USA and Canada (Ski Snowboard America Canada: Top Winter Resorts in USA Canada): 8 of 8 people found the following review helpful. Choice of TwoBy R. Ivan RossI was looking for a good ski guide and after much research I narrowed my choice down to two: this one and The Great Skiing Snowboarding Guide 2007. After having purchased and used both guides I can recommend both. But if you are only buying one, then your choice should be around WHERE you are planning to ski.This guide has no information on resorts outside North America (obviously), but it does provide richer information and insights than the Great guide. It provides better insights on food and accommodation as well as some views on the best runs - which I found to be very helpful and accurate. It doesn't have the glossy trail maps - although these days they can be found on-line for most resorts.The Great guide has reviews of all the major resorts in North America and Europe (although it has very little on other countries such as NZ, Chile, Japan etc). A bonus is glossy colour trail maps of all the resorts they cover in detail. It also has lots of ad's and details for travel agents, hotels and the like if you are looking for that information.In Summary: if you are "going global" or want the glossy trail maps - go with the Great guide. If you are sticking to North America then I found Leocha's to be more insightful. [Review repeated under Great Guide]0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Wonderful aidBy Fernando Del CorsoIf you live outside North America (or even not...), and want to select a ski destiny, you'll save a lot of time and money reading this guide. Just like his brother "Ski Europe", it's very precise and useful. Using his informations, I've been at Whistler, Grand Targhee and Jackson Hole, and I think I did the wright choices.Fernando Del CorsoAmparo, SP, Brazil Leocha's Ski Snowboard America (19th Edition) is a complete guidebook that provides all the information to make intelligent choices and the phone and fax numbers to make reservations and plans. It takes no advertising, has no ax to grind, and is written by Leocha together with an international team of prize-winning ski and snowboard journalists.The writers let skiers and snowboarders know whether the resort is a cluster of condominiums clinging to a steep slope or a traditional mountain village exuding old-world atmosphere and whether they should pack a sequined gown or simply bluejeans for the nightlife. They also give a no-nonsense, accurate, and dependable rating of the ski terrain.Ski Snowboard America includes expanded up-to-date coverage of more than 100 resorts in the U.S. and Canada. Readers will learn about cross-country trails surrounding the resorts as well as details about current prices for lift tickets and ski school programs, complete children and day care programs, plus lodging, dining and nightlife. Simply more important details than any other guide. About the AuthorCharlie lives in New England and has skied virtually every major North American and European resort. He is a black-diamond skier, but a double-diamond apres-skier with great energy and dancing ability. He knows which resorts have the best wine lists and the best bacon-and-eggs breakfasts. He is seen regularly on MSNBC and PBS as a travel expert.
