Snow Study Tools:
Essential For Avalanche Safety

If you work or play in the mountains in winter you need to be aware of the factors that contribute to avalanches. Brooks-Range Snow Science Study tools give you the ability to accurately measure snow pack qualities so that, combined with basic education and experience, you can better assess the snow for danger, fun, or function.

When you're ready to study snow, we provide the snow study tools to do it with scientific accuracy that won't weigh you down. From snow crystal magnifiers to rulers to thermometers, we have the tools you need to understand snow and avalanche conditions when you venture into the backcountry. If you want to make it easy, you can get a snow science kit that includes all of the tools you need.
