NEW: Powder Vision

In addition to our new "Live Snow" data that shows hourly snowfall from nearby weather stations, we built a system to estimate the amount of snow that accumulates on a snow stake camera every hour.

Many ski resorts have snow stake cameras and this allows us to (try to) figure out how much snow falls each hour. We're calling this "Powder Vision".

  1. Go to any ski resort screen with a snow stake camera.
  2. Tap the "Snow Report" tab.
  3. View the latest snow stake camera snapshot and hour-by-hour snowfall for the last 24 hours.

how to use snow stake cams

We have over 60 snow stake cameras available right now and we do our best to add new cams to OpenSnow if we can host them.

Make sure you're updated to the latest version of the OpenSnow app (App Store / Google Play > OpenSnow > Update) or visit the OpenSnow website (OpenSnow.com).
