From the 19th to 20th century, skiing underwent great changes as it rose in popularity—as did the advertisements and art of the sport, which have since become collectors' items Immigrant Scandinavian gold miners chasing the Gold Rush mid-19th century introduced skiing to the United States. By the turn of the 20th century, skiing had emerged from its utilitarian origins to become a fashionable sport in both Europe and North America, and a wave of new, stylish resorts emerged. By the 1930s, skiing was by far the most popular winter pastime for the rich and famous—combining adventure, fashion, and exclusivity. The graphic art of the posters advertising this burgeoning sport have become collectors' items. The Art of Skiing is a beautiful collection of the finest examples of poster art. Organized by country and resort, it uses posters from the Beekley Collection—the largest private collection of ski art in the world—to reflect the changing trends in skiing fashion and technique, and investigates the most popular resorts, their establishment, and their development.

Seasoned skiers know that some resorts are better for singles, others better for families. Some offer cozy chalets, others feature modern hotels right on the slopes. And while one resort may be heaven for beginning skiers it may be boring for the expert.Ski Europe organizes all the necessary information to make intelligent choices and provides the phone numbers to make reservations and plans. Over more than a decade Ski Europe has become known for its no-holds-barred, brutally honest reports on reality at ski resorts. Ski Europe takes no advertising, has no ax to grind, and, like Ski America and Canada, is written by Leocha together with an international team of prize-winning ski and snowboard journalists.

MONTANA: SKIING THE LAST BEST PLACE Photographs by Craig W. Hergert Stories by Brian Hurlbut Foreword by Warren Miller From big-mountain resorts to small town ski hills only open a few days a week, Montana is the last frontier for skiing in the West. It’s a place where farmers and ranchers share the slopes with snowboarders and twin-tip skiers, a place where snow lovers can still experience skiing at a mountain not yet contaminated by the sport’s increasingly commercial atmosphere. Vintage chairlifts and A-frame lodges are as much a part of Montana’s skiing landscape as high-speed quads and glitzy resorts, yet they seamlessly blend together and coexist to create a winter experience like no other: Wide-open spaces, expansive mountain vistas, dry, light powder, friendly locals and a laid-back feel. This is what skiing in Montana is like, as seen through the camera lens of award-winning photographer Craig W. Hergert in this breathtaking new volume. Compiled over many years and thousands of miles, "Montana: Skiing the Last Best Place" highlights all of the state’s seventeen ski areas in stunning photographs that brilliantly depict the lifestyle, atmosphere and charm of winter in the Treasure State. Combined with stories about each mountain, these timeless photos capture the people and places that make Montana a special place to ski, creating a one-of-a-kind book that uniquely and beautifully chronicles Montana’s skiing culture. For skiing, Montana truly is the Last Best Place, recorded here in photographs, no doubt to be treasured for years to come.
