The Inferno race was started by British skiers and this book inevitably tells the story from a British and Kandahar Ski Club viewpoint.  It is, however, dedicated to the people of Mürren, who took over the race, made it into the great event that it is now and have welcomed generations of visitors with warmth and friendship to share the joys of their glorious mountains.

The Author: Andrew Morgan was British Champion at Langlauf Skiing in 1956 and 1957 and was the first person to ski for Great Britain in three Winter Olympic Games (1956, 1960 and 1964).  He later turned from Nordic to Alpine skiing and was the top Kandahar and British finisher in the 1973 Inferno race.  Between 1991 and 2004 he was successively Treasurer, Chairman and President of the Kandahar Ski Club.
