This is a selected guidebook of ski tours in the European Alps. We have chosen classic ski tours at a variety of grades spread through the Alps, with some well known venues and others not on the radar of British ski tourers. The 22 places selected have enough routes to keep you busy for a week or more's ski touring and will allow you to get to know the area well enough to inspire you to make up your own tours. Stunning photos, useful planning maps, and accurate descriptions make this the most up to date, English language guidebook to ski touring in the Alps available. In order to be as up to date as possible, the routes have been contributed by UIAGM/IFMGA guides who know the area well and have toured there recently.
