    The forecasts are excellent. The app, less so. It doesn't cache any info, so every time you go to home page, it reloads, even if you were on home page 20 seconds ago. Crappy when data link is slow (or expensive). Otherwise good! Full Review

    Just DL'd. Already a significant improvement over OnTheSnow. Will continue to play with and see if I feel the need to encourage people to buy the advanced package. Keep adding and improving features. Too many taps to get to relevant data. I'd prefer a seemingly cluttered screen than 2 extra taps to see info. Example: base depth, trails and lifts open Full Review

    For the amount of time I'd otherwise spend figuring out where conditions are good, this app is well worth it. Tells me what I want to know, not glitchy at all. Full Review

    To see a week into the future in the forecast you need to upgrade and pay $19.99!! Do you want people to not use your app and just use the internet? Full Review

    It's my go to app for planning my weekends and sometimes work meetings in the winter. I've paid for all access for 5-6 years now and it's worth every penny. Joel is forthright about how much his models can predict and is usually spot on, and he writes really well. I like how Sam (I-70) always warns about having the right tires and vehicle for driving. CO needs more of that to keep drivers safe and minimize traffic due to accidents. Great snow predicting app. I highly recommend it. Full Review

    The only team to trust with your ever so important snow data and forecasting. I talk about Joel like he's a personal friend when planing ski trips. Great app, tons of info for free and worth supporting. I literally won't go skiing without reading what's on open snow before I get out of bed. Full Review

    Best Snow Weather App for U.S. on the Market Joel and Company have done a wonderful job with both the site and this app. The forecasts are excellent (I usually view Brian's in Tahoe), and the app is packed with features like bookmarks for your favorite hills with up-to-date conditions and webcams in the app itself. Well worth downloading, and their subscription service is super reasonable too if you want to upgrade. Full Review

    Best Darn Ski App Both Sides of the Mississippi! Ive been using the app for about 3 years now, back when there were no subscription charges. Because I use this app as a one stop shop for powder days, powder forecasts, snowfall history and more, I had no problem when there became a subscription plan option. Joel does a fantastic job aggregating data from many sources to display within the app and to do his forecasting in detail. Instead of using 3 diff apps to get your ski/mtn info, download this one and I guarantee you'll be as satisfied as I've been!! Full Review

    Ads interfere It's a good app, but while scrolling down and reading a forecast the ads cause the app to jump away from where you are reading and back to the ads. I've seen this in a lot of apps lately and I uninstall all of them. Ads are fine, but when they actively interfere with the UI, it's unacceptable. Full Review

    David Sutley Published date: December 21, 2017

    Has past snowfall (ex last 48hr, 72hr, and 5day cumulative totals) to a resort's snow report been added to the app? Having that would be amazing and I would certainly pay for it if necessary! Full Review
