An au­thor, pho­tog­ra­pher, en­ter­tainer and ski bum, Jimmy Pet­ter­son has been ad­dicted to travel, ad­ven­ture and ski­ing since child­hood. He has skied in more than 600 ski re­sorts in 74 coun­tries, the most re­cent of which was Safed Dara in Ta­jik­istan. “In the 65 years that I have been ski­ing,” ex­plains Jimmy, “I have seen the sport grow to the multi-bil­lion dol­lar mega-in­dus­try it is to­day. I em­brace the progress of the in­dus­try and the ac­cess it has given me to a myr­iad of moun­tains and slopes that were unattain­able by lift a gen­er­a­tion ear­lier.” He is cur­rently work­ing on the sec­ond of his two-vol­ume work ‘Ski­ing Around the World’.
