As skiers (and snowboarders), we live and die by the vagaries of climate. We spend time reading long-range forecasts, ogling radar, and planning dream trips to legendary spots, all in search of snow. Through all that, we rarely ask ourselves "What if it weren't there?" That's just one of the questions tackled by Porter Fox in DEEP: The Story of Skiing and the Future of Snow. An essential read for snow-lovers and climate-conscious folk alike, it details the origins of skiing, the sport's development, and the changing climate that's threatening our winters. By interviewing skiers, mountaineers, and climate scientists, Fox paints a picture of a problem that's far larger and more serious than the decline of a sport, but doesn't fall victim to doom-and-gloom—by acknowledging problems, confronting realities, and working towards solutions, we've got a chance to turn things around before the snow's gone for good.
