From the slopes of Switzerland to the towering Toblerone of the Matterhorn, there's not a set of snaps that'll get you more psyched for snow season.

Just in the nick of time for snowploughs and parallel turns, our crafty lensman has put together this cool book of shots taken on the most astounding alpine elevations of Europe, and boy are they beautiful. To the pistes!
