Snow Science Kit
Snow Safety Australia snow science kit gives you the minimum set of tools to do Snow Science.
Grab the basic kit and add to it as you please.
Included in the kit is
- 10X magnifier
- 1m RULE
- Crystal ID card
- Digital Thermometer
- Layer ID sticks
Polycarbonate Crystal Card
The Lexan polycarbonate crystal card provides a surface to analyze/classify snow grains and also has a slope index, which allows you to determine slope angles from a topographical map. Snow crystals placed on the card become recognizable and sizable. Ideal for sunnier climates, the Lexan crystal card does not absorb as much radiation as the aluminium crystal card, which allows you to study snow crystals longer and more accurately. This small yet very informational tool will take your snow safety skills to a new level.
Folding Magnifier X10
The naked eye doesn’t always cut it when trying to level up your snow studies. The 10X magnifying loupe allows you to analyze the snow crystals in 10 times greater detail and make more accurate conclusions about your snowpack. With a folding metal base and a scratch-resistant lens, the 10X magnifying loupe will help you make snow safety decisions. You can have the best techniques to stay safe in the backcountry by knowing the snow.
A thermometer is a valuable snow safety tool that allows you to accurately measure the temperature gradient of the snowpack. With the ability to measure the snow and air’s temperature, you can prevent an accident by avoiding avalanche terrain. This product comes with a sling for easy attachment to skis during air temperature reading. Be sure to bring the thermometer on your next backcountry excursion.
- Measuring Range: -50°C — + 300°C ( -58°F— +572°F)
- °C and °F display selectable
- Low battery sensation and display

FOLDING LOCKING DESIGN - Lock into Multiple Angles, Simple and Easy!
Can be fold into 10 lengths when not in use for compact portability.
Come in 1M and 2M lengths
The Slope Meter is a lightweight multi-use tool for your pack. This slope meter measures slope angle and is pocket-friendly and easy to carry with a lanyard attachment point. This slope meter measures the slopes angle when placed perpendicular to the snow, you can test to see if a slope is too steep and avalanche prone. Stabilizing quickly for fast reading, this product is essential for a safe backcountry experience.
Layer identifier sticks
Make layer identification easy with these coloured sticks. They look great in your pit photos too!
The Snow Safety Australia Rutschblock cord performs far better than the traditional knotted rope, revealing snow profiles with minimal effort. The lightweight cable is virtually indestructible and the low profile swage springs slice through snow and ice with minimal probe wear. Large loop handles can be used with gloves or mittens.
The clinometer is a small, light weight but strong and easy of use instrument. The clinometer has a small hole used to read slope angle in degrees scale
