About this app

OpenSnow is your trusted source for the most advanced snow forecast, snow report, high-resolution map overlays, and ski conditions information.

“Weather forecasting for the mountains takes extra focus, analysis, and precision, which is exactly what OpenSnow provides.” – Cody Townsend, Pro Skier

View Essential Powder Chasing Tools

Finding the deepest snow at the right time requires data, skill, and a bit of luck. We can’t help with getting lucky, but we can provide everything else, including outlooks from multiple weather forecast models, hourly details, mountain cams, and the latest snow reports.

Compare Mountain Forecasts

Choosing which ski resort has the best snow can feel overwhelming. With OpenSnow, deciding where to go is easy. Compare the latest snow forecasts, ski conditions, and cams for your favorite mountains on a single screen in just a few seconds.

Receive Expert Guidance From Local Forecasters

Now you have a personal weather forecaster guiding you to the best snow. Our local experts write a new “Daily Snow” forecast each day for regions around the US and Canada. Instead of spending hours sifting through weather and snow data, you can now get the inside scoop in just a few minutes.

Track Storms With High-Resolution Maps

We make it easy (and beautiful) to see if there is snow heading toward your favorite mountains, along with how much snow fell over the past 24 hours, season-to-date, and snow depth. You can also view 2-day forecast animations for precipitation, wildfire smoke, wind gust, cloud cover, and temperature, the global air quality forecast for the next 5 days, as well as the latest avalanche forecast and conditions for the past 7 days.

This app is so useful to decide where to go - and so much information in a small space! You can get as much detail as you want on quite a few factors - snow and weather forecast, snow history, web cams, etc. Easy to compare different ski areas. A very useful tool! For those with app issues - there was recently a fix for the freezing bug - and customer support is awesome. I had to uninstall/install - took about 30 seconds - and it totally fixed my issue. I don't mind paying for this information - these meteorologists focus on snow forecasts and fill a niche that is very useful to avid outdoors enthusiasts. They work a LOT and deserve to be paid for that work - plus it minimizes interruptions (ads)

Excellent snow reports. I've used Open Snow for years and love the detailed snow reports and forecasts. I've never had technical issues. This is one of the few apps I believe in enough to get the paid version. It's bundled with Open Summit which is my go-to for planning outdoor adventures in the summer.

I used to enjoy this app. Noone I know is continuing with it. Very disappointed in the new model. When first announced, I considered paying, as I don't mind paying a reasonable amount for useful apps. But $30 for an annual subscription. I was shocked. Maybe for lifetime. Even more discouraging is to see all the copy/paste responses that insist this is a small fee for a phone app! They clearly don't live in the same economic reality as us. Thanks to those who recommended OnTheSnow. Switched.

As they say ... if you aren't paying for the product, you are the product ... and we don't like that. Ad revenue works for Google and Facebook but they do not support small companies like ours that want to be around for years to come. Send an email to and we'll show the lack of accuracy of the "other apps". -SAM
