Summary
Avalanches, the "snowy torrents" that haunt North America's mountains, put skiers, snowboarders and mountaineers increasingly in harm's way. The authors, leading authorities in the field, explain both the scientific reasons and social impact of avalanches in North America. In this book they answer many questions, including how to recognize avalanche terrain and how to evaluate conditions that lead to stable or unstable snow
