can't live without...
probably rings true more than I can imagine....being somebody who has been featured on this web site, I can say its beta is quite valuable....these guys really go out of their way to be honest and yet not so conservative as to worry about liability, etc (stuff you would have to deal with in the States). They just tell it the way it is, very technical, but easy to comphrend, no bs. Non profit of course. A must for you backcountry skiers.
