REVIEWS

It's always nice to hear how great our books are but constructive criticism makes our books better.
Making Turns in Colorado’s Front Range, Volume 1: South of Interstate 70 is another great book written and published by Fritz Sperry. This book features approximately 70 backcountry or mountaineering routes for skiing and snowboarding on 39 different peaks or areas. As the book title states, all of these routes are on the Front Range, and south of Interstate-70. The layout of the book is organized and easy to follow. The book begins with a map of the area that is south of I-70, with route numbers placed near the approximate route location so that you can easily see where each route is relative to the others. The table of contents which follows is descriptive and easy to use. From there, the book is divided into sections....

Giterdun’s series of three guidebooks sticks with eastern Colorado. For now, anyway. For those of you who’ve followed my stuttered career as a writer, it’s true that at one time I was trying to produce a series of ski touring books for Colorado. I was ahead of my time on that and we didn’t sell enough books to make the project truly viable. Then I got into web publishing and paper/ink fell by the wayside like one of those trees they chop for paper pulp. With much more interest in backcountry skiing as well as the relative ease of desktop publishing, Giterdun has already exceeded where I left off and that’s nice to see....

It’s easy to get stuck. Things to eat, what you listen to, your familiar ski tours. With so many good, albeit relatively small, stashes near the Front Range, I find myself skiing in the same places, over and over. With Mark Kelly’s new book Backcountry Skiing and Ski Mountaineering in Rocky Mountain National Park, I’m going to try and suss out a few new spots in the Park. Add to Mark’s book Making Turns in the Tenmile-Mosquito Range, from the same publisher, Giterdun, and now I’ve got absolutely no reason not to get further afield this winter and spring. Packed with the same color photos and detailed route descriptions, Making Turns offers nearly 300 pages of ski descents stretching from Frisco past Leadville to the south. I guarantee there are dozens of ski lines you’ve never even considered....

We at Giterdun Publishing see community outreach as a duty. We put on avalanche awareness presentations each year at many of our local mountain shops. We look at local routes covered in our books as well as some of the mistakes that we've made. We also talk about our philosophy for getting it done safely Some events feature raffles to benefit the Colorado Avalanche Information Center. Upslope Brewing sponsors these events by providing free beer for all in attendance. Come on down to an event and lets get stoked for some awesome backcountry days.
