Every single yr around the world, men and women cross paths with avalanchessome massive, some no deeper than a pizza boxwith lethal benefits. Avalanche expert Jill Fredston stalks these so-known as freaks of naturel, forecasting exactly where and when they will strike, intentionally triggering them with explosives, instructing possible victims how to keep alive, and primary rescue attempts when tragedy strikes.
In Snowstruck, Fredston draws on many years of personal encounter to just take avalanches out of the statistical realm and into the individual one” (Skiing Magazine): a skier making what may show his ultimate determination, a sufferer buried so tightly that he can not transfer a finger, rescuers racing both time and weather conditions, forecasters treading the line among realistic risk and threat. Fredston delivers to existence the wonderful forces of naturel that can change the mountains deadlyand the similarly inexorable forces of individual naturel that lure us time and once more into treacherous terrain.
