Email alerts to late An alert that there is snow at one of my resorts at 10 am is a fail. If I'm going to get up and ride I need to know at seven or earlier. That's why I got the app for the morning updates and if it can't do that then I can find snow reports where I know I'm going to go when I know I'm going to go.
Super handy Does exactly what it says it does. Can't get any better than that.
Great for snow reports. Not good for maps Overall, a good app, especially for snow reports. But it feels like maybe a sloppy quick port from iOS - the back button doesn't work, it just exits the app. Also maps don't always work, or work glitchy (only show one section) and are uselessly low resolution. And they require a network connection to load even for starred locations.
Not real-time reviews On the Snow is useful sometimes, but has a lot of room for improvement. The first hand reports have to go through a screening/censorship process before being posted, which slows down the flow of information and limits negative reviews-- not ideal if you want first hand accounts for same day conditions. I've also found that the weather data and snow reports are not nearly as accurate as other weather apps I use.
Search area I live in an area where there are no large ski areas, and the search range limits me to 300 miles. If I want plan a trip and research a ski area, I have to Google them first to find out the name and info, then search through your app. But after googling it, I have all the info I need making the app useless. If you would make the search limitless so it could show all ski areas at once and I could click on them individually. Also if the longest trails info could be changed from miles to feet.
Good but "Loading, please wait" is annoying Informative, good layout, but slow on updating when switching between resorts and "loading please wait" as you switch between mountains ruins the responsiveness. Fix this and I go to 5 stars.
