Voted 5/5

A comprehensive book on hiking and camping in the backcountry during the winter safely. I enjoyed this book. I will probably read it again, come closer to winter time to see if I can glean some more tips off of it. Good book!!

This is a solid book on winter stuff. It goes into a lot of detail. This is an excellent starting point for somebody looking to get out in the winter for the first few times.
