This year's Alpine Ski Club spring lecture is "A Short Ski in the Hindu Kush" by Suzy Madge.
Follow two women on a horse & ski mountaineering odyssey in Afghanistan. With no maps or photos to guide them, they travel along the Silk Route through the Hindu Kush and Pamirs, stopping wherever a snowy mountain tickles their fancy. They discover a part of the world where no one has climbed or even seen skis, far away from the bombs and burkas of beautiful Afghanistan.
