 “Somebody had to write the ultimate book about cross country skiing, and it just happens to be Jonathan Wiesel who did it. ... He’s as concerned with the strudel after dinner and the personality of the innkeeper as he is with the direction of the trails.”            
AMI Snow News

Saint Paul Pioneer Press

“Man, does this guy know his stuff! We never realized how diverse a subject we were talking about until we started the interview with Jonathan. He had all the answers about all the facets of this extremely popular topic. This is an extraordinarily comprehensive guide. When you’re planning your next winter vacation, the guide is the next best thing to having Jonathan along for the trip. It covers everything from skiing to snowshoeing, dog sledding to ice climbing.”

“I like [this book] tremendously. It’s a detailed (and opinionated) guide to outstanding destinations across North America, from B&Bs to skiing communities, guest ranches to resorts. Author Jonathan Wiesel explored the full potential at every place he describes – not simply the skiing but the joy, beauty and romance of winter.”
Bill Koch
World Cup Champion & Olympic Silver Medalist

“This is the book I've long looked for. It’s a learned, literate, humorous, opinionated guide to the best cross-country ski resorts, centers and trail systems in North America. Looking for an area with moderate prices, night skiing and romantic ambiance that has horse-drawn sleigh rides and an airport within 50 miles? Wiesel’s book will find it for you. Don't leave home without it!”
