Mountain Mtn. Rangers – The Avalanche Dragon by Erin C McCrea
with Contributions from Fritz Sperry, 44 pages full color.
This book seeks to change the avalanche awareness culture, making it younger and something that begins in the home. There is an introduction to avalanches and the avalanche problems, the forecast, the gear, the plan, close calls and topo maps. We close with QR codes so parent and child can take it further, learning together. The final lesson is a spread dedicated to ski area backcountry and the fact that it is the most dangerous type of backcountry. Know Before You Go is a benefactor of this project.
