Concise and descriptive summary of the danger, avalanche problem, snowpack and weather forecast. The NWAC application doesn't work as well as this one
Such a dedicated, brave and caring crew behind this website makes this information real time and accurate. I really do pray for your safety.
Needs to be a little more mobile friendly. Avy reports etc appear like they do on a computer and are not formatted for phones. Just a minor gripe. Everything else is really helpful and well made.
Easy access to forecasts across the west. When you're planning to travel to different areas throughout the winter, there's no better way to track their snowpack development.
Great app, saves lives!
I check this app every day before I go out into the backcountry. The diagrams are easy to usr and informative. It definately impacts my decision about where I choose to ski
It doesn't cover everything, but it seems like new features are still being added all the time so I went ahead and gave it 5 stars.
My go to app for back country travel planning
Great for getting avalanche information on the go, which is especially helpful when a computer is not readily accessible.
Up to date information & pretty accurate. Granted weather & conditions are always changing this app gives you a good guide line of conditions.☆☆☆☆☆ remember to use you head to make the right judgment call. Dig your snow pits, carry a probe, & have fun out there.
So great to have this knowledge!
It's a great resource to be able to hear from people with everyday, first hand knowledge about what's going on to help us make informed decisions about going out to the backcountry. Thanks UAC!
An avalanche of info
Please excuse the bad pun but this app has all kinds of great up to date snow stability info. If you ski tour, this app is for you.
I climb almost every weekend in the winter and this app. is a very useful and potentially life saving tool. I really like the way that it links directly to the Northwest weather and avalanche center website. Thank you!
Necessity for back country travel. Love it especially when I live at 8200 feet. Lobe being able to view other states as well. Great app highly recommend!
Great avalanche forecasting. Making it quickly accessible via a smartphone app makes staying safe in the backcountry one step easier
A must have tool for the mountains
This has been a great tool for monitoring the avalanche risk, especially when you live away from the mountains and want to prepare for a trip snowmobiling! Avoiding high risk days in avalanche terrain keeps you alive for the next trip.
Works great. Especially helpful for people who travel and are unaware of web sites for regions they are planning to tour. Good interface and quite useful.
Nice quick reference. I teach Snowmobile based avalanche awareness classes for the State of Idaho and use often. Any chance in linking the Payette and Pan Handle centers in Idaho?
Best Avalanche app
Great app. Easy to use yet can give you all the detailed information with a simple tap on the area you want. Couldn't be designed better.
Great app to check avalanche forecast on the go
Living in Utah where avalanche conditions can be rather tricky Utah Avalanche Center is great and to have the app to check things on the go especially if I have been busy and haven't had time to follow the snow conditions its an easy way to get most of the information I need before heading out into the backcountry.
Great app, a little lag on the map, and a mobile page for the detailed report would be nicer to have, but still really handy to have
Awesome support and works like a charm :)
And they were super quick at fixing a broken link due to an external website changed :-) +1 and half to that!
Links right to the CAC forecast. Can't wait till CAC makes their widget/app though as it will. Make this obsolete for me.
Good basic program does whats promised. It would be sweet to include forecasts from other countrys, maybe have function to add a forcast region? Also a manual 'offline cache' would be nice? Overall good
Gives a easy to navigate entry to local av centers information. Some mention problems with the CAIC, but I only noticed that around the time that they changed their site. It seems to work fine now. GS3.
No offline support
Cool unification of several services; basically just links to the detail pages from various services. I use it with NWAC. I would love if it had offline/sync support so you could check the conditions even after you've left cell reception.
It's a great way for me to check the avalanche forecast in the morning before heading out. No more having to dial in to the hotline and listen in the phone.
Universal, consistent, effective tool.
I love that I can check avy conditions in Washington, Wyoming, and BC all in one place. Reports are accessible, succinct, and helpful for supplementing my back country decision.
This app is perfect for me up in Vail because it gives me the daily conditions and CAIC is always right with the snow conditions!!
The app works great to check forecasts when your out and getting ready to go. It's nice that it links to all the major forecast centers
Good to have. Remember to turn on airplane mode to avoid interference with your beacon!
Good layout. Easy to use. I use it to gauge avalanche danger before skiing or snowboarding trips.
Live saver app
I always check this app before heading out. Even if you're not going in the back country it's good to know what the risk level is at.
Excellent app for integrating allnof the various regional avy information centers - great if you frequently travel to different regions.
Does everything the app says very well. Makes it more convenient to follow trends for someone who doesn't get out enough such as myself.
