Format: Paperback
This handbook is a gem. Being a longtime boarder, I decided to make a point to increase my awareness of terrain and route selection in the backcountry and get more familliar with avies. This book is helping me accomplish that goal.
Info is straight forward, has practice examples to test your knowledge on when to ride and when to walk away from certain conditions, lots of pics to help explain terrain features and in depth "how to's" on testing snow strength, as well as detailed instructions on correct probing technique.
Added bonus: Craig Kelly helped contribute to the info in this book, and hence there are many pictures of him throughout. Much love to our fallen hero.
Worth $8.00? Oh heck yeah. Small price to pay to save the life of your friends and your own.
