On April 1st, 7pm, join Lowell Skoog, a renowned local mountain historian, for an intimate conversation with Malcolm Bates, author of Cascade Voices, about the rich history of the past century of Northwest ski culture.
Lowell is the author of a Fall 2021 Mountaineers Book, Written in the Snows: Across Time on Skis in the Northwest, a stirring love letter to Washington’s vibrant ski history--as well as a look at its present and future direction. Skoog shows that skiing is far more than mere sport or recreation through colorful storytelling of immigration, war, and wilderness exploration in addition to the evolution of gear and technique.
Get inspired by our own living legend Lowell Skoog and learn how you can be a part of the story, and help bring his book Written in the Snows: Across Time on Skis in the Northwest, to life. The book is in the final stages of editing and design, and will be released this fall. The event is free, but will include an opportunity to support Mountaineers Books non-profit publishing program (including this book). Donors will be recognized by name in "Written in the Snows."
