New Release: Pups on Piste – A Ski Season in Italy

BookBrushImage-2020-1-8-8-4757

In between our latest adventure and purchasing an ex-army truck for our next adventure, I have written a book about a previous adventure!

Pups on Piste – A Ski Season in Italy documents the first three month winter season that we spent in beautiful Monte Rosa, one of the ski areas of the Aosta Valley in northern Italy.

With parables from on piste and off, Pups on Piste tells of my own skiing journey – from tears on a blue run to powder hound, along with how we got a full season on the snow when we, “don’t look old enough to have given up work” – and what we did for Winter Walkies with four pups in tow.

Monte Rosa – the second highest peak in Western Europe; our home for the winter

A little-known resort tucked under the second highest peak in Western Europe, one ski magazine placed Monte Rosa in ‘The Top 5 Off Piste Destinations In The World.’

Once there, we get lost, stranded, conduct experiments on the edge of control and take a Back-Country Ski Course in which one instructor’s advice is, “Don’t miss the turn or you’ll go over a cliff.”

Join us in legendary powder, where you will learn a multitude of invaluable lessons about skiing, winter walkies, the revenge of the snow chains, surviving a Viking invasion and how to remove snow balls from the belly of a dog.
