At AspectAvy, our mission is to save lives from avalanches. Which is why we developed a whole new class of avalanche safety gear: preventive avalanche safety gear.
DYNAMIC SLOPE ANGLE SHADING
This feature separates AspectAvy and makes us an avalanche safety tool. Our maps update slope angle shading in real-time based on the conditions you’re experiencing on the mountain. Even in airplane mode, we visualize the risk factor, helping to relieve decision fatigue, and giving you an objective picture of the risk level around your immediate location.
LIVE AVALANCHE AND WEATHER FORECASTS
We incorporate up-to-the-minute live avalanche and weather forecasts right into the app. The forecasts and maps are stored locally on your phone, meaning you have access to the most recent downladed information. Closing the gap between planning and touring, and ensuring you have the most updated forecast information available.
INDUSTRY-LEADING LiDAR MAPPING
Our rock-solid, fast-loading LiDAR maps are stored locally on your phone, meaning you’re not straining for a signal when decisions matter most. Accurate to 3-meter resolution, you’ll see the terrain and risk factor around your precise location. Giving you control of the slopes you ski, and putting peace of mind in your pocket.
TRAILHEAD AND DROP-IN SAFETY CHECKS
Our comprehensive and interactive safety checklists help ensure your preparedness, grounding your group in proper avalanche safety best practices.
BUILT-IN SLOPE ANGLE METER
Our built-in slope angle meter helps you verify slope angle so you know where to ski based on real-time risk levels. It also calculates the length of avalanche run-out zones, keeping you safe at the top of the slope, and the bottom when you’re traveling through avalanche terrain.
ROUTE TRACKING AND SHARING
Industry standard GPS route tracking shows exactly where your tour traveled, and makes it easy to share the route with everyone in your group. You can even see when and where you were close to avalanche danger, and where you avoided higher-risk terrain.
Our algorithm was built on decades of avalanche safety data. By harnessing this data, AspectAvy provides you with clear and precise route recommendations based on avalanche statistics. We pinpoint low-risk slopes – with risk levels akin to driving a car – empowering you to make informed choices with confidence, ensuring an exciting, yet safe backcountry skiing experience.

Not available in Alaska or New Hampshire
Update to Alpha Angle that provides some additional guidance, providing users with a more conservative buffer for navigating around avalanche prone slopes. This change has been made in response to the unusually weak snowpack that much of the Mountain West is dealing with currently.

Objective Snow Safety Data
AspectAvy gives those who travel in avalanche terrain necessary information to make go/no go decisions. It is very easy to see what zones are within the safe slope angle parameters. While nothing can take the place of education and situational awareness. AspectAvy is the first avalanche technology to give objective data to avoid danger zones. While most snow safety equipment helps once you are caught or buried AspectAvy can keep you from being caught in the first place.
This app is what the backcountry community needs
I’ve been backcountry skiing for 45 years. Accident and fatalities are a common event among experienced and professional backcountry skiers. It’s clear to me the avalanche training and the backcountry community culture has serious shortcomings. Aspect Avy is on the right track to take the guesswork out of winter backcountry travel.
