„Bijeg u planine“ je knjiga o počecima snowboarda u Hrvatskoj, ali to je isto tako i istinita priča o šarolikoj grupici individua koja je odlučila potražiti jedan drugačiji put. Ti inovativni klinci su okrenuli leđa gradu i svemu što on predstavlja, otisnuli se put planina, snijega i pokušali oživjeti one stare ideale poznate nam iz vremena hippy pokreta ili rock and roll revolucije šezdesetih.
