RMB is pleased to present the third edition of Summits and Icefields 1: Alpine Ski Tours in the Canadian Rockies, one of our bestselling guidebooks. Researched and written by legendary alpinist Chic Scott, with the assistance of mountain guide Mark Klassen, this guidebook will continue to be the bible of ski mountaineers in the Rockies. There will be plenty of new tours in the book, particularly in newly developed areas where skiers can grab a few powder turns near the road. Information on other areas will be either greatly expanded or completely rewritten and updated. The entire book will be printed in colour, showcasing many mouthwatering ski images and destinations. Digital shaded maps prepared from satellite imagery will illustrate the routes and terrain and will allow this guidebook to set a new standard for ski guidebooks in North America.

The companion volume, Summits and Icefields 2: Alpine Ski Tours in the Columbia Mountains, is also available.

Anyone who's seen the latest version of Summits and Icefields (released the winter) knows what a great book it is and what an improvement it is over the original, which itself was the best backcountry skiing guidebook for many years (at least in Canada). The new version's pictures are inspiring, the format concise and relevant and the new maps make the latest version one you want to have with you on every tour.—

Get this guidebook if you’re a backcountry skier and live in the area or plan to visit. Heck, get the guidebook just for the sheer vicarious pleasure of reading about one of the places that is the holy grail of alpine ski touring.—Wild Snow: The Backcountry Ski Blog
