Maybe it's because so many skiers are illiterate.
Now you'll know that even though I put you on "ignore", I occasionally still read your posts...DAMN.
The White Death is great, I have it in digital format, but loved it so much I gave it to others for Christmas. It happened in Glacier and a lot of the names are familiar to me. It is written by McKay Jenkins. You can get it at Amazon
A learning to ski book I read over twenty years ago was Breakthrough on Skis. It was the only ski book I've ever read that I actually got something out of. It's still in publication, updated for newer Equipment, also at Amazon
I've also enjoyed Picabo's autobiography, Nothing to Hide
