This is the best book you can get for becoming a winter mountain leader. Well, it's also good for people who just want to learn about winter mountain skills too.
There are all the necessary skills for winter navigation, building shelter, and climbing in winter. Best winter mountain skills book I have seen yet

An excellent handbook for the winter ML student and a first class guide to refresh experienced winter mountaineers. Clear concise and readable it is packed with lots of good reading. Loads of colour diagrams and pictures, plenty of explanation, it is easy and straightforward to follow. If after reading this you do not know your sastrugi from a rutchsblock then you should'nt be on the hills in winter. Required reading for ML students, every walker who ventures out in the Scottish winter should own a copy.

This book is aimed at people doing serious winter hiking, scrambling and snow/ice climbing. It covers a broad range of mountain skills from navigation, weather and clothing to ice axe, crampon and rope techniques. Writing style is quite serious & academic, but still quite readable. Excellent illustrations help to bring the text to life. Some sections are aimed at people training to be mountain instructors, which weren't so relevant to me, so I rate it 4.5.

This book is fantastic and i would highly recomend it to anyone going back into the hills after a long summer. It is very easy to forget the nessessary skills to walk in the mountains safely but this book explains each one with clear pictures and text.

A good book for anyone interested in winter walking even if you are not a least bit interested in mountain leadership training!
Worth the money IMO and easy to understand too, unlike some of the books out there!

This was recommended to me by a guide and frankly it's brilliant. Very easy to follow, clear illustrations and instructions, everything I needed ahead of my first foray into the hills in winter

My son was very happy with this product, not very much you can say about this type of book, other than, it is a very insightful read, and is full of very helpful information about the subject. Very pleased with the seller, book arrived in good time and was packaged very well. Would recommend.
