Ratings and Reviews
Always use it for ski season
First, most apps have ads so let’s get over that. I actually don’t see that many to be honest. Anyway. This app allows you to pick the resorts you want to monitor snowfall, powder/conditions, lifts and trails open, peoples reviews of the day, pictures, alerts you when one of your resorts gets fresh snow....I really like it. It also has trail maps that you can actually see when you zoom in, location maps, you can be emailed about price deals, vacation packages, etc. Also the resorts are worldwide. Not just specific to the U.S. I’m a big skier and I love it.
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- I’d suggest updating the UI as this app is getting a bit outdated.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.
Advertising is obnoxious and disruptive
I hate the ads, especially the mandatory full screen video every time you open the app. I would much rather have a paid version offered.
I also don't like that it reports "upper elevation" instead of base, as upper is not a very useful measurement. This is especially true for resorts at lower elevations where the bottom half of the mountain is above melting temperature.
Otherwise, it's a fairly useful app to get a broad view of snow conditions across many resorts.
