A collection of short essays, memories, and reflections on the magic and addictive pleasures of sliding down snow-covered mountains on skis. Intensely lived and intensely told tales of a life on skis, by on of America’s most accomplished and literary ski writers, Peter Shelton. . . . . “A skier’s progress from boyhood to old-man-of-the-mountain.” . . . . “In a career spanning five decades, [Shelton] has acquired a following among readers who take sensuous pleasure in the way his sentences work.” . . . . “These essays explain to us our own gob-smacked passion for the sport, and bring vividly alive what it was to live for skiing in the last third of the 20th century.” —Seth Masia in SkiingHistory.org
