“Free Skiing - How to Adapt to the Mountain” is the book which UIAGM mountain guide Jimmy Oden wished he'd had but never found during his formative years as a ‘ski bum’. It is written from a unique position - Jimmy still remembers all the questions he used to ask himself, only now he has the knowledge and experience to provide the answers.

The purpose of this book is to convey how professionals think and act in a big mountain environment; as the book is written from a passionate skier's perspective, everything documented on its 366 pages comes down to one single aim: to help capable free skiers reach as much good skiing as possible - as safely as possible. "Free Skiing - How to Adapt to the Mountain" deals with those very particular circumstances, hazards and challenges that free skiers face in an alpine environment. Although not an instruction manual, the book is arranged like one, with checklists, procedures and diagrams; it is beautifully presented in 12 superb chapters, with as the book describes “441 illustrations and 104 photographs filled with the things that you cannot really learn from a book”.

The content is divided into topical chapters, all including explanatory illustrations and photos: mountain sense, mountain weather, snow & avalanche knowledge, avalanche hazard evaluation, skiing companion. The book also won the prestigious 'Design S Award' for outstanding design & function, and once you've opened it up and looked inside, it's easy to see why.
