Memoirs of A Geriatric Ski Bum


This lighthearted memoir, refl ecting the author’s 39 years of skiing, is meant to entertain, educate, and above all, elicit the spirit of staying young. His learning experiences are related with humor, insight, and deeply felt observations. Not primarily a book of instruction, the techniques he has learned and passed on to others are clearly described to help the senior skier. Notables in the world of skiing vividly described include Jean-Claude Killy, Alberto Tomba, Ingemar Stenmark and Pepi Gramshammer. Adventure, history, joy and tragedy are intertwined in narratives concerning such diverse individuals as Albert Einstein, Sonny Bono and Michael Kennedy. Descriptions of many of the slopes and runs in the 152 areas Hirsch has skied include tales of the sites and sounds of the Winter Olympics at world famous resorts. Triumphant adventures are woven into stories of celestial sightings, off-piste skullduggery, and confessions of some horrendous, even life-threatening mistakes, frequently providing additional romantic, fascinating and exhilarating experiences.
