Reviews

"In Search of Powder by Jeremy Evans is funny, irreverent, hedonistic, saucy, insightful, and ski-obsessed. Much like the ski bums detailed within." Rob Story, editor at large of Powder and Skiing magazines "As with being poor, the problem with ski bumming is it takes up most of your time... Fortunately, Jeremy Evans has taken the time to write the book, long needed, that ski bumming has always deserved." Wayne Sheldrake, author of Instant Karma: The Heart and Soul of a Ski Bum "At times tragic and enlightening, In Search of Powder is a must-read for anyone who cherishes the ideal of finding freedom in the mountains." Matt Hansen, senior editor of Powder magazine
