Praise for all editions of Snow Sense:

If you travel in the mountains, you understand that knowledge equates to safety. Snow Sense is your source of unparalleled wisdom. It could save your life. --Conrad Anker, Professional alpine climber and author

There's a new updated Snow Sense available, and it's just as down-to-earth as the previous incarnations, but revised and updated to reflect recent research and practice. --The Avalanche Review

No other (avalanche) teachers have more credibility...Snow Sense is by far the best material available on staying alive in avalanche country. --Steve Casimiro, Powder Magazine

Here's a book you should have. I know, I know, everybody says that but this is different...Now notice I didn't say this is a book you should have on your bookshelf. This one should be in the top pocket of your pack...Snow Sense is a hands-on, explicit, clear-thinking, hard-hitting field guide...Every time I hear of another avalanche-caused death...I wish the victim had read this book. The survivors must read it. --Mark Jenkins, Backpacker Magazine
