Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Alpine Ski Touring Handbook has all the information skiers need to get started skiing the backcountry on alpine touring (AT) gear. AT gear has an advantage over traditional telemark gear in that AT gear allows skiers to release their heels when climbing uphill but lock down their heels when skiing down, just like regular downhill skiing. Because of this, more and more skiers are now able to pursue their sport in the wintertime backcountry. To maximize fun and safety on their trip, skiers need the information included in The Alpine Ski Touring Handbook.

Ii includes chapters on:

  • clothing
  • gear
  • ascents
  • descents
  • terrain
  • weather
  • navigation
  • avalanche
  • safety
  • expedition planning and packing
  • survival techniques
