I just stumbled across this, haven't read it yet. But the last one I read from 2014 was quite interesting. It has lots of info about skiing in obscure countries/locations that James will love.

I frequently refer to the Kottke Report, which is US only. I receive that by e-mail, though occasionally you can find one online.

I've only skimmed through but some interesting bits even for me when it discusses countries that I'd never heard of having ski resorts.

After reading this year's report, I added a few pins to the Worldwide Ski Map Google Earth kmz file, which now totals 1,907 ski areas.

http://www.firsttracksonline.com/ski-sn ... downloads/ has the December 2015 version. I've sent admin the updated version.
