"No one who plays in mountain snow should leave home without having studied this book." -Rocky Mountain News

Winter recreation in the backcountry has increased steadily over the years and so has the number of deaths and injuries caused by avalanches. As search and rescue teams are increasingly strapped for funding, self-education has become a larger necessity for snow-sport enthusiasts. The new edition of Bruce Tremper's seminal book is organized according to the structure of American Avalanche Association classes and all chapters have been updated and reviewed by peer experts.

About the Author:

BRUCE TREMPER is the director of the Forest Service Utah Avalanche Center and coordinated backcountry avalanche safety preparations for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City. He is one of the nation's foremost experts on avalanches, and has appeared in news reports and documentaries produced by National Geographic, PBS, and Discovery Channel, among others.

Review:

"This new edition of Bruce Temper's seminal book, Staying Alive in Avalanche Terrrain, maintains the easy-to-understand style of its first edition, making the information accessible even for snow-sport novices, yet also technically insightful for snow safety veterans." (Cross Country Skier)

"Why buy it? With winter recreation in the backcountry steadily increasing over the years and avalanches the number one cause of death and injuries in winter, knowledge is one of your best defenses." (The Fort Collins Coloradoan)

"If you are considering a career as a snowy sports professional in North America then this book is an essential text; for others it is a useful reference point for a deeper understanding of what is both a simple and complex subject." (Roger Payne The Alpine Journal)
