The app has been built in partnership with Jerry Brown of Bear Creek Survey Service. Each waypoint in the Colorado Trail Map Book, written by Jerry Brown and offered by The Colorado Trail Foundation, is plotted and described in The Colorado Trail Hiker app. A portion all proceeds from the sale of The Colorado Trail Hiker app will go to The Colorado Trail Foundation.
The Colorado Trail Hiker uses a combination of your phone's GPS, downloaded topo maps, and the Google Maps interface to accurately locate your position on the trail. No phone service? Not a problem -- your phone's GPS pinpoints your location on top of topo maps downloaded as part of the app.
A bright red line indicates the location of The Colorado Trail on the map. The mountain bike alternate route is indicated in blue and accompanied by a separate list of waypoints and elevation profile. The 82-mile Collegiate West Alternative and the 160-mile Collegiate Loop routes are also included. An elevation profile shows trail distance vs elevation and plots your current location on the trail. Each waypoint is plotted on the profile. Each waypoints is clickable, opening to the waypoint's detail page.
The guidebook lists every waypoint in order by distance along the trail.
Each waypoint includes a detail page, providing further details about that particular waypoint. Details include the waypoint's mileage point and elevation, photographs of many of the waypoints, distance to the next water source, a Trail Register where you may post comments and read other users' comments, and other details that will help you during your hike, and help you plan your hike.
The types of waypoints include:
-->Trailheads and parking areas
-->Powerlines, fences, gates, toilets
-->Other Landmarks and points of interest

'Virtual' works when you and your phone are within 15 miles of the points to be located. In this view, the phone populates freeze-frame reference arrows for every location within the view of the camera. You can capture and save the image for reference if on a hike, boating, or other line-of-site route to a point of interest.
In the 'map' view, Google maps are integrated to combine GPS technology into your phone. This works well to view all the points in the dataset from any location, even if far from the points of interest. Or, use it while en route to your point of interest while a passenger, or hiking, or boating.
Download topo maps for the US and many other countries in advance, so you won't need cell coverage for navigation. Use storage memory for maps.
New: Android Wear support to see navigation at a glance on wrist

The Colorado Snow Report provides an online report of snow conditions for each of Colorado's 26 ski and riding resorts including past 3 snows and the forecast for morning and evening for the next 5 days, all in one place.
This free app provides the basics like new snow in the last 24 hours, base depth, percent, trails and lifts open and surface conditions. It also provides live webcams (where available) for each resort as well as a link to the resort website and a button to call each resort.
With this app, you can see all of your favorite Colorado resorts with the new 24hr snow and if they've reported yet all on one screen. Perfect for figuring out where to go without flipping through dozens of pages, then drilling down for detail.
The application is free and supported by sponsors that appear on the bottom of each resort detail page.
This app has only Colorado, and there is a separate app for Utah, and we will add other states or countries as soon as we get just a single sponsor for a single resort in that area.
PLEASE NOTE: The data is updated by the resorts, not us. They usually do it by 6am, but occasionally the resorts don't update it (particularly early or late in the season). If the data is not updated, it's because the resort hasn't updated it yet (app says 'No Report' that day). The data is from the resort also, so if they accidentally enter 0 for the acres open, that's what will show up. We report what the resort says.
