Before and Beyond the Lifts: Sketches of Backcountry Skiing

Backcountry skiing—skiing without mechanical access via ski lifts—is enjoying a new popularity made possible by the ready availability of lightweight, sophisticated alpine touring equipment. Many skiers attracted to this modern iteration of an ancient activity may be unaware of its long history. Only since the 1930s has backcountry skiing diverged significantly from the history of skiing itself. Before the ski lift, all skiing was backcountry skiing, powered by human energy alone.

Come along on an adventure into the depths of a northern winter with Anders Morley, winner of
the 2021 National Outdoor Book Award for travel writing, as he presents This Land of Snow, the
story of his four-month journey through the wilds of northwestern Canada on cross-country skis.
More than just a tale of adventure, This Land of Snow is a meditation on the coldest season and
on the approach of mid-life, which Booklist's Brenda Barrera has called "a captivating memoir"
and "an eloquent ode to the harsh beauty of winter." Morley will discuss and share anecdotes
from his journey, read from his book, and show photographs from along the way.

 


Anders Morley grew up in Amherst and began skiing at age five. After earning a master's
degree from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, he settled in Italy where he worked as a
translator and English teacher, and explored the Alps in his free time. He contributes regularly
to New Hampshire magazine and his work has appeared in a variety of other publications including The Globe and Mail, Northern Woodlands magazine, Maisonneuve magazine, and The Aurorean. Morley lives in northern New Hampshire.

A Randolph Public Library Presentation sponsored by the Friends of the Randolph Public Library.

 

 

These materials were made possible through funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the New Hampshire State Library.
