Backcountry Avalanche Safety is an up-to-date, tightly written, backcountry-focused book that clearly explains the basics of snow and avalanches using color photos and diagrams. It describes the skills needed to travel through avalanche terrain and provides guidelines for skiing and boarding steep slopes with an emphasis on managing risk. Includes a detailed hyper-linked table of contents and may cross-references.
While Backcountry Avalanche Safety is specifically formatted for the iPad it also looks good on your computer screen using Adobe Reader. It is useable on an iPhone, especially the iPhone 4. The best reading and navigating experience is using iBooks on an iPad. Bookmarks and links work well and the slick page navigation slider at the bottom of the page makes moving around the book very easy.
