more than two decades of ski writing, ski teaching, and ski publishing by Lito Tejada-Flores

Ski Books

I'm a ski writer as well as a skier, as well as a life-long ski teacher. I love and value good ski writing. That's why, in addition to sharing my own ski books with you, it's been my pleasure to showcase well crafted books by other ski writers whom I admire. Dick Dorworth is one such skiing scribe, but now, in this 2017 pre-season, I have a new treat to share with you: Tracks in the Snow, a fabulous collection of short pieces by ski writer extraordinaire, Peter Shelton. Peter's new book constitutes a virtual autobiography of a full life on skis, richly lived, beautifully told.
