Unfortunately not everyone lives near snow! I thought this was a “trail” guide. Yes! I see the snow flake but I “assumed” it would be trails....gotta have a logo, I get it...snow, for “these trails”.
Of course....if you wanna ever do a “research project”, how Southern Ladies handle learning how to snow ski, yet have never even seen snow, give me a chance! It’ll be fun!
Trying to earn enough $ to go on one of ur REI trips.....they sOuNd like FuN!
Thanks for reading!

Missing cross country ski trails

This is an interesting app in the pantheon of REI project apps. What’s missing is a connection for the cross country skier who enjoys back country off trail routes. There’s an opportunity here to provide a combination app that serves both the back country skier who skis with skins And seeks seeks big mountain downhill opportunities and the cross country skier who may be toying with the idea of crossing over from the typical cross country ski /Snowshoeing domain to view the terrain that is accessed by the back country skier. In fact when I skied the Libby Creek Trail recently, which had originally been billed for cross country skiing, I had to use the mountain bike project app to locate the hinterland portions of the trail where no one had skied yet and The trail would become lost due to snow overs and a few downed trees.

Fixed dark mode but broke light mode

The search field font color needs to be fixed in light mode. The current contrast is nearly impossible to read. The results show up but if you have a typo you can’t see it. Would be a better app if the recording showed your full track statistics like Strava. Currently recording in this app is only useful if you want to add a new track not already in the map.
