The best of the best!
I used to ski a lot before I suffered a knee injury in early 2009 while on a trip to Mammoth Mountain. Although my skiing days are now few and far-between, I follow OpenSnow daily (multiple times a day in the Fall/Winter/Spring), particularly because of the unique understanding of the microclimates around the Tahoe Basin, where I live. Bryan Allegretto is an incredible Meteorologist! He may not know the exact number of people who look forward to and (no pressure!) depend on his forecasting prowess, but out of all of the available weather and climate forecasts/predictions for our area, I definitely look forward to and enjoy his amazingly-dynamic posts the most. The detailed descriptions along with pictures and maps that he provides with every post are engaging, knowledgeable, and fun! I know that he spends a lot of time preparing these posts, and they are appreciated and enjoyed beyond belief! Of course there are many other features of the App that are invaluable, and I use them all frequently. Thank you for all of the never-ending determination and hard work to keep OpenSnow as the very best of Weather Apps available to all of us “weather freaks!” Whether we ski, snowboard, or just love and look forward to those days that the sun isn’t “shining bright,” you guys are the best! Thank you!

Awesome Weather App for Skiers
This is my go to App snow conditions. Everyone I know who is crazy about snow sports uses this App. Last Xmas we skied with long-time friends and they geek out on snow conditions and forecasts with this App as well. Last January, we had to be rerouted on the Den-Jackson flight b/c of lack of visibility at the airport. Practically everyone around me on that flight had this App on their phones looking to see when we would have an opening to land at JH airport—that was the weekend of 48” of snow on Wed-Friday. If you love snow sports and have a need to know what the conditions will be like this is the App for you. From Late September to Early April, I become a total weather geek/expert thanks to these guys. My only complaint is that I wished the leading snow storm indicators could be more accurate. But like any leading indicator it’s just not possible to know for sure until it happens. These guys (I don’t believe there are any gals—although that would be a good addition) take the guessing out of snow conditions and forecasts.

Inconsistent, not worth price
I’ve used this app religiously the last 4-5 years and this app has managed to go downhill from the start. First and foremost the most consistent and detailed forecaster on this site is Evan Thayer. They frequently have one forecaster for large areas (Bob Ambrose AB/MT) and in turn lose out massively on consistency of forecasts, in addition to quality. Open Snow introduced a semi paywall 2 years ago which has led to its demise. First, they capped the quantity of forecasts you could read at 7 per week. This was announced pre-season and I was disappointed; yet understanding as they had brought on Evan and his forecasts are awesome! Several weeks later (I believe) they were lowering the quantity of forecasts you could read to 5 (which I think was further reduced to just 4) on the basis that their customers were reducing consumption of forecasts to stay under their premium pay wall. Now, I wake up today to find that Open Snow has decided to eliminate access to all forecasts other than a 3 sentence “summary” which they’ve instructed their forecasters to leave void of any useful information. This company has certainly fallen in line with the rest of the snow sports industry to gauge their supporters for as much $$$ as they can. Right on OS!

Hello and thanks for the feedback. We want to work directly for our users and earn your subscription dollars by continuing to produce a high-quality product, by creating new features, and by offering an unbeatable value like the All-Access Group subscription. While advertising revenue works for Google and Facebook, it does not for smaller companies like ours that want to create a great product and be around for years to come. With All-Access, you receive unlimited access to OpenSnow AND our summer service, OpenSummit, with the following features: 10-Day Snow Forecasts, Full Daily Snow Forecast, High-Resolution Maps, Custom Powder Alerts, Backcountry Snow Reports, Estimated Trail Conditions, Wildfire Smoke Forecasts, Air Quality Index Map, Offline Maps, and much more (OpenSnow.com/allaccess). That's year-round weather coverage for all of your outdoor activities for less than a cup of coffee per month. Please send an email to email@example.com if you would like to chat further)! -SAM & EVAN
