Outdoor Retailer: How to use a snow density gauge
Today at Outdoor Retailer, Donny Roth — a professional ski guide, ambassador for Brooks-Range Mountaineering, and Trailspace member — explained how to use a snow density gauge for avalanche assessment.

Donny walked us through the Pocket Snow Density Gauge 100 model from Brooks-Range.
