Know before you go.

Before you pick out a line, you could do the old "Ehhhh, I think it's probably roughly maybe about a 40-degree slope, I guess", or you could whip out the Backcountry Access Slope Meter and actually get a real reading of the angle of the slope you're checking out. BCA hooked this inclinometer up with red, orange, and yellow markings to easily point out the most dangerous slope angles, and included a compass so you can double-check your aspect at the same time.

Slope a dope

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Picked this up to replace a 12 year old model I bought eons ago. I like the smaller size and the compass attachment. It fits easily in my Patagonia hard shell chest pocket for a quick inspection of any slope. There is also a hole for some dummy cord so you can tie it off. Using it is simple, simply whip it out and measure up. What I particularly like is that when the angle gets into avalanche territory this is color-coded so you can tell with a very quick glance the angle of the slope. The compass feature is nice because it gives you a quick check on aspect as well. All in all it is a pretty basic piece of kit, easy to use, nearly foolproof, and should be in the backcountry quiver of any off piste powderhound.
