About this app

This app makes it easy to see current danger levels for every forecast center in North America. It shows the present danger by coloring the forecast regions on a map and allows people to select a future timeframe for the centers that support it (Today/Tomorrow/2 Days Out).

With support for forecasts from over 20 centers, including NWAC (Northwest US), CAIC (Colorado), UAC (Utah), SAC (Central Sierras), ESAC (Eastern Sierras), MSAC (Mount Shasta), BAC (Bridgeport, CA), BTAC (Jackson Hole), GNFAC (Bozeman), WCMAC (Missoula), FAC (Kalispell/Whitefish), SNFAC (Sun Valley), IPAC (Idaho Panhandle), PAC (McCall), MWAC (Mount Washington), KPAC (Flagstaff), TAC (Taos), WAC (NE Oregon), CNFAIC (Chugach), JAC (Juneau), AAC (Anchorage), HAIC (Haines), VAC (Valdez), Cordova, HPAC (Hatcher Pass), Avalanche Canada, Parks Canada, WhistlerBlackcomb, VIAC (Vancouver Island), and Avalanche Quebec (Chic Chocs) forecasting centers, you can stay informed no matter where you are.

Doesn't scale the colorado forecast to my S7+ window. Scrolling any area forcast is poor, annoyingly slow and jumpy, despite excellent network connections. OTHERWISE, nice intent to consolidate forecasts.

It looks like the CAIC website doesn't support mobile browsers, but we've added zoom on the forecast pages to the latest version to work around that issue.

Older version was better, in that the written forecast fit to the size of the screen. This is no longer the case, nor can the zoom be controlled.

We have added zoom for the forecast views in the version just released. The forecast fitting to the screen has to do with whether or not the particular avalanche center's website supports mobile browsers. I think it maybe an issue with the avalanche center's website. Let us know which one you're having issues with and we'll take a look.

This is nice! It let's me just click on an area and go straight to the avalanche authority for it. It also has general color coding but of course you should dig deeper and understand more. I like it.
