New Ski Book Now Available As Families Prepare For The Half-Term Holidays

New book Ski A to Z is a ‘gem’ of a resource for skiers, the ski curious, and those helping youngsters to access the sport.

With many skiers unable to ski in the mountains for the past two winters there’s a buzz around skiing this season. Interest in winter sports is also currently being fuelled by the excitement and exhilaration of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics. Ski A to Z is an illustrated introduction to skiing which aims to demystify the sport with information, advice, illustrations and helpful tips; an ideal way to refresh knowledge of all aspects of skiing. The book is intended to answer the questions new skiers may have and to help prepare them for mountain experiences, whilst demonstrating the fun to be had on the slopes.

“Like an all-knowing ski friend”, is how the debut author and illustrator of Ski A to Z, Kimberley Kay, describes the book. The book is available to buy now and is being published by Europe’s leading sports publisher, Meyer & Meyer Sport.

Kimberley Kay said,

“Easter falling later this year means many families who ski will be using the school holidays to travel the slopes, potentially skiing for the first time in two years. Ski A to Z is a great resource for all to get back up to speed, or for those skiing for the first time the book gives access to the information to support them as they venture into the sport, and opens the door to experiencing the wonder of skiing.
School ski trips are back up and running and so Ski A to Z can give parents and youngsters valuable insight and information to help them to prepare for their trip. Knowing what to expect will help to boost confidence and enjoyment of skiing.”

Liz Evans of Meyer & Meyer Sport, said,

“As Ski A to Z is written and illustrated in the classic style of A – Z books the format gives readers the option to read cover to cover, or to dip into the book for definitions or to answer queries. Kim’s passion for skiing, and enthusiasm for sharing helpful insights shines through her writing and illustrations. We hope that Ski A to Z will give people the inspiration and confidence to try the sport.”

Presently in Beijing for the Winter Olympics, Pat Sharples, Head Coach, Team GB Snowsport, and father of two children, said,

“This is an absolute gem and one of the best ski books I’ve seen. It’s perfect for families who are planning on going away on their first ski trip, as well as regular skiers, and it really is what it says it is – the A-Z of skiing. The work that has gone into this book, not just the incredible art, but the perfectly explained details of skiing is quite amazing. You will not be disappointed.”

The accompanying illustrations are intended to resonate with avid skiers as well as new, demonstrating the exhilaration and joy of skiing. In full colour and hardback format, Ski A to Z is available to buy now through any good book store or online retailer. Further information and on the Meyer & Meyer website.
