Review: OpenSnow allows you to track conditions on your favorite mountains

Always know when and where to go for the best snow conditions with this iOS app.

OpenSnow is a ski and weather tracking app that offers a number of options for receiving updates and notifications about weather conditions on your favorite ski slopes. The result is a very useful app for planning your next ski trips. Whether you're looking for the perfect snow conditions and don't want to miss a big day on the mountain, or you want to know when your favorite mountain gets fresh powder, this app is for you.

OpenSnow requires you to set up and register a new account when you first start it, though it only asks for a few basic details so you can track your information. This allows you to choose things like favorite mountains, favorite conditions, and other details related to your skiing and snowboarding habits. From there, you can start tracking the weather on the mountain, create alerts, and check news related to your mountain. You can even sound off in the LiveSnow part of the app where fellow users will announce the conditions on their mountain -- live. You can add your own updates and help other skiers know where and when to go out.

OpenSnow is a well-made, free app that allows skiers and snowboarders to keep track of the conditions on their favorite mountains. It's not as social as it could be and there is ad support in the app, but the entire interface is streamlined for efficient access to the information you need. It's a great app for anyone who spends a lot of time on the slopes.
