Editorial Reviews

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)
