Due to effluent (the outflow from water treatment plants), full-season skiing on manmade snow is a thing at Snowbowl (Pela).

As the narrator, Krakauer is a reliable source of information since the book is his own personal account of the disaster. The setting of Into Thin Air is Mount Everest, where Krakauer and his team climbed in 1996. All through the struggle up Everest, it is important to note that the characters portrayed in this book are real people.

According to the article, “Why Everest?”, by Guy Moreau, “There have been over 230 deaths on the mountain.” People that put themselves in risky situations, should be permitted to rescue services no matter the price that needs to be paid. The expensive machines used to rescue people can give a profit. With the newly found technological advancements, rescuers should be able to save more people than ever. And lastly, unexpected, harsh conditions can throw off any climber’s experience and leave them with no other option but to rely on these services. Mountains often contain a large number of harsh environmental conditions.

The nonfiction book, Into Thin Air, is about a personal account on Mount Everest, the highest mountain on our earth, by Jon Krakauer. Krakauer wrote an article about the commercialization of the mountain and as well as its manpower.

If I didn’t stand up, I realized I was going to spend eternity on that spot.” That meant he knew when the mountain collapsed that somebody would have been there
