The Snow Report gives a comprehensive breakdown of all snowfall and inclement weather activity for worldwide mountain and skiing destinations.

The accumulation and timing of snowfall is data that is constantly changing. This cold weather app for iPhone, which is chock-full of snowy goodness, allows you to do far more than just track snowfall. 

The home screen is your main summary page, which lists several heavenly ski resort destinations, the snowfall (in inches), temperature highs and lows, and wind statistics. You can also further customize your weather report by finding 24-, 48- and 72-hour totals of useful data. Don’t see your resort on the list? No problem. You can search for any resort or winter park location using the “add” button. And if you need a global report, well, that’s offered, too.

Once you click on the ski resort you want, you get everything and anything under the sun you would ever need to plan (or prevent) a day in the snow: current conditions, five-day forecast, trail maps, directions to the resort (if you’re lost on the slopes, this’ll help). . . .You can even track your ski or boarding performance for the day.

But that’s not all! The three tabs—Report, Details and Share—on each resort page allow you to determine whether the resort is open, which lifts and runs are functioning, full ski, terrain, top and bottom snow base depth, and elevation and drop information.  There’s even a webcam with literally dozens of views that allow you to pinpoint almost every vantage point from any hill. Amazing.

Your final option is a features screen, and again, this winter app outdoes itself with info. You can find a North Face store, get news, find avalanche advisories, see user images and upload your own photos, update and check your own ski log, find other apps, and further customize this section. Snowed out yet? Hang on, because there is literally every bit of ski- or snow-related data you could ever want or need inside The Snow Report.

Here at The Recapp we cannot think of one thing this snow app is missingor needs to change. Nothing. And it’s free for iPhone, too.

If you’re a skier, snowboarder, snow lover, snow watcher, visitor, spectator or someone who lives in a mountainous region of the world, the Snow Report is a Winter Wonderland of an app.

Check out this weather app in a scenario about winter weather apps for iPhone.
