If you want to know about the weather, whether it’s for your outdoor pursuits, or every day life, this is the ap for you. The forecasters write very interesting explanations. Basic forecasts can be had at a glance. The maps are great for tracking precip, smoke and more. I’ve lost count of how long I’ve subscribed. Developers have added many helpful, interesting features over the years. Get it and enjoy the power of information.
I’ve used OpenSummit occasionally to hike/fish mountain lakes. I was notified that they are retiring it and to download OpenSnow instead. I did and find that weather data is locked out beyond 6 hours where OpenSummit still gives weather data for the next two days. It may take me 6 hours to get to some mountain lakes. I’ve read responses. Sure, I could pay but I only use it a couple times a year and it’s not worth the $$$ to me. When OpenSummit stops working or lock’s weather data beyond 6 hours behind the pay wall too, I’ll uninstall.
OpenSnow has been spot on for years - both in local forecasts (New England) and planning trips west (Utah, Tahoe and Colorado). Setting my favorites, I can easily see past, current and future conditions at a glance!
I’ve been using Open Snow for probably a decade now. It was and still is my go to for chasing powder or knowing when I’ll be getting “sick” and can’t work. Heck, these guys forecasting is good enough that you can put in for PTO! Money really well spent!
The only weather app I pay for. Plus it gets better with time.
Forecasts, current, and historical weather in well thought out graphics.
Open Snow is my bible for mountain conditions!
Love the app and use it for absolutely everything year round whether that’s chasing powder, summer hiking, escaping the smoke-filled summers in the PNW.
There’s so many apps these days: one to remind you to work out, another to remind you that you haven’t worked out. Let’s be real, you actually don’t want to hit the gym, you want to hit the slopes! The crew behind the OpenSnow platform motivates you to get out on the hill with their spot on snow forecasting. Rather than being reminded to get movement in, I’m religiously checking the intuitive app for the next storm, cancelling my gym class, and planning the next trip outdoors.
It’s a helpful app for finding site specific weather in the mountains - I use it for the California Sierra. But it’s not cheap (when NOAA is free, just not as user friendly) and not nearly as accurate as they imply. We went camping this weekend and took minimal rain gear based on OpenSnow forecast for clear conditions. It surprised us when 2 days of rain moved in. Not sure how they could have been so mistaken. Political Comment: it’s totally bogus that lobbyists prevent NOAA from developing an excellent user website & app that would be free for all. Sometimes capitalism hurts us all.
