It gives access to the interactive avalanche bulletin as well as the latest snow and weather data for Switzerland.
White Risk also provides background knowledge to assist in assessing the avalanche danger, and tools to facilitate planning both before departure and en route, for ski touring, snowshoe hiking and freeriding expeditions.
The app's Tour function allows tours planned on the Web platform https://www.whiterisk.ch to be plotted on maps with slope angles offline.
Neben dem täglichen Lawinenlagebericht und aktuellen Stationsdaten bietet LAWINE TIROL praktische Tools wie Kompass, Höhen- und Hangneigungsmesser sowie Hintergrundwissen zu Lawinenkunde. Außerdem gibt es die beliebten TT-Tourentipps sowie alle Lawinen-Eilmeldungen aus der TT.com-Redaktion als Push-Nachricht.
Für Mitglieder der Tiroler Lawinenkommission gibt es einen geschlossenen Bereich in der App, welcher den mobilen Zugriff auf wichtige interne Informationen ermöglicht.

Ullr Labs’ Mobile Avalanche Safety Tools (MAST) combines Android technology with established snow science to improve winter backcountry travel decisions, make it easy to share observations and adventures, and provide ongoing resources to increase avalanche knowledge and awareness.
We bring the features of gps, camera, compass, clinometer and snowpit book together in one easy-to-use tool*. With MAST you can:
•Download and read the most recent avalanche forecasts for your area.
•Review conditions recently reported by other users.
•Easily collect information about snow, weather and terrain conditions and avalanche sightings on your trips, using well-established snow science definitions and guidelines.
•Record location, elevation, slope angle and a photo of the area in one easy step.
•Receive warnings when recorded conditions and test results are at levels that avalanche science considers high-risk.
•Share your observations with the regional avalanche center (US only) and backcountry community in your area.
•Link to various educational resources to increase your knowledge of snow and avalanche science.
*GPS and Camera support only in devices equipped with those features.
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.
If you would like to volunteer to translate the app into your language, please contact me.

Außerdem können Sie Zusammenfassungen gängiger Redewendungen für den Skiunterricht in Sprachbüchern auf Englisch, Italienisch, Französisch, Holländisch und Russisch kaufen.
Des Weiteren sind wichtige Infos zur alpinen Sicherheit und zur Pisteneinteilung sowie die FIS-Regeln enthalten. Über die App können auch Fotos und Videos aufgenommen werden. Damit kann das Gelernte im Unterricht mit den TeilnehmerInnen analysiert werden.Das App ist ein Must-Have für alle Skilehrer und Skilehrerinnen.
The slope incline is a key parameter for European decision making strategies in wintery and avalanche prone terrain.
The SNOWHOW-Freeride App is no substitute for any other tools of orientation and decision making and necessary safety gear. Shown tracks and map information are not recommendations for any terrain use.
The GPS-function of your phone allows you to find your current position on the map and also records your track on the mountain.
Combined with the color coding of the slope incline, you can evaluate the terrain around you.
You can save your tracks on the phone and view them later. Once saved, you can synchronize your snowhow.info web-account with your phone (uploading your own tracks and downloading public available tracks).
You can make your tracks public. Every other user of snowhow will be able to use your tracks on the mountain.
The more tracks we all publish, the more information we all get.
Color coding for incline:
The color coding shows the steepness of the terrain in four sectors.
These sectors are used in decision making strategies in Europe. The knowledge and correct use of decision making strategies (see http://goo.gl/y5Rmx ) is essential to be able to use the SNOWHOW-Freeride App properly. If you are not familiar with any kind of decision making strategies or any other knowledge about decision making in avanlanche prone terrain, do not use the SNOWHOW-Freeride App.
Opacity for color coding:
You can adjust how strong the colors for the steepness should appear on your screen. Click the “adjustments”-button and go to opacity. Any value from 0-100 changes the opacity.
Resolution and color coding:
Each color coded tile shows an area of 10 x 10 metres or real terrain. Keep in mind, that within 10 metres the steepness of a slope can change dramatically.
If you want to adjust the map on your smartphone to reality, click on the compass-function. The screen will show you in which direction you should turn your phone to orientate it to North-South.
Weather data and Avalanche Bulletin:
If you go online with your smartphone, the SNOWHOW-Freeride App will automatically load the newest avalanche bulletin. The menu-feature shows you if your avalanche bulletin is up-dated (green button). If your avalanche bulletin is out of date, the button will be red.
This service is only available in Tyrol/Austria.
Once online, an extra layer shows you the weather stations of Tyrol/Austria. Clicking on any of them, you will be directed to web-based information of the specific weather station.
