The comprehensive American guide to avalanches and how to avoid witnessing them too closely. Regarded as the most authoritative commentary on avalanche matters.
 
Winter recreation off-piste, particularly in North America and Europe, has increased steadily over the years and so has the number of deaths caused by avalanches. As search and rescue teams are increasingly strapped for funding, self-education has become a larger necessity for snow-sport enthusiasts.
 
This new edition of the seminal book on the subject is organised according to the structure of the American Avalanche Association classes and all chapters have been updated with the most recent data and techniques, and reviewed by peer experts.
 
Black and white illustrations.
 
By Bruce "to avoid avalanches, learn to think like an avalanche" Tremper (director of the Forest Service Utah Avalanche Centre).
 
Card cover, 23cm x 15cm, 351 pages.
 
Third edition 2018.
 
ISBN: 978-1-68051-138-3.
 
The skier featured in the scary cover photo survived by the way!
