The mountains are a huge playground for many people. Unfortunately, the enjoyment sometimes comes at a price. Every year people are seriously injured or killed in avalanches. This book aims to provide the reader with solid straightforward information from professionals who spend their working lives in the mountains.
Unfortunately, there is no crystal ball that can tell us when a slope is safe or unsafe. This book aims to provide the reader with an introduction to the fundamentals of avalanche awareness.
The knowledge and understanding you will have gained from reading this book is only half the story. In the same way that you wouldn`t want to drive on a motorway after passing only your theory test, we urge you to further your knowledge by practicing avalanche avoidance under expert guidance, ideally on annual basis.
