Snow Study Kit

One of the standard backcountry practices for snow safety involves knowing what the heck is going on in that snow you're planning to ride—particularly the aspect you're hoping to pick. Armed with this Snow Study Kit and the knowledge of a few avalanche courses, you can help decide whether the situation is safe, or whether you should head home and try again another day.

  • Slope meter and compass measures the aspect angle from 0 - 60°
  • Analog thermometer included a sling for hanging off your ski tip
