winter 2014

We live in challenging times. Climate change affects us all—and affects skiers in particuar ways. Climate scientists have assured us that we are in for less predictable and more extreme weather. Planetary warming, to be sure, but also local cooling and freezing; less perciption in some regions, and more in others. In the United States, winter storms have been fierce in the East, but out West, in my beloved High Sierras, an unprecedented drought seems to have postponed the snowy winter we skiers look forward to so intensely. What to do? Think snow! And when it arrives, enjoy each day on the slopes, each run, each turn, as the gift it really is. No matter how your season started, I'm wishing you lots of powder snow before you put your skis away in late spring...

What else? I couldn't resist sharing a light-hearted re-interpretation of a classic Zen teaching that skier-photographer-artist, Burnie Arndt, sent me. And also...

A few years ago I collected my best ski writing, matched it with my wife, Linde Waidhofer's ski photos, and published This Is Skiing. The book is a beaut. It is my love letter to our sport. And you can order a hardbound copy from this site.

But I wanted more skiers to enjoy this book, so I created an eBook of This Is Skiing, in PDF format—a beautiful electronic book that you can enjoy on any computer screen, or on your iPad. It's free! So please take a look. And share this eBook with your skiing friends! I think you 'll love it..

To download a free coppy of my eBook—This Is Skiing—just click

Think snow! And thanks for visiting BreakthroughOnSkis.com!
