Product description

For examining current snow conditions in the field, the BCA Snow Study Kit has got you covered with a kit that contains all of the essential tools to conduct a thorough snowpack analysis.  You want to make sure that the line you want to ski is safe and the only way to do that is to dig a snow pit, analyze the layers of snow, take a look closely at the snow crystal facets and formations, then do a stability test to see if the slope can handle your tracks.  The more reliable your data is, the more reliable your decision making will be out in the backcountry. Mitigating risk and making confident decisions is what a great backcountry day is all about.  With the BCA Snow Study Kit, along with proper training and guidance, you have the ability to conduct a proper analysis of the conditions, so you cam arrive home safely to go back out and do it again, day after day, after day.

Features:

  • Kit includes an analog thermometer, slope meter, polycarbonate crystal card, 15x magnifying loupe and Extended Column Test (ECT) cord, all packaged in a compact carrying case
  • Proper use of snow study tools allows the user to gather valuable information on the stability of the snowpack and make informed travel decisions
  • Analog thermometer lets you check the temperature gradient of the snowpack; includes a sling for hanging on ski tip when taking measurements
  • Slope meter calculates the angle of the slope (angle range: 0 to 60°) and, using a compass to determine slope aspect, helps you navigate through potential avalanche terrain
  • Polycarbonate crystal card with metric grid, 2 mm grid and beveled edge; measures 6 x 4 in.
  • 15x magnifying loupe has closed sides for wind protection; pairs with polycarbonate crystal card to let you study snow crystal shape and size to evaluate snow stability
  • 2 m (6.5 ft.) ECT cord has knots every 24 cm (10 in.), and 2 swaged aluminum teeth at the center to cut through snow and crust; handles on each end provide grip while sawing
  • Note that many avalanche courses require students to bring their own snow study tools.
