Under the guidance of Steve Long, President of the UIAA Training Panel, and Stéphane Lozac’hmeur, Petzl Foundation, the UIAA Office is currently working on publishing the second edition of the Alpine Skills: Summer Handbook in English.
A complete rework both regarding content and graphic design can be expected. The UIAA Office has produced an online form where member federations can register interest. Based on this non-binding feedback, the UIAA will have a clearer idea about how many books should be produced. In a next step, the graphic design and the print production will take place. In parallel, the member federations will be asked to place their orders.
Delivery of the new Alpine Handbook is scheduled for spring 2022.
For further questions please contact the UIAA Office.
Members interested in ordering print copies can do so here. Any members who express an interest will be contacted by the UIAA Office closer to the publication date to confirm orders.
A recent article also provided an overview of the current progress made on translations produced by UIAA member associations and The Petzl Foundation of the Handbook.
The visual displayed is a draft mock-up of the new Handbook.
