” I know, I know, everybody says that but this is different…Now notice I didn’t say this is a book you should have on your bookshelf. This one should be in the top packet of your pack…Snow Sense is a hands-on, explicit, clear-thinking, hard-hitting field guide…Every time I hear of another avalanche-caused death…I wish the victim had read this book. The survivors must read it.” –Mark Jenkins, Backpacker Magazine
