Snow Alert

By Bennett Owen

When it’s dumpin’ this APP starts thumpin’. Looks like we may be able to get some use out of this nifty little device after all.  It homes in on your GPS position and lists conditions at every ski resort within 500 miles.  You can customize it of course and even set an alarm to let you know when conditions are just right.

  • Top Snowfall Levels
  • Lifts Open
  • Runs Open
  • Base Depth
  • Summit Depth
  • Forecast Details

And if the App sends you up Little Cottonwood Canyon above Salt Lake City, you might just get a glimpse of this gal
