As a skier, climber, writer, and photographer, Lowell Skoog has been a keen observer of Northwest mountaineering since the 1970s. His latest book, Written in the Snows: Across Time on Skis in the Pacific Northwest, is a visually rich history of the past century of Northwest ski culture. From stirring and colorful stories of wilderness exploration to the evolution of gear and technique, the book traces the development of skiing in Washington from the late 1800s to the present. While weaving his own impressions and experiences into the larger history, Skoog shows that skiing is far more than mere sport or recreation.
