Présentation de l'éditeur

In this work, these two National Outdoor Leadership School instructors offer lots of tried-and-true tricks and useful tips drawn from years of experience. The material is easy to understand and accompanied by hundreds of entertaining illustrations by renowned illustrator Mike Clelland!

Biographie de l'auteur

Allen O'Bannon grew up in Portland, Oregon and while he dabbled a little in skiing and winter camping in the Cascades of Oregon it was really upon moving to the mountains of Wyoming and Idaho at the end of the '80's that he began what has become a life long passion. Allen has worked for the National Outdoor Leadership School since 1987 and spent four seasons working for the United States Antarctic Program. He prefers cold to heat and is miserable at the thought of global warming. He would love some cold weather consulting work. Mike Clelland is a NOLS instructor and illustrator who studied Mad magazine rather than go to art school. He has numerous books with his name on them, including Allen & Mike's Telemark Tips and Allen & Mike's Really Cool Backpackin' Book.

Good winter camping book but.... 6 février 2010
Par ClimberDave - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
I bought this book because I wanted to get into BC skiing and have a lot of questions about the diffs of tele vs AT, use of skins etc...
The book really doesnt offer much info on skiing. It does however have a lot of info on camping in winter conditions in an easy to read format with lots of pictures.
So if you need info regarding camping in the snow this would probably be a good book for you, if your like me and looking for more info on types of systems when you would want one over the other etc.. you should probably pass on this book.

A backcountry guide written for skiiers 21 septembre 2010
Par Lisa Linnell-Olsen - Publié sur Amazon.com
BackCountry Ski Book is a little bit misleading of a title, it really is more of a guide to the backcountry written for skiiers. This book is filled with nuggets of wisdom on how to survive and have a great time in the backcountry, when you are skiing.
Much of the book assumes some familiarity with skiing and the outdoors. An absolute beginner can still glean new ideas from context. If this is your first introduction to avalanche safety, and you are planning a trip where this will be important to know stuff, you can get a good intro from this book. The writers also give a list of recommended resources for anyone who needs or want more information.
Clellands cartoon illustrations scattered throughout the book are helpful in understanding the text. The Gonnick style humor keeps the illustrations funny and educational. After O'Bannion states why doing something in a particular manner may not be wise, and gives a better way to manage, one of Clellands illustrations will give you a picture to prove O'Bannion's point.
Some of the tips and suggestions in this book occasionally contradict one another - both Clelland and O'Bannion put in their own favorite tips, even when they disagreed. This allows the reader to select the best idea for themselves. The writers were clear to include under what conditions each idea works best.
This book does not give a lot of instruction on exactly how to ski in the backcountry. You won't find a lengthy discussion of body mechanics on all-mountain vs alpine vs classic skis on virgin powder or slopes. There is some brief discussion on how to get uphill on skis, and similar skills necessary when you aren't at a ski resort.
This book does not have an index, making it a little more challenging to go back and use the book as a reference. Since it is a paperback, you can always mark it up.
The tips on winter camping are really good. There is guidance on which type of camping stoves to get, how to keep your water bottle from freezing, how to pack a sled and many other useful tidbits in this book.
I purchased this book with my own funds. If you are ready to leave resorts behind and head off into the backcountry, get a copy of this book to guide you.

Useful even if you don't ski. 9 juin 2008

There are many tips in this book that may be of value for winter camping even if you do not ski to get there. The information is presented in an easy to retain manner with humor and cartoons. I may even try to ski one day.
Entertaining, concise, & information. A must have for winter campers and beginner or intermediate backcountry skiers 29 septembre 2010
Par MTNman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I wish I had this book before my first winter camping experience in Alaska. It would have made for a much more enjoyable & successful trip. In this book you will find tips on clothing & gear selection, packing appropriately, winter camping safety & planning (including building multiple styles of snow shelters), intermediate skiing techniques, backcountry ethics, and basic avalanche safety. All of these are accompanied by entertaining and informational pictures which for me are very helpful at giving the complete picture. Don't expect this book to teach you to become an expert skier, but it will help you get enough of a solid base to get started without getting yourself into a dangerous situation. I would even recommend this for the relatively seasoned winter camper, as there are several tips which you may not have picked up even if you do get out in the cold frequently. I just finished reading this book a second time and picked up a few more tips that I hope to use this winter.

I would also highly recommend An Illustrated Guide to Glacier Travel and Crevasse Rescue if you plan to do any glacier travel.
uniquely fun and uniquely useful 15 juin 2012
Par Ben - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book isn't going to be for everyone. Just take a look at most of the books out there about outdoor sports. Most of them are essentially gear guides, destined to be outdated in five years or less. While this book will give you plenty of helpful info about gear selection, the author and illustrator are much more interested in equipping readers with the actual skills needed to have fun in the backcountry.
In a strange way, this book is (dare I say it?) timeless. Even when the next generation of carbon-titanium-petroleather telemark boots hit the shelves, people will still need advice on how to take their skiing from the resort slopes to the wilderness. That's where this book comes in.
Finally, this book is a great resource for snowshoers and pretty much anyone who might find themselves on a trail in the snow! Don't hesitate to pick this book up, even if you don't ski!
