Some of the resorts and ski areas represented, including Vail and Beaver Creek of course, in the book are Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (Wyoming), Whistler Blackcomb (British Columbia), Whiteface Mountain (New York), Heavenly Mountain Resort (California), Stowe Mountain Resort (Vermont) and Park City Mountain Resort (Utah).

Iverson likes to call herself a “ski mom” to three boys with big appetites. She combined her passion for food, skiing, travel and the ski town lifestyle to create a useful souvenir for skiers and food lovers alike.

She and her business partner, Jen Baker, like to use their Ski Town Life brand to curate many of the aspects they love about the mountain lifestyle. Many of the flavor profiles in the cookbook originate from fresh and locally-sourced ingredients, which are very close to the hearts of those who contributed to the book. The cookbook celebrates regional ingredients and unique recipes from specific areas.

The book is now on sale at local retailers, including the Bookworm of Edwards, Hovey & Harrison, Gorsuch, the Colorado Snowsports Museum and more. For more information about Iverson and the line of Ski Town Life books, visit skitownlife.com.
