Buy the books!
This site is still being developed, but closure of our existing e-commerce platform means that we have had to make the transition to this online shop for Where to Ski books earlier than planned.
To buy a book, hit Add to Cart below, setting the quantity first if you want more than one copy. Our standard offer gives £4 off bookshop prices; but for the rest of November 2023 we have a special offer: all three books are currently half-price. We have also produced a free Austria update document detailing all the major lift upgrades and new links created since publication. Download this update from this page.
We ship to most countries where English is widely understood (and many where it is not), but not everywhere; there's more on this aspect in the background information given below. Shipping costs, which depend on where you want delivery, will appear at the Checkout stage. You can pull out at that stage if you don't like the costs.
To learn more about a title before ordering, click on the main part of the cover image; you'll go to a page where you can access the contents page, and a typical chapter start page. To download an entire sample chapter, go to this form.
But ideally look over this background info first
We’ve found from long experience that the postal services in many parts of the world are unreliable, giving rise to countless problems; this is why we are now a bit selective about where we ship.
We do ship to most of Europe; one of the main exceptions is Russia (which for postal purposes is in Europe). We ship to the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, and to a small number of places in the middle and far east.
The checkout address entry system includes a country dropdown; if your country isn’t listed in the dropdown, we don't ship there.
For the moment, at least, we have abandoned second class post in the UK, and now use only the more reliable first class post.
For addresses outside the UK, we offer only tracked postal delivery. Note that it is in principle possible for your country of residence to apply taxes to goods arriving from abroad, although we believe this is rare in the case of books.
Orders are passed to the warehouse without delay, and with luck are despatched the next day; but the volume of orders varies widely, and at busy times orders may slip to the following day.
