The extensive text and illustrations are technical, yet accessible and include the latest information, techniques and research on understanding and surviving avalanches.
Each year in New Zealand many avalanches occur which can injure or kill people, damage or destroy equipment and facilities and cause revenue loss.
This book describes the circumstances surrounding avalanche fatalities in New Zealand prior to 1999 with the intention of providing information to prevent future incidents. Includes photos, maps, tables and sketches.
Profits from this book are reinvested in the New Zealand Mountain Safety Council's Avalanche Programme.
