As Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, first premier of the Soviet Union, once advocated: Do you ski? Do it without fail! Learn how and set off for the mountains-you must! In the mountains winter is wonderful! It's sheer delight, and it smells like Russia. Nowhere in the world was the sport of biathlon, a combination of cross-country skiing and rifle marks-manship, taken more seriously than in the former Soviet Union, and no other nation garnered greater success in international competition. For scholars and general readers alike, Everyone to Skis! presents a fascinating new perspective on the Soviet Union through the history of a sport closely tied to the homeland.
