Welcome to the avalanche.org Library Project
Library Home

This library is a cooperative project between avalanche.org and the WestWide Avalanche Network and past sponsors. The goal of the Library is to provide easy access to all types of papers that contain information about snow and avalanches. With additional support, avalanche.org will be able to post many more articles in the future. Be sure to check out select articles from The Avalanche Review. This is a publication that is supported and operated by the American Avalanche Association and its members.

PLEASE remember, this is only a starting point for avalanche education. It is not intended to provide adequate information for you to start making decisions for yourself and others in avalanche terrain.
