30 Years in a White Haze- the new book by ski legend Dan Egan and Eric Wilbur will be available from March
I am lucky to be pre-reading the 30 Years in a White Haze- the new book of my friend and ski legend Dan Egan and Eric Wilbur. It tells the story of Dan and his worldwide adventures and how the Extreme Skiing evolved in its heyday. It will be available in the United Kingdom from March and you can preorder now). Obviously it will be available in the US and in Continental Europe as well! So go ahead and check on Amazon.com now.
Thirty Years in a White Haze chronicles the adventures, successes and losses of Dan. It also documents the evolution of Extreme Skiing and the growth of the outdoor media industry.
The book unravels history as Egan ties together his own family’s story, the ever-present mortality of his namesake. Also his grandfather’s involvement in desegregating Boston’s (his home town) school. And the rise of extreme skiing and technology into the new millennium. An ode to a life filled with curiosity, growth, freedom and its costs. Dan Egan and Eric Wilbur’s new book promises a heavy dose of humour, suspense, thrill, and documentary, as thirty years of haze dissipates to clarity.

I had the chance to read ‘The Skier’s Gift Book that’s Sweeping the Globe (Sort of)- Second Edition by Dan Cody. This is a candid recount of what you have to take into account when starting or getting better at skiing.
We skiers are all a special bunch. If we love the sport, we can’t wait till the next time we are up the mountain with our skis on, waiting to do those turns. But to get to know what you are doing, there are lots of things that have to happen first. Like how to dress, how to get comfortable ski boots and good skis, how to get to the resort in one piece, how to carry your equipment without looking like a broken helicopter, how not to finish skiing with the village idiot and so on.
