Digging a pit and testing stability is a start, but to really analyze the snowpack, you'll need the Backcountry Access Digital Thermometer. Measuring the differences in temperature between layers allows further and more accurate predictions of changing stability.
- Measures from -50 to 200 degrees Celsius or -58 to 392 degrees Fahrenheit
- Protective sleeve included

Does it's job
I have found it to be quite accurate and quick at giving you the temp. Although the cover does not lock, it fits pretty snug.
Does exactly what its meant to, and gives readings surprisingly fast.
Also it can be calibrated easily.
Works well, but..

Great snow thermometer. Im a student of snow sciences at MSU and I've used this piece of gear quite a few times. It's simple and can switch between F and C easily. Only complaint is the cover for the needle, it does not lock onto the thermometer so it can slide off in a pack.
can this thermometer be calibrated? So...
can this thermometer be calibrated? So many thermometers vary in degrees and I need one I can calibrate myself! thank you
Yes. The screw in the center is for calibration.
