Summits & Icefields 1 Alpine Ski Tours in the Canadian Rockies is a backcountry skiing guide book written by Chic Scott and Mark Klassen. The companion volume, Summits and Icefields 2: Alpine Ski Tours in the Columbia Mountains is also available.
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.
