The God of Skiing
Longtime EO editor-at-large and Elwayville columnist Peter Kray has penned the best compulsive reading you will pick up this year. This book is a novel on the outside, the story of a reckless ski-racing legend gone missing, but, in reality, it’s a romp into the depth of ski culture—touching on everything from Bill Briggs and the Tetons, to philosophizing French Canadians, to dogs, to the mystical beauty of the turn itself. $14; bit.ly/1zTxK00
