Avalanche accidents in the united states
The Snowy Torrents
The Snowy Torrents is a crucial resource for in-depth avalanche accident information in the United States. In 2017, the American Avalanche Association published a compendium of accident case studies taking place between 1996 and 2004; this marked the publication’s fifth volume since 1967. Its authors, snow professionals with decades of first-hand experience, craft thorough and compassionate case studies of fatalities and close calls using original accident reports, media coverage, and interviews with survivors and investigators. Each case study also includes authors’ analysis, offering readers a chance to learn from others’ experiences. Please reference preview below.
