Avalanche Forecasts user reviews :
App does what its supposed to do but could be upgraded to match the design standards of Android. Browser within the app works but is not as good as the internal chrome browser Google offers. Links to WB skiing or similar would also be great
Excellent 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
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.
Excellent resource 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.
