I'm halfway through, what a fantastic book so far. I think this is a must read to accompany your AST training.

I'm reading this before I do my AST 1 later this month to give me a good idea of what to expect.

apologies to Krish for sourcing these book images from the interweb, instead of providing portraits of me reading them with a nice cuppa tea and a biscuit

Zee, Staying Alive in Avalanche Terrain is the book I recommend most to those wanting to learn about traveling in the backcountry. It covers everthing you need to know for a Level I avalanche course, and pretty much all the stuff for a Level II. It's a great book, entertaining, and informative. I read it in something like two days, and I have read most of it every season for the last 5 years. I read it before taking my Level I and what a difference it made. Once you get on snow and have an instructor showing you what's up, it really connects the dots.
