Some of the images in this book are also in the book The Stylish Life: Skiing, or the other method around. But I already had the Stylish book so it was a little disappointment that some of the content is the same.But I read The Ultimate Ski Book again and I am coming back to edit my review and say that the book is beautiful y of the top European and American resorts are reviewed with two-page color trail maps of each resort, which is really nice.And the images are really cool, and a lot of are I am revising my review to say this book is enjoyable and if you are really into skiing, and maybe wish to learn more about the top European resorts, this is a amazing book for your collection.
Amazing magazine with amazing ads for different equipment & locations to visit. Articles were well written. Lots of photos. Amazing stories about equipment and clothing as well as locations to visit for best snow. Would've liked to hear about the hotels as in how far they are from the slopes, if the charter helicopter rides could be coordinated from the hotels or if I had to do this as a seperate package. Overall though, a amazing publication.
The best part are the annual equipment reviews that are published ~September. There's generally a fair amount of advise regarding the equipment and techniques of downhill skiing, though I've learned much more from the classic books: Tag Elling's 'The All Mountain Skier', and Ron LeMaster's 'Ultimate Skiing'. The magazine stories and travel tutorials are often interesting and funny.
What was once a reputable ski magazine has now become a glossy Madison Ave type magazine related to all the other shallow content ones on the news has turned into a thinly disguised high end resort/ski equipment advertisement brochure.Gone are the indepth ski instruction articles- replaced by occasional skiing hints which appear to have been "phoned in". In the past the magazine contained well written instructional articles, some, running from problem to issue, to support the average skier(intermediate level) improve his y of these articles had individual instruction for each level i.e novice, intermediate, advanced depth Fitness/exercise articles are it's put we now have articles on the most expensive ski resorts with the clothing articles featuring $500.00 or more ski jackets is obvious that this magazine is now geared toward the affluent skier who probably goes skiing one or two times a year and chooses to go to one of the larger expensive ski resorts and dine in the most expensive restaurants T. he magazine is no longer geared toward the daily skier who logs 30 or more days skiing, mostly day trips, and has to watch the cost. It is most certainly not geared towards the skiing family on a budget.I subscribe only to keep the annual equipment review problem ,, to see the fresh skis and far as theequipment ratings, since the change in the magazine, I take these ratings with a huge grain of salt.. The rest of the problems go directly to the recycling bin..As a check,count the number of pages of advertising compared to the number of actual articles .
This book is just great! Like her first book, Ski City Soups, Après Ski showcases recipes from ski locations across the country, and ranks them from easiest (green slopes) to more difficult (black diamonds) using ski symbols. It is such a clever concept, and cooks of any skill level can use this book! And the photography is fabulous enough for it to be a coffee table book.
I bought this book in Breckenridge, Colorado at the Spice Merchant. It is unbelievable and 100% ski culture cooking. The recipes come from restaurants that are located on different ski resorts. The recipes are signature "appetizer" and "side dishes" of those restaurants; including a few cocktail recipes here and there. Amazing pictures and the recipes are simple to follow. I recommend making the mac and cheese with hatches chilies. It is a small work but well worth it...don't chinch on the cheeses, trust me! Highly recommend.
This application is great! Definitely the best lightweight ski tracking app. This application would be excellent if you could set a "base area" to automatically pause when you entered it, and resume when you left it. Create it customizable in shape and size, maybe with multiple selections. At my home mountain, all 180 vertical feet of it, the application doesn't recognize each run as a run so I have to count the number of peaks in the altitude graph. A run counter that will automatically adjust to the mountain size would be amazing and the algorithm shouldn't be too hard to design. Lastly, I would like to have an option to have a persistent notification when it's paused, reminding me to resume tracking when I head back out. That method I'm more likely to remember to resume it after lunch, or save it when I head out. With a couple added features, hopefully the application will stay lightweight and be better all around worth 5 stars!
I gave this only one star due to GPS problems, but since then I fixed the issue and managed to actually try the program. It does what it's meant to, and can also tell apart between lifts and descent. The only feature I have been gravely missing is the ability to save a certain zone as offline maps. Otherwise it is a 5-star. Modernize on problem: The GPS issue turned out to be a firmware similar issue, and after a new flash of the OS, it worked fine. Old Review: GPS can never search enough satellites. Says 16/21 satellites at most, even at the top of a mountain in the Alps... Considering that 3 satellites are enough to triangulate the position within 30 meters, 16 should be more than enough. Absolute garbage.
