A beautifully illustrated story tells a legendary origin of skis with fictional characters. The snow-covered alpine and spruce trees are called snow ghosts because during the winter, their trunks and branches are weighted down with snow and ice. With the wind and sun, the trees give the shape of ghosts.
Thrill with the little snow ghost Blizzard as he meets with Mother Grizzly, Mr. Wolf, and Mr. Eagle. With their help, Grandfather Olaf rescues the lost snow ghost with those things on his feet. But now, because of those things called skis, people are happily whizzing down mountains while the Rocky Mountain snow ghosts like Blizzard and Grandfather Olaf are carefully watching over them.
Pages are colorfully delightful with the artwork of Abigail Folk and photos of William Hirst.
