5-0 out of 5 stars The Story of an Anti-Hero
This is an excellent book and very well written.It is the story of an anti-heroine who is easy to admire, but very difficult to like.Mychildren disliked Street's arrogance, her disdain for training and thenegative attitude that robbed her of the complete success that could havefollowed her natural courage and abilities.It is nevertheless a greatexample to show young women how to believe in themselves, to persevere inthe face of setbacks, and the importance of courage. The author did anexcellent job of portraying how very far Street could have gone if she hadaccompanied her courage with judgement, and her confidence with kindness. It was particularly inspiring to my daughters.

5-0 out of 5 stars We now ski, for the first time!
After reading this inspiring book, we have found courage to shred the slopes ourselves.The author obviously has a true love of skiing himself, and we think he is way overdue to write a companion piece on Hillary Lind,and to check out the wild slopes of Alaska.We look forward to readingfuture books from this outstanding children's author!Kudos from Juneau!

5-0 out of 5 stars Interesting, inspiring children's book.
Picabo Street is a very easy and entertaining book to read even for adults. Any child should find it interesting and inspiring. It challenges chidren to have a dream and work hard to achieve it. Rhoda Carlstedt ... Read more

Editorial Review

The title pretty well says it all. Covering 500 ski resorts and five continents, this guide offers all the essential statistics like slope heights, lift types, accommodations, directions, quality and challenge of skiing, and atmosphere. If you love to ski, why wade past all the chapters on museums, ruins and city hotels to find the three pages devoted to the slopes, when you can get a book devoted solely to your chosen interest? For beginner to advanced, the honest evaluations are accurate and very useful. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Most Useful Ski Guide I've Ever Found!!
This is the third edition of Leocha's ski guide that I've bought. It tells me everything I might think of to ask about each resort. My wife and I rely upon this guide to help make our decisions on where to ski in the Alps before each trip. His mountain and skiing descriptions are right on for all classes of skiers. We've used his recommendations in choosing accomodations and restaurants and haven't been disappointed even once. The very best feature is that it is written so well that we've tried resorts (Arosa, Wengen) that we never considered before and found them to be wonderful.

5-0 out of 5 stars A very solid skiing guide
Ski Europe was a great book for my winter stay in europe.The thing i liked most about it was that it was the only book i needed.It offered all the skiing info i needed for each resort (even a scection in each resort on snowboarding!), but it didn't stop there.Its an all around guide with info on the night life, hotels, and restaurants.it gave concice information about all the aspects of a skiing vacation, which made my off the slope hours much more productive.i strongly recomend this book for any skier or snowboarder, any level.4-0 out of 5 stars Good Resource
I live in Munich and use this book often as a reference.It contains very accurate information on lodging, prices, and qualities of the resorts. Very accurately summarizes the differences in the ski experience between the different countries.Read more

Editorial Review

This is an ideal introduction to skiing, especially for beginners whoindeed "know absolutely nothing" or feel a little timid about taking those firstslippery steps on the slopes. With illustrations and amusing anecdotes, this informative overview should put anynovice at ease. Skiing, after all, is about having fun in the snow. Chapters include instruction on equipment(and how to get fitted correctly), general information on ski areas, how to read trail maps, mountainetiquette, and how to fall "politely" when gravity has its inevitable way. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars good chapter on maintenance; not much on repair
Technicals: about 140 pages, about 60 of them about maintenance (tuning) of skis, 20 pages on boot fit and maintenance, 15 pages on bindings, and about 5 on poles and goggles. Impression: the section on ski tuning and repair is very good, extensively illustrated and well explained. The tools and materials required for each operation are explained in great detail, and it seems to me (to the best of my limited knowledge of ski maintenance) that they did not change much since the book was published. The section on bindings is very generic and out-of-date. It gives some ideas what tools are used to install or move bindings, but the level of presentation is not even close to the level of discussion of ski tuning. Since bindings were so different 15 years ago, there is nothing about adjusting binding settings in this book that can be used. The section on boots is even more useless. Thus, if you are looking for a book on how to maintain and repair the bottom of your skis, you have found one; if you are looking for a manual how to deal with bindings or boots, keep on looking. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading if you Plan a Eurpean Ski Holiday
This is a wonderful resource with loads of candid opinions on what's great and not so great in the Alps.It is an overview and does not go into tremendous detail on any one resort, but if you are trying to pick from the overwhelming range of choices, this book will definitely help.Be aware, the book is written from a decidedly British point of view so it places much value on some criteria that American skiers may not value quite as highly (i.e. whether on-mountain dining is of a high enough quality).Also, don't rely on the section covering US resorts for anything other than a humerous glimpse at how the Brits size up places like Vail and Lake Tahoe (both criticized for "lack of non-skiing activities").There are no photos and the mountain maps give only the broadest idea of the mountains and terrain offer, but the individual writeups are worth their weight in gold.

1-0 out of 5 stars Use the Web
A nice collection of information but for what I was looking for the web had as much information on what was where and how much it cost.This book is not worth as much as others becuase it lacks the reader input and real experience of going and being there.Most info can be picked up from travel guides and brochures.

5-0 out of 5 stars best way to select a resort
by far the best way to review and select resorts for your purpose. very easy to use, accurate and INDEPENDANT.Read more
