Van Tilburg discusses essential backcountry safety equipment, the merits of crampons, skis, snowshoes, and splitboards for ascent, route finding, avalanche and glacier safety, survival and self-rescue, meteorology, plus cross-training and nutrition. He also covers techniques for all types of terrain and snow: steeps, trees, powder, corn, ice, and crud.
