    New Volume of "Snowy Torrents"

    Link below pretty much says it all:
    http://aaa19.wildapricot.org/event-2287459

    Although here's some quoted text if you're click-averse:

    The AAA is hard at work publishing a new volume of this classic compilation of avalanche accident reports. Make sure you get your copy hot off the press! And help us plan for our first print run while you show your support for the revitalization of this valuable resource.

    Volume 6 will cover eight years of accidents from the mid-90s through the early 2000s. A limited number of copies are available during a limited-time "early-bird" special (25% off). Early-bird sale ends November 15, 2016 or when we reach our early-bird quota of 250 books/bundles in each category (whichever comes first).

    Both print and e-book versions are available. You can bundle the two options together for further savings. All orders placed by November 15th will be fulfilled with the first round of printing. Books to be delivered during the first two weeks of December (just in time for the holidays... hint, hint).

    Special thanks to the Colorado Avalanche Information Center, a key collaborator in this project!
    The link also has the ordering info.
    For those stuck in the Northeast, check out the NE Rando Race Series and my avalanche course. (For other avalanche course providers anywhere, feel free to use any of my "homework" assignments for your own courses too.)

    We're done with 98 to 2001. Three more years to go. It's slow going- lots of material to collate, double-check, edit. Aiming for Jan 20, I think, was the last I heard. I'm doing some final copyediting for the project. It looks really pro. Thanks for your patience.

    Here's a mock up of the cover, using a photo from Scott Rinckenberger: http://www.scottrinck.com/indexClick image for larger version.

    ^^^ Whoa, when I first read that, I thought you meant 3 years until the book would be done, in January 2020! Ha! Looking forward to it

    They are getting closer. Just finishing up the appendices, which are quite complicated. Sorry for the wait, but the authors/ editors want to do it right.

    Muy bien. I'm well aware that editing takes longer than writing

    Life is a lot like climbing: there isn't anything much more comforting than a good #2.

    In my email today:
    Dear (meadow skipper),

    I am ECSTATIC to let you know that The Snowy Torrents: 1996-2004 has printed and will be on its way to you by the end of this week! Here's a sneak peak at the cover...

    (Didn't bother to copy)

    All of our pre-orders are shipping directly from our printer in Madison, WI. So, I anticipate that you'll see your book(s) sometime next week. You should also receive an email from our printer with tracking info on your package once it ships.

    Thank you all, once again, for your patience as we completed this project. We are excited to have a high quality book headed your way and hope that it becomes an invaluable resource to reference in your snow and avalanche library for years to come!

    Sincerely,

    The Snowy Torrents Team - Knox, Spencer, Blase, Emma, McKenzie, Ethan, and Jaime

    Yes. But, the site will die off one day.

    Again, bummer. Also, the company logo appears on the Supporters page, which is nice.

    Actually rog crossed my mind, but I got confused by the full name and the feminine pronoun.
