Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Ski Coffee Table Books

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Summer is here, and I need something to keep the excitement going. I was wondering if anyone had a recommendation for a good coffee table book - beautiful images of skiing/snowboarding? In particular anything to do with touring, or skiing in weird and wonderful places...

Couple of examples of the type of thing I'm after:

Below Zero: Adventures Out in the Cold

No Words For The Way Down

Consider making your own book. I'm not very creative but just did so with one of those online DIY operations and it came out pretty good. I'll do it again, and I'll probably take a few more interesting photos as a result.

Very on trend at the moment with Cody's webseries, but 50 classic ski descent in north America is a good shout for a coffee table book...

The Hagenmuller books are also great for something closer to home:

Sounds weird - is it just a guide to Snowbird or some new agey instruction method book or what? Mind you I'm probably a bit biased as I find whenever I'm come across Jackson Hogen (youtube, ski jorno ,realskiers) he seems to be someone who believes his own hype a bit too much.

Thanks all - a few good ideas in there. I do make my own, but I'm caught up to where I'm at for the moment!

My wife liked "Mountains" by Tim Hall well enough to buy it for me. A really thoughtful gesture. You might like it, though here's a secret: I don't. Nothing in there I couldn't have shot and I'm nobody. Don't tell herself!

That's the standard wannabe photographer response to any excellent shot: "I could have shot that". The whole, entire and total point is precisely that you didn't.

In your zest to criticize, you typed but failed to absorb my last three words. Take a look at the book first, then pop off. Lots of fine shots, but plenty of nuthin', and some out of focus. I'm trying to help someone, what are you up to?
