New book Ski A to Z is a fun, practical, fully illustrated introduction to Alpine skiing, intended to answer all the questions new skiers may have and to help prepare them for mountain experiences.
Written and illustrated by debut author Kimberley Kay and published by Europe’s leading sports publisher, Meyer & Meyer Sport, Ski A to Z provides information, tips and insights to help novice skiers of all ages grasp the sport.
Many people may be put off beginning the sport as they simply haven’t a clue where to start, what questions to ask – or even the confidence to ask those questions. Ski A to Z removes that barrier, giving all newbies access to the information they need to venture into the sport and opens the door to experiencing the wonder of skiing.
The accompanying illustrations are intended to resonate with avid skiers as well as new, demonstrating the exhilaration and joy of skiing.
In full colour and hardback format, Ski A to Z is available to pre-order now. With publication scheduled for the beginning of December 2021, it makes an ideal Christmas gift, well in time for the ski season.
About The Author
Since starting skiing aged five Kimberley has over forty years of ski experience including racing, teaching, and heli-skiing, as well as ski holiday promotion during a 20 year career in travel PR.
Kimberley Kay said,
“It is hoped that Ski A to Z will make the sport increasingly accessible to a more diverse audience by helping people to feel that they have adequate information to give skiing a try.”
Liz Evans of Meyer & Meyer Sport, said,
“As Ski A to Z is written and illustrated in the classic style of A – Z books the format gives readers the option to read cover to cover, or to dip into the book for definitions or to answer queries. Kim’s passion for skiing, and enthusiasm for sharing helpful insights shines through her writing and illustrations. We hope that Ski A to Z will give people the inspiration and confidence to try the sport.”
“People may start skiing through friends and relatives who ski, or they may try skiing with school or at a local ski facility (artificial or snow); but they may not have any of these connections – the book is like an all knowing ski friend and shares things it can take years to learn otherwise. There is information from artificial slopes, through to powder skiing, explanation of how boots and bindings work through to advice on what to wear and safety tips.
I’m delighted that Meyer & Meyer Sport are publishing the book, allowing it to reach and empower more people to experience the joy of skiing and mountain environments.”
Pat Sharples, Head Coach, Team GB Snowsport:
“This is an absolute gem and one of the best ski books I’ve seen. It’s perfect for families who are planning on going away on their first ski trip, as well as regular skiers, and it really is what it says it is – the A-Z of skiing. The work that has gone into this book, not just the incredible art, but the perfectly explained details of skiing is quite amazing. You will not be disappointed.”
Ski A to Z is available from Waterstones and all good book shops.
