The principal ski-mountaineering book in English by a Swiss academic who was outstanding among the pioneers. The author outlines a series of possible ski-routes, each accompanied by a map, for example ‘the Bernese Oberland from end to end’ and ‘across the Pennine Alps on ski by the “high level” route’. Little more than ten years have elapsed since men with a knowledge of summer mountaineering began to explore the Alps in winter. Not only are the successes, which have almost invariably attended the winter exploration of theSwiss ice-fields, full of instruction for the novice, but also the accidents and misfortunes which sad to say, ended in loss of life or limb, have conveyed useful lessons’.
