The Homestretch

There is no sign of snow or cold temperatures in the forecast this week, which is great for winter driving and getting to the mall for last minute Christmas shopping. But the warmer weather can spell danger in the mountains when it comes to avalanches. Doug Latimer has just written an e-book about all the do's and don'ts around avalanche safety. Its called Avalanche! The guide's guide to safer travel in the mountains. Doug is a ski guide with the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides and has spent 30 years as a ski patrol, avalanche forecaster and ski mountaineer.
