Ski the Whole Mt. ($124 used) Worth It?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Just looked up Delauriens (sic) book  Ski the whole Mountin on Amazon and a used copy is $124.00.  Anyone have this, can it be worth this many bucks?

 I have the book, it's excellent, but not THAT excellent!

Be patient, I remember when the Yikes Zone was more then that, then found it for a reasonable price a year later.

$24.95 list price new, got mine for a bit less . Some prices of used stuff on Amazon are just ludicrous .

Great book, but that's crazy - not for the first time, there are better prices at  http://www.bookfinder.com/

--for example Amazon.co.uk seems to have it for about $24 new

 The complete Encyclopedia of Skiing is on Amazon for a similar price
http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Encyclopedia-Skiing-3rd/dp/0966913159/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1269288833&sr=8-1

The last time I looked it up, it was available for over 1000.00, so bob must be declining in value, eh?
He does look a little dog eared

Thanks TrekChick - had never heard of this but after reading your post, and just after I offered my suggestions to another poster who was looking for things to read, I find, lo and behold, the wonder of modern technology, Bob's Encyclopedia is on sale for USD 10 only in PDF form, well, I acquired it, looks like a very handy reference, scanned a few terms, a very good reference book, so it will now sit online in my own online files as a handy reference that can be consulted anywhere  I have a computer and an internet connection.
