Staying Alive in Avalanche Terrain equips you with the knowledge needed to successfully negotiate the backcountry.


Expertly peer-reviewed and structured after the classes of the American Avalanche Association, the "Staying Alive In Avalanche Terrain" Book is widely-regarded as the most authoritative commentary on avalanche safety. Decreased funding for search-and-rescue teams, coupled with an increased number of avalanche-related deaths due to the recent boom in backcountry skiing popularity, makes self-education more important than ever before. Written by Bruce Tremper, the director of the Forest Service Utah Avalanche Center, this book makes it easy for snowmobilers, snowboarders, skiers, and climbers to learn all of the most up-to-date and crucial avalanche safety skills. While this book is an excellent tool, it does not replace the need for taking an avalanche safety class.

Ensure your backcountry travels begin with safety by refreshing your avalanche survival knowledge with Bruce Tremper's book Staying Alive In Avalanche Terrain by The Mountaineers Books.
