Sknow technology: Åsnes + Think Outside

Because the perfect skiing day ends with you coming home

Nothing beats a day out in the snow, exploring the backcountry, coming home to nature.

Skinning up that mountain, finding that perfect line, leaving the perfect trace: that feeling of adventure and freedom is what drives us to the outdoors.

And if we want to keep exploring, we need to make sure we keep coming home.

On a day out in the snow, avalanches are typically our biggest concern, and rightfully so. Slab avalanches represent 90% of all fatal avalanches and are typically triggered by the skiers themselves.

A slab avalanche is a plate of snow that slides on top of the snowpack, triggered by a ‘weak layer’ below. The weight of a skier can be enough to fracture a weak layer, and if the slope angle is right, this can trigger an avalanche.

The good news is that we have developed a device capable of detecting weak snow layers and helping backcountry skiers stay safe.




Freedom and confidence in exploring the backcountry

Sknow is a revolutionary technology that reads the snow layers directly under your ski, in real-time, giving you have the freedom and confidence to explore the backcountry with peace of mind.

Empowered freedom

What we are after when we go backcountry skiing is the feeling of freedom. Chose a mountain, pick a face, make your trace.  Yet that feeling is always a bit overshadowed by one major risk: avalanches.

Sknow gives you the information you need to make informed and empowered decisions. Less insecure, more responsible.
