However, just like you wouldn’t want to model your entire lifestyle on the stories of the Hebrew Patriarchs, you wouldn’t want to model your light & fast ski touring on this book.
Plus the Volken et al. “Backcountry Skiing” addresses almost everything related to mountaineering that a ski mountaineer needs to know.
