The Powder Bible – a book by Richard Ross
The northern winter has officially begun, with snow on the hills and tracks to be made. If you’re thinking about heading O.S. to the snow sometime soon and you’re hankering for some of that elusive powder in the US, Europe or Japan, can we suggest you check out the POWDER BIBLE ?
As far as finding secret powder stashes go this book is the ‘holy grail’ and guarantees success in your quest for some soft untracked powder snow.
Using insider knowledge, the PowderBible can help anyone tailor their ski or snowboarding trip to maximise the possibility of finding powder. The book states the best way to find these untracked gems with a minimum of fuss and contains a comprehensive guide to 36 hand-picked ski resorts in the USA, Europe and
Added, are links to weather guides, avalanche sites, ski forums, independent ski authorities as well as mountain resort guides, equipment tips and safety issues.
The book is written by long-term Mt Buller skier and Ski Coach, Richard Ross who says that “to a skier, powder is everything, but so many decisions about where to ski are poorly researched – many people rely on word-of-mouth or resort marketing to decide on where they are going to ski. It’s sometimes akin to the roll of the dice. I aim to lessen the risk considerably by giving the everyday skier some tools to increase their odds of making a winning decision.”
When it comes to finding powder Richard thinks that luck has nothing to do with it. He says his fail-safe formula is the only “luck” you need.
Richard is a long term supporter of isft. with connections to us through Mt Buller, MBRC and Trinity College. He has kindly offered to donate 30% of the book proceeds to isft when ordered here online or through the POWDER BIBLE website using this code.
