue, well illustrated with photos, maps and diagrams. It covers an enormous journey on skis from Austria via Switzerland to the French Mediterranean coast undertaken by a group of friends in fortnightly periods over five years.

Very entertaining, funny and informative - it contains a wealth of useful information for the ski mountaineer, and not just on the route taken. Vignette titles include Keep it Light (a list of kit to take), Hut Madness (or how to avoid it when snowbound), The White Peril (about avalanche danger) and Things that Go Beep in the White (avalanche transceivers).

With a foreword by Alan Blackshaw and guest pieces by Peter Cliff, Bob Barton and others.

A real work of art.

By Peter Seamen.
