The new version is a huge step backward
It verges on not being at all useful. I have been an avid user for 5 years. This was my tool to see where (which ski areas) it had snowed and where it was going to snow and what temp and conditions were. It is now a vehicle for ads. The forecast component is terrible now. The history component is not much better; I can see snow in the past 2 days. This has gone from a useful ski app to useless. The layout and architecture is so compromised, I don’t see how it can ever be a helpful tool.
Update: It doesn’t even feel like an app, more like a mobile web site. You can find things, but they are really buried. Went from one star to two—but the previous version was 4+ and lived on my iPhone home screen. This one will be moved way back, and if you continue to force social media log-in credentials, I am gone. I would pay a $5-10/year subscription for this info with less obtrusive ads and a better interface. Would pay that for the old app.

As you may have seen we've been trying to make consistent improvements by making the data you want to find easier to navigate to. We are listening to reviews and appreciate the feedback. More improvements to come!
Horrible UI/UX update (ver 7.x)
I was wondering why my girlfriend was having such a hard time finding information after I told her to download this app, which I’ve used nearly exclusively for years. “It’s all on one page. It shows you everything—open runs/lifts, latest snowfall, projected opening/closing dates—for all your favorites on one page,” I said. “You can see those details and whats going on for 10+ resorts all at once within a 5 second scan. It’s great. Easy. You probably just need to add a few resorts to your favorites.”
She was still having problems. I just assumed she was not so tech savvy. It wasn’t until I recently downloaded the update for this app that I realized what the problem was. The developers completely trashed what used to be a 5-star app.
It almost seems as if the developers lost their sense of UX. I’m not opposed to change. But I do have a problem when change creates excessive inefficiency. What I used to be able to see within 2-3 taps, 5 seconds of opening the app now takes several taps, several scrolls, and several minutes. The usability of this app (as of ver. 7.x) went to the dumps.

Hi there, we really appreciated this review and used it to make some key changes to our app that we released yesterday. You can definitely see details for 10+ resorts all at once and we want to ensure you can easily get to the data you want. Hope you'll give it another shot. Thanks again!
App is losing value
I’ve used this app for my snow reports for several seasons now. While it was good and used to work seamlessly, it’s now starting to fall apart. Now sometimes my snow reports won’t even update for days. Leaving me looking for other ways to check my favorite resorts snow totals A couple things I’d like to see on a new updated app:
- I’d suggest updating the UI as this app is getting a bit outdated. Something fresh and modern instead of looking boxy and plain with bright colors.
- updated trail maps
- the ability to organize your favorite resorts by state or region
- show acreage open per mountain (helpful for the first two/three months of the season)
- ability to zoom in and scroll vertically on trail maps. (currently you can only scroll horizontally while zoomed in, thus almost making it pointless.)
- updated snow depth history (charts look incomplete and it’s hard to visualize the chart and compare with last season)
Overall i’ve loved using this app in the past and it’s been my go to for snow reports but it’s showing its age and needs a major overhaul to stay at the forefront of snow reports and weather updates. I’ve now started to go elsewhere for my information.
