For almost twenty years Chic Scott’s guidebooks have been helping ski mountaineers find some of the best backcountry skiing on the planet. Summits and Icefields 2 continues the tradition and invites international outdoor enthusiasts into this spectacular alpine paradise.
Researched and written by legendary alpinist Chic Scott, with the assistance of certified mountain guide Mark Klassen, this guidebook – along with its companion volume Summits & Icefields 1: Alpine Ski Tours in the Canadian Rockies (RMB, 2011) – will continue to be the bibles for ski mountaineers looking to experience the winter grandeur of western Canada’s mountain ranges.
This updated third edition features a variety of renowned tours, along with the ever-popular sections on Rogers Pass and on the Bugaboos to Rogers Pass Traverse. With stunning full-colour photos throughout and featuring digitally shaded maps prepared from satellite imagery, this remarkable guide continues to set the standard for ski guidebooks in North America.
