Kickstarter Campaign to complete production of my new book now live!

Kickstarter Campaign to complete production of my new book now live!

A a collection of photographs by Craig W. Hergert
Stories by Brian Hurlbut 
Foreward by Warren Miller.


A 12" x 12" high quality 212 page hardcover coffee table book that includes   over 150+ photos of all 16 Montana public ski areas, plus the Yellowstone Club and our dear neighbors, Sleeping Giant (Cody, WY) Jackson Hole and Grand Targhee. 

This project began began as a labor of love, and of course an excuse to get out and explore the region back in 1998. I love small towns and small town ski areas, and there is nothing quite like the mix of Montana hospitality, wide open spaces and skiing....Skiing in my mind, is one of the most freeing activities in the world, where sport, culture and passion borders continuously on the edge of spirituality. Whether visiting a small family owned mom and pop hill with a couple lifts, or immersing yourself at large and luxurious resort such as Whitefish Mountain or  Big Sky, the feeling of huge wide open country and a laid back atmosphere translates to an experience like none other. 

I've spent well over $30,000 of my personal savings traveling and shooting over the years to complete this project, and now that I am down to the final printing, I have unfortunately run out of funds. That is where you come in.... 

Help me finish this project and get it out in the world! None other than Warren Miller has graciously offered to write the foreword to the book for me, and I couldn't be more excited to finally see it all come together!
