/ Scottish Offpiste Guidebook: Nevis Range and Ben Nevis
I saw it last night and it looks really good and full of ideas for excursions.
Get it here: http://www.skimountain.co.uk/
thanks, being looking for something like this for a while!
any one know of any scotland ski mountaineering books in the pipeline? or any current ones that I have missed?
The obvious predecessor is the SMC ski mountaineering guide.
I think it probably is the first of its type. The SMC one is about ski touring, this is about descents.
My brother has put a bunch of stuff on line useful for an edinburgh based skiier.
there are rumours of an SMC updated book but it could be a while
thanks for the various guide book recommendations, prices start at about 60 quid though! hey. i guess that's cheap compared to buying all the ski gear itself!!
that's a quality site, but am looking more at getting into touring and ski mountaineering. there's a few good UKC articles but a guide book would be great. hopefully the rumours of a new SMC one are accurate!
I just got my copy, what a fantastic book, finally a proper off piste guide to the classics and less frequented lines to inspire :) A labour of love, Kenny has brilliantly presented his wealth of local knowledge with lots of nice photos, useful info on difficulty, and helpful references to similar routes for planning future outings. I can't wait to go boarding, bring on the powder!
Yep, and because he's managed to communicate the serious with humour and without Ego, it's really hard to put down. And it smells nice too, fresh of the press. :P
