A backcountry field guide for professionals and recreationalists! It can be difficult to remember and refer to all of the different clinics, classes, and conferences we’ve attended to be a reliable team member. This first-of-its-kind guide from Alexis Alloway is the single best tool to help you refresh the most important details in a rescue. Whether you want to bone up on terrain I.D. mid-season, or need to double check your patient packaging in the field; whether you’re new to a rescue team, or an old vet, this 126 page book will help keep you on your “A Game”.

Here’s what Seattle Search and Rescue has to say after a week of use:

“The best compact and comprehensive avalanche search and rescue book on the market. The book was primarily written for the Search and Rescue members, but is a nice tool for every recreationalist enjoying winter sports in the backcountry. It is a nice quick avy knowledge refresher at the beginning of the season or even before each trip. It covers everything from planning and risk management, snow analysis to search techniques, medical help and rigging. I would definitely recommend this book to anybody heading to the backcountry. Avy knowledge is perishable over the summer season, so a compact refresher is a must have.”
