Description - Avalanche Aware by John Moynier

The concise and simple text explains the dangers associated with avalanches and how to avoid them. Revised to included information regarding the new digital avalanche transceivers and the changes in search patterns these have enabled, changes in terminology, and a small section on the hot topic of heuristics, which relate to psychological traps (i.e., decisions based on experience and not necessarily an objective assessment of the existing conditions).
