Here is our brief Winter Olympic tie-in.

John Fry, former editor-in-chief of SKI, provides the definitive history of skiing in, you guessed it, The Story of Modern Skiing. His tale covers a wide range of skiing topics from the environment to the the mega-resort (not mutually exclusive, obviously). Fry also adds winning anecdotes about skiing legends.

And, he also touches on snowboarding (a significantly less cool version of skiing).

Warren Miller gives The Story of Modern Skiing a warm review. His recommendation is enough for us. It should be enough for you as well. From UPNE.
