A new edition of a best-selling classic. Snow Sense is North America’s leading primer on how to avoid getting caught in an avalanche. Written by the experts, Snow Sense focuses on the critical terrain, snowpack, weather, and human factors that allow avalanche accidents to happen. A must-have for anyone who works or plays in avalanche country.
” 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
