The Essential Guide to Skiing is no rehash of the standard “how to ski” books, simply updated with newer pictures of newer equipment and clothing. Nor is it “Skiing for Dummies.” Instead, it is a comprehensive book packed with authoritative advice on every aspect of the sport. For novices, there is information on how to walk in ski boots, when and where to rent equipment, and where to attach a lift ticket. Experienced skiers can learn how to find the shortest lift lines to the best slopes, discover the best goggle lens colors for flat light, and uncover the best powder stashes even when the mountain looks skied out. Other subjects range from the financial (finding the cheapest lift tickets) to the mundane (evaluating the fiber content of a pair of ski socks) to the creative (how to take great action pictures and videos). Extensive black-and-white photographs add to the fun.
This book is about great ski trips, not great runs.

Rather than spending a lot of time on how close your skis should be to one another, this book is jammed with the kind of tips you would need 20 years to learn on your own.

Example: I don't know anyone who thinks putting on ski boots is fun in any conditions. Doing it early in the morning in slushy parking lot is a real challenge. One false step and you have wet socks. What a way to start the day! So the suggestion is to bring a folding camp stool and a scrap of carpet.
Very Good.
More of a self-help book than a training manual on how to ski, but its advice is golden. It is well spent money and time to read this (I ski patrol and still learned many things)
Loaded with tidbits to make your skiing experience better... Some of the stuff is common sense but other material in the book is useful and very worthwhile. If you are new to skiing or just finally getting into the grove of the sport, I think you will find this book interesting, useful and practical. The author gives some excellent advice. Even if you only pick up just a few things from this book, I think it is well worth the price of addmission. Happy skiing!
As advertised.
I usually don't write reviews for purchases I make. If I'm having to write a review for this one, it really means something.

I found this book very useful and informative. This book covers everything from boots and skis to vacations and lesssons. This book is almost like an Encyclopedia for anything skiing related. Skiiers of all caliber can greatly benefit from reading this book. Great read!
Like all teach you how books, there is no substitute for getting out on the hill and skiing for real or getting some instruction. This is good to read when it's 90 degrees out and you want to think of cooler days.
A great book to browse off-season. Lots of good tips on almost every aspect of skiing. I found the chapters on actual skis to be this least informative. And I would strongly suggest wearing a helmet at all times. But overall I picked of dozens of good pointers.
