Member feedback: A comprehensive manual that seems designed for pre/post course reference material rather than a field handbook. Most subjects covered very thoroughly e.g. excellent chapters are Avalanche and Weather. There are anomalies; such as self-arresting which is brushed over lightly. Overall offers comprehensive content & would be a great pre & post course resource.
Written by Tim Steward (IFMGA) with contributions to previous editions from Whitney Thurlow (IFMGA) and Pete James (NZMGA). Thanks also to input from Roy Smith (IFMGA), Andrea Bruni (IFMGA), Tai Naka (IFMGA) and Dan Phillips (NZMGA)
