Questions & Reviews

Will M (downright abused product)
This is a wonderful addition to any backcountry skier's library. It's chalked full of helpful info and trade secrets to the seeming subtle tricks of moving in the mountains. It can be a little dense for the novice but great for intermediate and up (think 30+ days a year).

I'm pursuing my AMGA Ski Guide certification and this was/incredibly helpful to prep for my courses & exams.
