Staying Alive in Avalanche Terrain

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Staying Alive in Avalanche Terrain by Bruce Temper seems to be the easily digestible and most authoritative all things avalanche.

Quick question for those that have the book - does the hard copy version translate well into Kindle or do images\tables etc fail? I primarily use a paperlight kindle.

@RichClark, the tables and graphics are a bit hard to read. It's still readable, but it's also the kind of book you want to flip back and forth in which IMO doesn't work so well on kindle. Tbh I wish I'd bought the hard copy version (not that I've seen it but I presume it is much clearer).

New edition is out in September. Not sure how many changes will be made, but maybe worth waiting.

@mgrolf, You're probably right, I've had few books now that don't translate well to kindle due to graphics of tables.

@boarder2020, Thanks, good to know, I'm in no rush.

Agreed, But 'powderguide' reads even better as it uses and explains very well the 3x3 (werner munter?! sp) method and provides simple ways of working out where you can and cant go in AVI level 1,2,3, etc
