Beacon Guidebooks Avalanche Search and Rescue is a backcountry field guide to help us be the best, most prepared team member possible. This durable, compact tool helps us remember everything we’ve learned about leadership, risk management, search strategies, shoveling, medical, patient packaging, rigging, and quick reference cards for the many details involved in a backcountry avalanche rescue.
Alexis Alloway makes sure you have the most up-to-date, best practices in a quick reference tool that is both beautiful and accurate. Use it to study up early in the season as you transition out of summer, refresh yourself mid-season, before or after taking or teaching a class, or pull out of your pack to double-check your knots and snowpack tests or to jot down field notes.
This guidebook is waterproof and tear resistant, making it suitable for both professionals and recreationalists. It measures 5.5' wide X 7' tall X 0.5' thick and weighs 5 oz.
