Helvetic Backcountry – New “Ski & Snowboard Tourenatlas Schweiz”

screen568x568This new great ski and snow boarding touring book (in German) covering most Swiss ski touring regions is highly recommended. The “Atlas” including 30(!) maps can be bought for just CHF 100.- in bookstores or online (www.helveticbackcountry.ch). Considering all the information (400 peaks, 1000 routes) and the many maps (1:35’000) this is a steal. The young authors Markus von Glasenapp and Nicolas Fojtu have done a phantastic job putting together well known tours, but also less traveled routes and (steep) descents. It is just amazing! Pictures are great too.

The book is a “must have” for any serious ski tourer!

The book is in German, but English readers probably also find it useful.
