Backcountry Avalanche Safety Guidebook



Item #: 331489157

This new edition of Avalanche Safety focuses on two basic user groups: those who wish to avoid avalanche hazard by careful route-finding, and those who deliberately seek steep slopes to ski or board. Using colour photographs, along with detailed charts, graphs and diagrams, the author clearly explains the basics of snow and avalanches, identifies avalanche terrain, promotes trip planning, describes the skills needed to travel through avalanche terrain and provides guidelines for skiing and boarding steep slopes, with an emphasis on managing risk. It also covers companion rescue.
