Forums Splitboard Talk Forum New Eastern Sierra Guidebook Viewing 20 posts - 1 through 20 (of 24 total) 1 2 → Author Posts August 25, 2014 at 8:26 pm #580071 bcd 232 Posts It has been five years since the first edition of “Backcountry Skiing California’s Eastern Sierra” came out, and I imagine you’ve all rode everything in that book by now. So, if you’ve been waiting for some new material, that wait is over! Almost…… Pre-order is now available, and the books are scheduled to ship early November. For every book we sell on pre-order, I am personally matching a guaranteed one inch of snow, to fall on the Eastern Sierra between November and June, of the 14/15 winter season. If we sell 100 book, I will deliver 100 inches of snow. 200 books=200 inches. 500 books? You do the math. So, it’s up to you! Order here: http://wolverinepublishing.com/backcountry-skiing-sierra-nevada Here’s the details: This one is an expansion on the first edition. It’ll cover the entire East Side, with 14 chapters: Lone Pine Independence Big Pine Bishop Pine Creek Rock Creek Mcgee Convict Mammoth June Tioga Lundy Virginia Bridgeport And over 200 descents, including things like Whitney, and most of CA’s 14’ers Lone Pine Peak Deerhorn Mountain University The Palisades South Lake Mt Mendel The Buttermilks Feather Peak White Fang Mt Ritter Red Slate The Negatives Dana Plateau Matterhorn Peak Incredible Hulk and so on….

Dave Pegg, the owner of Wolverine Publishing, has passed away. I’m still sorting out the details on things at the moment. But, as far as pre-orders are concerned, things might be on hold for a little while. I believe Wolverine was mostly a one-man operation, and Dave was it. So, if you’ve pre-ordered, please be patient. It sounds like at least some books shipped last week. I’ll relay info as I get it.” http://www.dpmclimbing.com/articles/…publisher-gone November 12, 2014 at 2:13 am #677111 bcd 232 Posts Thanks all. Yeah, there’s some bad news at the moment. But after I posted that on TGR, I got a few confirmations that books were being delivered. So I’m optimistic that they all went out. I’ll keep you posted when I know more. And, yes, I dug through my photo archives and pulled out a few hidden gems. Like bcrider with the sixpack. There’s even an appearance by Steeleman (remember that guy!?!?!?!) from that same trip. Maybe this will bring him out of hiding……. November 12, 2014 at 4:22 pm #677112 Snowvols 291 Posts I got my book yesterday. Nothing beats a quality guidebook. This is the best guidebook I have ever seen. Planning on a few camping trips to the East Side now. November 13, 2014 at 2:52 pm #677113 highanxiety 47 Posts My copy arrived this week as well. :headbang: Super stoked on it, looks great. Noticed Jaybay’s name popped up a couple times too. November 13, 2014 at 3:52 pm #677114 maxpower88 58 Posts @highanxiety wrote: Noticed Jaybay’s name popped up a couple times too. HA!!! I didn’t know they let cakespreaders in that book 😉 November 13, 2014 at 6:56 pm #677115 bcrider 4149 Posts BCD, Sorry to hear about Dave 🙁 Wishing you and his family the best. Steeleman is around. Busy being a dad I’m sure. Hoping for a reunion this year! Lets hook up!

Mt Gilbert is in there? Which one is Mt. Gilbert again? Ahh they are all Mt Gilbert – pay no attention to this move on now.
