Ski Europe takes skiers step by step through planning the winter vacation of their dreams in the Alps in Austria, Italy, Switzerland or France as well as major resorts in Spain and Andorra.Just like here in the United States or Canada, every European resort has its quirks and specialties, notes Leocha. Seasoned skiers know that some resorts are better for singles, others better for families. Some offer cozy chalets, others feature modern hotels right on the slopes. And while one resort may be heaven for beginning skiers it may be boring for the expert.Ski Europe organizes all the necessary information to make intelligent choices and provides the phone numbers to make reservations and plans. Over more than a decade Ski Europe has become known for its no-holds-barred, brutally honest reports on reality at ski resorts. Ski Europe takes no advertising, has no ax to grind, and, like Ski America and Canada, is written by Leocha together with an international team of prize-winning ski and snowboard journalists.

Fifty More Places to Play Golf Before You Die is the sixth of Chris Santella’s popular “Fifty Places” books (more than 250,000 copies in print), and the first to return to golf—the series’ most popular subject. In this new book Santella interviews 50 luminaries in the golf world about their favorite courses and experiences. Experts range from seasoned touring professionals (Amy Alcott, Fred Funk) to journalists and photographers (James Dodson, Brian Morgan) to golf course architects (Robert von Hagge, Bob Harrison) to travel specialists (Gordon Dalgleish, Mike Lardner). Old Country favorites like Royal Dornoch and Machrihanish in Scotland are featured, but so are venues far off the linksters’ beaten path, like Nirwana, Bali, where the course runs beside rice paddies in the shadow of ancient temples, and China’s Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, where players tee off at 10,000 feet, at the base of the Himalayas. More than 40 spectacular photos capture the allure of these unforgettable golf destinations.
