Explore the wintertime mountains with Avy. Whether skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, or climbing, Avy has the weather and avalanche info you need.

Avy is your gateway to reliable avalanche and weather information, providing access to the Northwest Avalanche Center (NWAC) and Sawtooth Avalanche Center (SAC). But that's just the beginning. Stay tuned for an ever-expanding network of avalanche centers with future updates.

View streamlined, up-to-date avalanche and weather forecasts for your selected zone, use offline caching, and submit observations on the go. All the info and functionality you want at your fingertips.

Key functionalities:

- Streamlined Trip Planning: With a simple tap, you can access the avalanche forecast, weather forecast, weather stations, and zone-specific observations. To minimize scrolling, forecast components are collapsible, and navigating between zones is easy.
- Offline Caching: Nature doesn't always provide a strong signal, so Avy has integrated offline caching. Even when you're off the grid, you have access to forecasts, weather data and observations you previously viewed.
- Observation Submission: Submitting your own observations to contribute to the community has never been easier. Offline caching allows you to submit your observation without connectivity and it’ll automatically upload when you get back to service.
- Weather Data Optimization: Checking weather station data is crucial for understanding what conditions you’ll find then you get to the mountains. With Avy the process of selecting your weather station and viewing the data is cleaner and easier to tease out the information you’re looking for.

So stoked!

This is the first app review I’ve written, but I’m so pleased with how this has turned out that I have to say as much. For me, it’s been a skis-on-easy transition from my old routine of keeping various tabs open (key stations, weather and avy forecasts, etc.). The interface puts the top line info front and center while still letting me reach the details as needed. Great work!

So nice!

Huge upgrade over saving links. New app seems seamless, super easy to navigate (much better than website for viewing on mobile). The access to weather station data in 2 clicks is personally my favorite. Thanks devs!!

Easier than ever before

It is now easier than ever for me to view the forecast. This app is now another tool in my belt for when i am planning a ski tour. Thanks NWAC! Excited to see this app continue to evolve.
