Stevens Pass Book. Going…Going…

Never thought I’d be complaining about signing the last 500 in a series of 2500 limited-edition books, but here I’m eating crow. Cody pulled together the funny little timelapse above, highlighting yours truly signing my last and final palette of Stevens Pass books at the warehouse. Can you say hand cramps? Big thanks to those of you who already nabbed a copy of my limited edition, self-published coffee table book in time for the holidays.

11×11 inches, 120 pages, hardback, $35. Earlier post here.

Just got word today that we’ve already plowed through close to 2000 of the edition of 2500 in the seven short weeks that they’ve been on sale. And also, just got word from Chris, the Director of Marketing at Stevens Pass that – for some cool but inexplicable reason – he’ll throw in 2 night skiing passes each for the next 50 people who buy the book.

Huh? That’s about $80 worth of lift tickets for buying a $35 book. Chris is a bad business person.

Oh well, it’s his money. So I guess that’s the deal. The next 50 people to throw down for the book will have the option of receiving two night skiing passes valid all year at Stevens Pass. Here’s how it works. If you buy the book here, and follow up by sending us an email to info at chasejarvis dot com with your name and address and “lift tickets” in the subject line, we’ll match your book sale with this email and mail you the lift passes immediately.

[Update: thanks for those out of towners who have asked to donate your tickets…SO generous. As such, we’ll be donating them to the Seattle Public Schools family support coordinators who will, in turn, find families in need and arrange for creating an opportunity to experience the outdoors free of charge… ]

Signed copies available at our micro-site here. If you’re a Seattle-ite they’re also available (unsigned) at all local area ski and snowboard shops, REI, as well as all the cool (read: non big box) retail book shops.

    I got a copy of this book when it first came out (only 7 weeks ago -wow that went by fast) and I really, really like it. Fantastic photos and a great looking book. Don’t wait thinking you’ll pick one up soon. Get it now before they’re gone. You’ll love it!

    Wow, I’ve never seen someone autograph a few hundred books that quickly.

    Glad I snagged one.

    I have noticed that rates for internet degree experts tend to be an excellent value. For example a full Bachelor’s Degree in Communication in the University of Phoenix Online consists of 60 credits with $515/credit or $30,900. Also American Intercontinental University Online provides a Bachelors of Business Administration with a whole education course feature of 180 units and a worth of $30,560. Online degree learning has made getting the college degree far less difficult because you may earn your own degree from the comfort of your dwelling place and when you finish from work. Thanks for all the tips I have learned from your blog.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. But just imagine if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this website could undeniably be one of the greatest in its field. Amazing blog!

    Thanks for making me to obtain new concepts about computer systems. I also contain the belief that one of the best ways to maintain your mobile computer in perfect condition is by using a hard plastic case, and also shell, that matches over the top of one’s computer. These kind of protective gear will be model distinct since they are made to fit perfectly over the natural outer shell. You can buy these directly from the seller, or through third party places if they are designed for your notebook computer, however don’t assume all laptop will have a spend on the market. Yet again, thanks for your guidelines.
