DEEP The Story of Skiing and The Future of Snow

Porter Fox

Discover the fascinating 8,000-year-old history of skiing in DEEP, a gripping narrative by veteran ski writer Porter Fox. Uncover the miracle of snow and the threat of climate change, which could wipe out skiing and snowfall in the next 75 years. Follow the unlikely rise of skiing from prehistoric Norway to nobility in the Alps to modern-day freeriders on the Rocky Mountains. Through primary interviews with alpinists and scientists, Fox explains the effect of climate change on snow and the Great Melt that's coming. But it's not all doom and gloom - DEEP also provides accounts of skiers and scientists working to mitigate climate change and preserve the water cycle, hopefully saving snow and ice and ultimately, the world.
