Equipment, Safety, and Survival Skills for winter activities. Your guide to safely enjoying winter outdoors.
Outdoor trips in winter require careful planning and preparation. Down to -15°C, you can make the odd error. You may even be allowed one or two mistakes between -15°C and -30°C. If it is colder than -30°C, you simply cannot afford to go wrong.
A winter excursion to the mountains can be spectacular and invigorating. Crisp, fresh air, white, clear expanses, and the snow crunching under your boots or swishing under your skis. But how do you prepare? What do you do if the worst happens? With this book, you will find the answers to those questions and more.
Outdoors the Scandinavian Way is without a doubt one of the best guides for preparing for winter trips available today. Lars Fält is internationally renowned as one of the foremost experts when it comes to outdoor skills and survival techniques. Lars had an extraordinary career in the Swedish Armed Forces, having founded the Army’s Survival School, where he instructed generations of Swedish soldiers in how to endure even the most difficult conditions.
Now retired from the army, Lars has continued to pass on his knowledge to the general public and has written or co-written over ten books on the outdoors and survival skills.
