A comprehensive set of snow-study tools in a handy kit. The BCA study kit is designed to be beginner-friendly due to its simple and self-contained natured, but it’s also used by expert forecasters for the same reasons. The durable fabric-case includes several pockets for dedicated snow-study equipment and a handle to hang it over the tip of your ski while in use. Even when packed full, the Snow Study Kit stays low-profile and should always be with you in the field. In the backcountry, ignorance is not bliss. Instead, logical decisions based on concrete details enable blissful travel outside the ropes. Backcountry Access provides everything in this kit except for the training and effort, neither of which should be in short supply.
