The towering snowcapped volcanoes of Oregon provide huge vertical and terrain for backcountry skiers. There is something magical and pure about skiing on a volcano, and with a deep snowpack, the ski season can last all year long. Part of the experience of backcountry skiing is exploration, and in that spirit this book shows you what is possible, but it’s up to you to figure out the details. Use this book to plan your next big ski adventure in Oregon, or use it as eye candy to get you through those hot, smoky summer days.

Created by Dexter Burke, and published by Alpenglow Publishing Studio, this is by far the best backcountry ski resource for Oregon. Beautiful aerial photos of Oregon’s high Cascades, with annotations for approaches, descents, landmarks, elevations, and helpful tidbits scattered throughout. From day dreaming to trip planning, this resource is a must-have for PNW skiers and snowboarders. Not part of the Beacon Guidebooks “Ski Atlas Series”, but totally awesome and very similar to our books.

This 12” x 12” saddle-stitch bound atlas includes high quality aerial photos of: Mount Mcloughlin, Mount Thielsen, Diamond Peak, Broken Top, South Sister, Middle Sister, North Sister, Mount Washington, Three Fingered Jack, Mount Jefferson, and Mount Hood.

"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."
