The Avalanche Review, 1982-present

All issues of The Avalanche Review (TAR) were published by the American Avalanche Association. Online copies of the journal (PDF) can be found here.

At the time of my latest research (October 2017), online issues were available from February 2004 (Vol 22:3) to the present. Also, the first issue (Volume 1:1, October 1982) was available online. Issues between October 1982 and February 2004 are believed to exist in private collections. It is hoped that eventually those issues can also be digitized and made available online.

I have paper copies of issues listed in bold below. The ID column below has links to review notes.
