We digitize the snow. SKNOW is a disruptive snow monitoring system that aims to reduce the amount of avalanche accidents and deaths, while improving knowledge and sharing about the snowpack. SKNOW is a ski mounted hardware device and a web/app platform. The SKNOW device attaches to the ski, reads the snow layers, GPS position and skier´s performance metrics. The skier is alerted on the device if a weak snow layer is detected. The app uses the device’s data to offer more detailed snow information in real time. The app/platform also offers crowdsourced snow data, GPS routes and trip suggestions. By using advanced signal processing and machine learning methods we are able to assess the snow conditions and offer more accurate and up-to-data avalanche risk maps for safer ski touring.
