Think Outside

Think Outside has developed Sknow - a small radar sensor that may be put on skis and that reads the snow underneath the snow below the skier in real time. The data is principally meant for skiers that skis off-piste (mountain skis, freeskiing, and ski touring), but proves to also be attractive to industrial partners that work directly or indirectly with snow and ice.
