An actual guide to snow, understanding and interpreting it, making better avalanche predicitions.
This, the latest volume in Cicerone's World Mountain Ranges series, is a unique planning resource for mountain activists in the Swiss Alps. Not a guidebook describing specific routes, rather it is a book that provides all the information needed for a variety of mountainous pursuits, be it walking, trekking, climbing or ski mountaineering. Covering each mountain area in Switzerland, the guide describes all the country's major peaks, passes and valleys to help readers choose the best locations to indulge their love of the outdoors.

There is comprehensive information on all the relevant centres; Grindelwald, St Moritz, Zermatt and many, many more. Detailing access, accommodation and facilities in valley bases as well as pinpointing mountain huts, all the necessary information on where to stay is included. Classic walks and climbs in all areas are identified and major hut to hut trekking routes are outlined. Aimed at activists of all standards, the guide quotes climbing grades where appropriate. Multi-day trekking routes are also outlined for more experienced trekkers. A well-illustrated guide with scores of expertly drawn maps, this is the essential guide for active visitors to one of Europe's most mountainous countries.
