On the mountain, even the best-laid plans can be ruined by the weather. For skiers choosing a resort can be a lottery, with enormous variations from place to place. This book shows how a basic understanding of meteorology combined with knowledge of the local climate can help you to predict what conditions will be like, and provides a wealth of climatic information about the world's most popular resorts.

Topics featured include understanding the interaction of snow, sun and shade, a look at the climates of the world's major mountain ranges, how to work out which resort to visit when, safety and comfort and is packed with easy-to follow charts, tables and graphs.
