Pieps created the 30 Degree Plus inclinometer so you can ski smart in avalanche terrain. Just attach it to your ski pole and lay it flat on the slope to get a precise measurement of the slope's angle. With goniometric calculations between a flat 0-degrees to a vertical 90-degrees and with a +/- 1 degree of accuracy, you'll know exactly what angle the hillside you're about to trek up is. This gadget also lets you know what the temperature it is in order to help you evaluate the potential changes of snow quality. The LCD screen provides an easy readout of the angle and the temperature so you can get on with your adventure (or reassess and decide to try again on a more safe day). The Li-ion battery powers this device for up to five hours, and its lightweight (only one ounce) and compact design means you'll never feel the need to head up the mountains without it.
