Ultimate Skiing Adventures Reviews

"This season's most inspiring coffee-table read." (The Telegraph) "If I had to select one ski book to be my companion - to inspire, inform and fill me with a love of skiing then this would be it." (James Cove, Editor and Founder of PlanetSKI) "Whether you are a beginner or expert, Ultimate Skiing Adventures will have you itching to get back to the slopes." (Frank 'Scoop' Baldwin, Skier & Snowboarder magazine) "Any skier looking to tick off the ultimate bucket list of adventure destinations will love this book. Just a word of caution though, once opened the first-hand accounts and dreamy photos draw you into a wonderful world of snow that will be hard to resist. Prepare to travel!" (Rob Stewart, Ski Press) "Thoroughly (and quite literally) at home in the mountains, few people know the sport, the mountains, the resorts and the personalities as well as Alf Alderson, and no one else writes about it with such verve and passion. " (Tim Hughes, Features Editor, Oxford Mail and The Oxford Times) "This superbly illustrated book of 100 epic skiing experiences round the world by one of our leading skiing and surfing adventurers should whet the appetite of anyone about to clip into a pair of bindings." (Outdoor Focus, Winter 2020)
