Inhaltsangabe: Geographer, adventurer, and ski mountaineer Jon Kedrowski is back: this time spending the night on the summits and showcasing great skiing on twenty of the highest Cascade Volcanoes. Join Dr. Jon as he explores the solitude and ruggedness of these giant Pacific Northwest icons. Kedrowski, an expert in the field of mountain geography, geology, weather, and climate, combines his unique skills of backcountry camping and extreme skiing on this exciting new project. With striking rare photography and expert analysis, Kedrowski takes the reader on an adventure where he spent the night on the tops of Mount Shasta, Lassen Peak, Mount Scott, Mount Thielsen, Mount Bachelor, South Sister, Mount Hood, Mount Adams, Mount Rainier, and Mount Baker. Discussions of meteorology, weather and climate, volcanism, as well as ski lines and ski potential are all included in this new book.
Über den Autor: Dr. Jon Kedrowski has authored papers on mountaineering, hiking trails, climate change, and protected area management in Colorado, Washington, and Alaska. In addition to over 400 ascents of the Colorado Fourteeners in all seasons, and Mount Rainier in Washington many times, he has climbed four of the seven continental summits (Everest, Denali, Elbrus, and Aconcagua). Chris Tomer is a meteorologist at KDVR/KWGN-TV in Denver. Chris is fully certified by both the National Weather Association and the American Meteorological Society.
