Snow Science

Snow Science Kit Tools:
Essential Equipment

If you work or play in the snow, the key to avoiding avalanches is understanding the snowpack, the conditions that cause them, the terrain where they are likely to occur, and the specific nuances of the snow where you intend to travel. A snow science kit and the snow study tools that are included in them are key components in order to do this right.

Besides having a working knowledge of basic avalanche protocol it is important to have a snow study kit with the right snow study tools to help you assess the snow pack. When you're ready to know your snowpack, a Brooks-Range snow science kit and the snow study tools that we include in them will get the job done with scientific accuracy that won't weigh you down.

Brooks-Range snow science kits, study tools, snow saws and avalanche probes are the best you will find. We have developed these tools with professionals and hard-core mountaineers who depend on this information for their job and their safety.
