Mountaineers Books Mountain Weather Pocket Guide
Mountain and marine adventurers have one thing in common—they can’t just step inside their homes when the weather suddenly turns on them. If they understand the signs nature provides, however, they can prepare for weather downturns and find refuge before the situation becomes serious. These pocket guides are designed to give hikers, backpackers, climbers, skiers, paddlers, boaters, and sailors a quick reference that will help them make smart decisions regarding their exposure.
Like Mountaineers Books’ other pocket guides, this weather guide is not intended as a substitute for hands-on training, but as practical in-the-field reminders and reference tools that help people understand and read their environment. Pocket guide features include:
- Reference charts and guidelines for assessing storm and avalanche hazards
- How to read clouds, winds, and fronts
- First-aid advice for weather-related injuries and illnesses
- Lightning and wildfire safety information
