Alpine Circus

Bookcover Alpinecircle Michaelfinkel
For ten years -- the entirety of my 20s -- I spent much of my time roaming the world with a pair of skis, using the sport as a point of connectivity to explore many of the planet’s mountain cultures. Alpine Circus is a collection of 17 of these adventures. I skied in Iran, where women are assigned separate slopes and must wear a black skirt over their ski pants. I skied with Mongolian herdsmen; spent time with the US Marines at the Mountain Warfare Training Center; and hauled my skis to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro.
