On the website you state:
The 2016 edition is on sale here, and will remain so until the autumn of 2017.
Where to Ski and Snowboard is changing. After 21 years and 20 editions, the editors and publishers, Dave and Chris, have decided on a radical change of direction. There is no new edition of WTSS this year. Next year we plan to publish something completely different – watch this space.
So is this the end?
Because I’m afraid the “completely different” thing will be an app, which is certainly not a replacement by any means. The team of the german DSV Ski-Atlas tried that after their last edition in late 2011, and it has not really worked well, to say the least…
Why? Because a book is always better than apps. It doesn’t drain your battery, take your memory up, but most importantly: There are so many options for informations on ski resorts on the internet, so there is really no added value in apps over websites. You would suddenly compete with all those websites instead of having no competition on the book market.
But if you do an app, then at least make sure to include _everything_ from the book (including geographical maps, piste maps, resort index) plus the chapters that were dropped from the book in the past.
