For anyone venturing into the mountains: Does the weather say "go" or "stay home"? A meteorologist (and outdoorsman) guides your decision. Working as a broadcast meteorologist, Jeff Renner hears all too frequent reports about weather-related hiking, climbing, and skiing accidents. He'll teach you how to avoid becoming a statistic: all it takes is a little basic weather knowledge, pre-trip planning, and vigilance on the mountain. Renner discusses reading clouds, wind patterns, snow conditions, and other clues both pre-trip and on the mountain. If you do get caught under stormy skies, he'll teach you how to limit your exposure. The book is filled with tip lists and conceret examples. Renner also includes chapters on weather patterns region by region across the U.S., highlighted by reference maps.
