New ski book! "New Wave Nordic Skiing!"

Postby JeffOYB » Tue Nov 13, 2018 4:18 pm

...by me!

I just picked up the print-run from the press and shipped inventory to Amazon but I also sell direct from my OYB website. (You'll get it quicker and cheaper from me and I get twice as much proceeds. Amazon pays me less than half.)

172 pp. Lots of black'n'white pics. $23 shipped in US. (Button to add postage for non-US orders.) $8.95 full-color eBook.

Its main goal is promoting XC by encouraging skiing everywhere there’s snow. It’s about taking back winter, finding the love of snow, and learning how to stay warm and have fun with friends.

It promotes beyond the usual suspects, aiming to recruit the general public into a love of winter and gliding in the snow.

It's for everybody -- from beginners up to challenging the experts. It has a lot about culture, a why-to more than a how-to. For the full specifics it sends readers to shops and instructors.

It promotes dozens of innovations in gear that make XC easy and versatile. ...The public basically has ZERO idea about any of these things.

It promotes the “the mtbike of skis” — a setup that doesn’t rely on grooming, delivering fun anywhere there’s snow, especially on singletrack.

It promotes 6 easy tricks to keep skiing during low snow climate change — and even to ski more than usual.

I think it's the first ski book to say “ski local.” It's a personal, informal, homemade book, meant to stir things up.
