Squeak lives in the subnivean zone, under the snow. Life is pretty ordinary for our friend until she walks into a skier’s backpack and is taken on a backcountry ski adventure. Scared but not alone, Squeak meets other animals that try to console her and teach her about this wonderful sport. The skiers are unsure how to best avoid avalanche danger and Squeak needs to help them make an important decision. Will she face her fears and save the day? Teach your child about backcountry skiing, overcoming challenges and the winter mountain environment with this ages two-to-adult children’s book.

"It neatly lays out the elevations, descent lengths, aspects, trailhead directions, winter maintenance and parking info, snowmobile access, skin tracks, and exit info. That combined with helpful photos, give backcountry travelers a very good idea of what is going on."
