With little or no skiing in the diary at the moment we’ve found solace looking over past pictures of holidays and adventures whilst pencilling in plans for when ‘this’ is all over.

Alf allows you to escape to the mountains from the comfort of your armchair. An easy read with inspirational photography on double-page spreads that awakens your skiing senses. A book you can return to again and again, perfect for all levels of skier and snowboarder, from aspiring to almost retired.
