“A natural laboratory to study climate change” by Vatnajökull National Park and the Ministry for the Environment and Natural Resources is an excellent and easy to read (FREE) resource which I highly recommend. Here is the download link A natural laboratory to study climate change.

“Glacier Mountaineering” is the book that jump started my Glacier Guiding career. I often used this as a quick, simple and entertaining reference on how to tie various knots, ascend a rope, divide up a rope on a rope team, etc. Click this link: http://www.guidetraining.xyz/guide-training-library/

“Freedom of the Hills” is the mountaineering Bible that everyone should own. It is known as the definitive guide on everything mountain related and begs your attention. I often use it as a quick reference for various points whether related to rope work or mountain weather. Click this link: http://www.guidetraining.xyz/guide-training-library/

“Mountain Weather” is for those who want to dig into the topic and gain a deeper understanding then the basic info covered in something like “Freedom of the Hills.” This book is as close as you will get to a definitive guide to the topic without becoming a metrologist.
