How to: Snow Profiles / Creating a snow profile – If you are out in the backcountry with your skis, you should know what kind of snow cover we have. The right equipment alone is often not enough – a snow profile is very helpful.

This winter we had hardly any frost on the ground, a lot of wind and extreme temperature differences … I’m curious what the snow profile will show us. And don’t forget to ALWAYS switch on the avalanche transceiver, only then will it help!
