Snowmobile security techniques over glaciers, the illustrated guide.


Moving around glaciers is a dangerous activity in which many accidents have fatal consequences. Throughout his six first years guiding in Antarctica, the author carried out numerous test and trails involving prototype systems and modified equipment over some serious terrain indeed. The meticulously logged data has been formatted into a practically structured and readable result. This is an essential piece of work for those who wish to get over and about glaciers, in safety with snowmobiles.


It's all here in the Snowmobile Bible. The first book to explain in detail and with precision the steps needed in order to be to plan and control snowmobile activity in this dangerous arena. This manual incorporate photographs, tables and diagrams which help the reader to understand the basic principles and kit. Practical simulated self and team rescue exercises for guides, participants and clients, plus basic medical considerations are also included.


"The Snowmobile Bible fills a documentary void, and does so using clear and accesible language making it a vital reference manual for the professional and amateur alike."

Phil Waters (Geologist and Roped Access Technician, Phil designed one of the most revolutionary ice-axes ever: the Predators)
