Slush Mountain is a funny, loving, and irreverent tribute to winter cabin and ski culture, from hot chocolate and snowmen to daredevil show-offs and silly fashion choices. The grand illustrations follow a day in the life of the various odd creatures who live in a quirky remote mountain village—we witness Bruce "the Spruce" Crampon skiing off a cabin roof, the ski patrol monitoring the slopes, old "Snow-Blind" Jefferson ice fishing, a snowmobile gang meeting up at the slope-side grill, and many more. Slush Mountain will appeal to anyone who has had skis on—whether they liked it or not!
