Pocket Adventures the Alps
This book is a great general guide to all the skiing areas in the Alps. Better than any other book I looked at. One bone to pick: It doesn't include Verbier, Switzerland. The authors had to cut the book off somewhere, I guess. The book is paperback and small -- easy to carry with you while you travel. Since I was unfamiliar with the Alps, I referred to it often on my ski trip to Switzerland and France. It gave the perfect amount of background info to each location and then had good, concise sections re: where to eat, where to party and where to stay. Bravo to the authors for obviously putting effort into creating an easy-to-read, concise and informative resource. -- Rahmit Olsen (Amazon reviewer). "An avid skier and hiker, the author has explored terrain ranging from Switzerland's Matterhorn to South Korea's Muju Mountain. The author of more than 800 travel features, hotel reviews and destination guides, she shares her vast knowledge of ski and adventure travel in the Alps and Europe." --Ingram Advance Magazine. "As portable as they are helpful and heavily illustrated as well, the volumes in this series remain very reliable in making certain that adventure is a major ingredient of your trip." --Booklist.
