The Ski Pole Inclinometer Sticker
This sticker turns your ski pole into the world’s lightest and fastest slope meter. Patent pending.
“I could still travel safely if I happened to leave my beacon home, but I would be very uncomfortable without my inclinometer, which I use constantly to help me make good decisions.”
— Jill Fredston, long-time avy guru and co-author of Snow Sense
(from a 2015 Backcountry Magazine Interview)
How Steep Is It?
Knowing slope angle is a critical factor in assessing avalanche hazard. PoleClinometer is the quickest/easiest way to get accurate “on the go” slope angle measurements. It’s a sticker you put on your ski pole that lets you measure slope angle by line-of-sight.
Easy to Use
There are many ways to use PoleClinometer. Here are two:
In both cases, just DANGLE IT! Your pole must HANG FREELY from a loose grip for an accurate vertical reference.
Check out the use instructions for details and other use modes.
Works With Your Poles
PoleClinometer will fit the vast majority of ski poles available today. There are some exceptions, so check the fit page just to be certain, but odds are it’ll work with what you have.
Ultra-Durable & Made To Last
Stickers tend to get shredded by ski edges and such. But PoleClinometer comes with a burly crystal clear “heat-shrink” over-wrap sleeve to protect your sticker and make it uber-tough. Both the over-wrap and the sticker itself are waterproof and UV-resistant. Don’t be surprised if your PoleClinometer out-lasts your ski poles!
