Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Staying Alive in Avalanche Terrain

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Staying Alive in Avalanche Terrain by Bruce Temper seems to be the easily digestible and most authoritative all things avalanche.

Quick question for those that have the book - does the hard copy version translate well into Kindle or do images\tables etc fail? I primarily use a paperlight kindle.

@RichClark, the tables and graphics are a bit hard to read. It's still readable, but it's also the kind of book you want to flip back and forth in which IMO doesn't work so well on kindle. Tbh I wish I'd bought the hard copy version (not that I've seen it but I presume it is much clearer).

New edition is out in September. Not sure how many changes will be made, but maybe worth waiting.

@mgrolf, You're probably right, I've had few books now that don't translate well to kindle due to graphics of tables.

@boarder2020, Thanks, good to know, I'm in no rush.

Agreed, But 'powderguide' reads even better as it uses and explains very well the 3x3 (werner munter?! sp) method and provides simple ways of working out where you can and cant go in AVI level 1,2,3, etc
