Probably not the best question for this format, given the highly subjective nature. – Russell Steen Mar 18 '13 at 12:12

Highly subjective question, with a highly subjective answer:

This book: Allen and Mikes Really Cool Backcountry Ski Book is always tops on my list for first time winter explorers. It fits both your criteria. Beyond that, the old standards like Freedom of the Hills have good general and technical knowledge related to all season camping and travel.
