Backcountry Skiing is for intermediate-to-advanced backcountry skiers. Includes safety, navigation, nutrition and fitness information in addition to techniques, providing advice on how to make well-informed decisions.
Martin Volken and his co-authors provide skiers with all the tools and knowledge that they need to safely and successfully travel in the mountains. The guide features intermediate-to-advanced techniques for ski touring and ski mountaineering, from planning wilderness trips to perfecting turns in rolling terrain and mastering uphill climbing. For those skiers ready for a more technical, high alpine environment, they draw on traditional mountaineering skills, including roped climbing, setting protection anchors, using ice axes, climbing on bare rock, and more.
