Organized around seasons rather than location or elevation, this color guidebook offers a sampling of forty-two (42) select snow climbs in Colorado. Includes a brief trail description, small topo, and a few photos for each route.

Certainly not all inclusive of the many fine snow routes the state of Colorado has to offer; but, I find this guide to be well-organized and exceptionally useful in choosing a suitable snow route for the current season. The brief route descriptions are reader friendly, and the recommended gear section is helpful in determining a comfort level prior to getting on the mountain. I would recommend this guidebook for anyone interested in exploring some of Colorodo's fine snow routes.
