Confessions of a Ski Bum has come full circle in this book covering The Bow Valley from Banff to Castle Junction. This professionally printed 5.5" by 8.5" guidebook is a completely rewritten and expanded 3rd edition of the book that started "confessions". It covers popular areas such as Sunshine Backcountry and Egypt Lake but also some less known gems like Massive Mountain, Copper Bowl and Rockbound Lake. The book includes hundreds of pictures, a custom made map and enough skiing to keep most skiers busy for the next decade.
Guest writers include Kevin Hjertaas, Andrew Wexler, Ruari Macfarlane and Kai Seifert covering some the gnarly lines found in this area, including Cascade East Face, Slabatha, Bourgeau South Face and The Cleaver.
