more info about snow

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I would like to learn more about snow. Some good technical information, specifically about avalanches. I do not backcountry ski so it isn't really a matter of life and death but I'm curious. Could anyone recommend any good websites or good books on the topic?

"Avalanche Safety" by Tony Daffern available from Rocky Mountain Books is really good, though it might have more information than you are really looking for.

The American Avalanche Assoc. published a book this year called,
"Snow, Weather, and Avalanches: Observational Guidelines for Avalanche Programs in the United States" and put a lot of it online. You can find it here:
