Synopsis

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.
