Avalanche! : A pocket guide to understanding and reducing risks from Avalanches Paperback / softback

Description

This guidebook, aimed at winter sports enthusiasts and professionals, can help you learn the skill of avalanche prediction.

The skill of avalanche prediction is both an art and a science.

Mountaineers, skiers, climbers, snowboarders, snowshoers, walkers and all who love winter and snow sports need to learn that skill.

Translated by the late Blyth Wright, the guide draws on the expertise of a wide range of professionals involved in mountain activities, as well as first-hand accounts of avalanche scenes from witnesses and survivors, to help you understand and predict avalanches, evaluate the risks and reduce the dangers.

This practical, pocket-sized guide is for use on the mountain and during planning. The guide also includes a NivoTest designed to help quantify the risks from avalanches.
