The Brooks-Range Slope Meter (commonly known as an Inclinometer) is an essential tool for backcountry adventurers traveling through avalanche-prone terrain. It takes the guess work out of slope gradient assessment, measuring the gradient of a slope up to 55° marked at every degree, and stabilizing quickly for fast reading.

How does it work? The Slope Meter contains a ball bearing suspended in oil that gravity forces to the lowest point of the meter. Place your ski pole running down the slope you wish to measure and then lay the Slope Meter on the ski pole to measure gradient; this way you get a more accurate reading. The most dangerous avalanche prone angles of slope are marked in red orange, yellow on the graduated scale.

The backside features a handy black screen that makes quick work of snow crystal analysis by providing 1 and 2 mm grids to measure crystal size and shape.
