Summer is always a challenge. Mountain hikes and wildflowers don't quite make up for the lack of snow. Summer has its charms, but it is also a time of waiting, waiting for snow. Waiting for winter when once more we can unfold our wings and fly...
Hey, we've been here before, every year in fact. Plenty of time to think about next season. Maybe look for some new ski destinations on the internet. Scope out some cheap air tickets to the Alps. And if the wait is too long, too frustrating, maybe book a quick flight to the southern hemisphere, Chile or Argentina, New Zealand or Australia for some summer skiing. Why not? But short of such a drastic solution, reading about our favorite sport, savoring some pure and exciting ski images, re-living some good skiing stories—that will have to hold us until the snow flies again...
For myself, summer is a time to catch up, I am working on a new design for this web site. A better way to showcase and share its content. I hope to have this new version on line by early fall. In the meantime, I am leaving everything more or lsss the way it was last winter. Including my photographer-skier friend, Burnie Arndt's brillant adaptation of a classic Zen teaching (see the link above and left)
A few years ago I collected my very best ski writing, matched it with my wife, Linde Waidhofer's ski photos, and published This Is Skiing. This book is a beaut. It is my love letter to our sport. And you can order a hardbound copy from this site.
But because I wanted more skiers to enjoy this book, I created an eBook, This Is Skiing, in PDF format—a beautiful electronic book that you can enjoy on any computer screen, or on your iPad. It's free! So please take a look. And share this eBook with your skiing friends! I think you 'll love it..

Think snow! And thanks for visiting BreakthroughOnSkis.com!
I try to answer all emails personally, as soon as I get them. But if I am traveling, it may take a couple of weeks, so please be patient.
