Skier's Guide to the Biggest Skiing in America-Big Sky Names

22.50

The Biggest Skiing in America just got bigger! The addition of 20 new runs on the mountain since the second edition in 2013 - 80 since the first edition in 2010 - and the completion of the consolidation of the area as one resort - Big Sky - demanded a new edition. Once again, the author has used his 40 years of experience on the mountain to describe all the runs and their best lines, suggest days on the slopes depending on the skier's ability, and discusses big mountain skiing. In addition to the alpine skiing at Big Sky, the groomed cross country trails at Lone Mountain Ranch and the nearby back country with 25 new additions since the first edition are also included. This is an indispensable guide for anyone not familiar with this great ski area.

Dr. Jeff Strickler started skiing at age five and the passion has continued. He raced in high school and college on the 250" hills of his home state of Minnesota, but learned big mountain skiing on family vacations in Aspen and Sun Valley. A year as an exchange student to Austria in 1960 was followed by a three month sojourn in 1969 just skiing the Alps. After a residency in pediatrics at Stanford University, and a bit of military duty in Alaska, he established a practice in Helena, MT in 1975 and has skied Big Sky ever since. Dr. Jeff and his wife, Karen, have owned several condos in the area, but bought their Meadow Village home in 1993. They moved to Big Sky full time upon his retirement in 2005. Tall, dressed in black, and seldom slow, he can be seen on the slopes or cross country trails most every day of the season.
