    The main difference is the usage not meaning. СКЛОН is more universal.

    В первом приближении по значению никакой разницы нет. Только по употреблению.

    ОТКОС. Покатый спуск, скат, наклонная поверхность
    СКЛОН. Покатость, плоскость, расположенная наклонно.

    You can say "на склоне лет". But not "на откосе лет".
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Only "откос железнодорожного полотна" is widely used. e.g "под откос".

    One new meaning of the word ОТКОС is popular now:
    Откос - часть оконного проема, обрамляющего окно с боков и сверху.

    Склон can be natural, откос is artificial (man made).
