Ratings and Reviews
Data doesn't fully match
First, this app should default to viewing Favorites list (if there are favorites), not Nearby resorts.
The I've used the website for several years and its pretty accurate. While this app gives you identical snow forecasts, the temperature and wind forecast reported by the app is different from the data on the website and is not very accurate or useful. Really guys!? How hard is it to put the same 6-day forecast data in the app. Thats all I want!
Free this is better than paid open snow
I wish I didn’t buy a year of open snow. Buying a year of this next year. Free version of this is better than paid open snow in my opinion
While I love the interface, I purchased a year of premium and I can’t even use it. I’ve hit restore purchase probably 100 times and it still won’t let me access the premium features within the app and won’t even let me access them on the website either. So $25 wasted.
