I got some galleys the other day and am headed up to Aspen today to see the real thing, which is being created by Art Burrows of Ajax Design (yep, Art the famous tele skier from days of yor). The new pub is amazing, basically a coffee table book with enough 14er ski porn to keep you amped for ten seasons. Chris emailed me and said they’re shooting for a Christmas release. That would indeed be the “hot track,” but knowing Chris Davenport I wouldn’t expect anything less! I’d stick a teaser up here but probably get in trouble. Aw shucks, if they beat me with a broken ski pole so be it, check out this sequence from one of Davenport’s amazing descents. Take my word for it, the book is stuffed with dozens more.
