The two core features of this application are:
1. A screen that helps to calculate the avalanche risk, based on the avalanche report, using the Reduction Method developed by Swiss avalanche expert Werner Munter.
2. A screen that provides a safety checklist based on the 3x3 Filter Method developed by Werner Munter.
This application can be used anywhere in the world as it has no regional specific information, but is best in northern latitudes between 35° and 55°. This covers most popular ski areas. Extra caution must be used in far northern areas such as Alaska and Scandinavia as weaker solar radiation makes the snow pack less stable. It must also be adapted for the southern hemisphere.
This app is designed to be used in conjunction with other sources for weather and avalanche forecasts. These can be accessed through the internet, MMS services, television, newspapers, official bulletins and other region specific phone apps.
Have a good winter, go big and stay safe.
