Reliable, must-have tool

This resource (and the website) is a must-have. All-access is very much worth it alone, but you get OpenSummit subscription with it. I read the snow and weather forecast every day Joel and the others prep. Going to an unfamiliar area, like Colorado->Tahoe? Pull up OpenSnow and realize why their can have rain at the lake and snow on the summits.

Also, their accountability for forecast accuracy stands out. They discuss their prediction vs. reality (retroactively) and it's very informative for understanding mountain weather generally. They will explain when and why their forecasts were wrong -- show me another major weather forecasting website/service that does that! I backcountry ski often, and hike/climb high peaks often in the summer, and OpenSummit's peak-specific forecasts are a crucial tool in assessing mountain weather (along with other resources to confirm, of course). Cross-reference resources.

Best snow tracking weather app out there!!!

This is without a doubt the most favorite app on my phone!! If you love staying up to date on current and future snow conditions this app is for you. I use the current conditions and webcams to plan the night before which local resort I’m headed to in the morning. I use the extended forecast to help plan days off from work in hopes of catching a powder day.

The free option is great for demoing the app and for the casual skier / snowboarder. The all-access version is a must have if you go to multiple mountains like throughout the season. It even has access to places like non-ski destinations like Rocky Mountain National Park. It’s worth every penny!!! (Edited - my 8 month old daughter prematurely hit send on the first version - sorry for the typos)

Was great, new UI is terrible

This was my favorite app for comparing conditions at resorts to see where I should plan may weekend. But recently they overhauled the interface and it makes it MUCH more difficult to compare snowfall, weather, etc. You used to be able to see this in one easy view, but now you have to slide through individual cards for each mountain, and each card has minimal information (two days of forecast vs five in the old UI, why was this change considered a good idea)

The UI is also inconsistent with the metrics you get in the free tier - in some places you can see 5 days of weather, and in other areas only 2 (further than that is blocked for free users in both cases). I’m fine with freemium, devs need to make money, but make it consistent.

Bring back the single overview of five day snow forecasts of all of your favorites and it’ll drastically improve my opinion of this new version.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback! About the free/paid features, that should be consistent across the app (always can see 5 days of forecasts for free). On the favorites screen, we only show a few days because there is no space for more, and tapping on the mountain will bring up the full forecast. In terms of what you see on the favorites screen, there is more to deciding where to ski than the 24-hour snow report number, so we wanted to show this + the last 5 days + the % of area open + the forecast for the next few days so that you could compare. You can also tap "compare your mountains" to bring up a sortable list so that you can narrow down which mountains are most interesting. Based on feedback, we do know that some folks like a different view of mountains on their favorites screen, so we are working to figure out how to add that as an option. Hope this helps! -JOEL
