Description

Endless acres of bowls, faces, glades and chutes have drawn dedicated backcountry skiers and splitboarders to this end-of-the-road powder paradise for decades. A sense of adventure still reigns in this land of cold-smoke face shots and devoted locals. Along with the daily avalanche forecast, avalanche education and good group communication, this atlas is your tool for safe and smart route-planning and decision-making.

Author Matt Schonwald has drawn from his years of skiing and guiding experience to bring this professionally reviewed and highly functional guidebook to you. In this light weight and detailed guide you’ll find high-quality aerial photos marked with ascent and descent indicators, individual run descriptions, slope angles, aspect, Avalanche Terrain Exposure Scale ratings, parking and trailhead information and more.  Designed to go along with you on your tours and accompany the Backcountry Skiing Crystal Mountain Ski Map (coming soon!) and Ski App. With over 70 pages between the covers, you’re sure to find the right tour for your group.

"This is the kind of publication that helps you arrive cold as an out-of-towner, find the “skinners” and have at it while pounding fluffy Colorado pow and laughing at the over-priced ski lifts."

"It neatly lays out the elevations, descent lengths, aspects, trailhead directions, winter maintenance and parking info, snowmobile access, skin tracks, and exit info. That combined with helpful photos, give backcountry travelers a very good idea of what is going on."

"Sovick’s book contains established skin tracks, preferred routes, etiquette, and notes on terrain traps, gullies and avalanche paths. It also assumes all users are trained in avalanche avoidance and rescue, and includes AIARE’s “Communication Checklist,” which includes tips for facilitating teamwork and good decision-making."
