With avalanche awareness rising as more and more skiers and snowboarders head for the back country the publication of this book is timely. While the fundamentals of avalanche science are the same in the Alps, America or Scotland, it highlights some of the unique aspects of this phenomena in the UK. First it highlights that avalanches occur outside the Scottish Highlands - in the Lakes, Peak District, Wales and even Ireland Secondly, its analysis of UK snow conditions is superb, providing insight into how the climate here affects avalanche formation. Finally, its educational on the techniques for evasion and for rescue

This book contains key information for winter mountaineering. Much cheaper than getting being in an avalanch. Full of real life case studies.

Having met Blythe and seen him work I have faith in the work he does with the Scottish Avalanche Information Service. As a keen Scottish winter mountaineer and climber this is a very valuable book and a must have if you go out in the Scottish hills in winter.
