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 quirky creatures who live in a remote mountain village―we witness Bruce “the Spruce” Crampon ski jumping off the roof of Lone Wolf Cabin, the ski patrol dealing with a reckless speed demon on the Goose Bump Glacier mogul run, old “Snow-Blind” Jefferson ice fishing out on Frostbite Fish Pond, and many more. Pull on your long johns and mittens for a jam-packed day on Slush Mountain!

"It’s a clear, crisp morning on Slush Mountain. There’s not a cloud in the sky and the newly-fallen snow shines in the sunlight. At Wanderlust Lodge, the temperature is four below, and the skiing conditions are second to none.
The cross-country trails are already crawling with rosy-cheeked skiers. With backpacks full of oranges and chocolate chip cookies, they’re slogging up the mountainside at full speed.
Others prefer to go off-trail, away from the crowds and long line-ups. The insufferable show-off Bruce “the Spruce” Crampon is ski-jumping off a cabin roof with such gusto that his ski pants flap wildly in the wind."
