Title Avalanche Handbook
Subject Avalanches--Handbooks, manuals, etc.
Description This handbook has been prepared primarily for the guidance of Forest Officers concerned with the safety of skiers using winter sports areas within the national forests. It discusses the various phases of avalanche hazard evaluation and control in layman language. Although parts of the handbook are devoted to a description of the research methods developed to evaluate hazard and snow stability, the primary purpose of the handbook is for the guidance of the "man-on-the-ground" in coping with the problem.
