Sknow Digital Avalanche Safety

Our first product, Sknow, is rethinking avalanche safety by showing skiers the snow layers directly underfoot.  By applying principles and technology from the oil industry we are able to detect weak snow layers that might trigger an avalanche. Sknow technology will help skiers make better decisions in the backcountry and ultimately help save lives.
