Monty Atwater was the father of American avalanche science. Returning from WWII, he joined the US Forest Service and established the country's first avalanche research center at Alta, Utah.
Atwater and the newly-founded Snow Rangers set about developing modern methods of avalanche control by applying military techniques used to knock avalanches onto the heads of enemy soldiers in the Alps.
This book chronicles that exciting time and includes basic avalanche awareness information, a bibliography of old avalanche titles and great old photos of Little Cottonwood Canyon with no ski tracks in the backcountry.
