Essentially, this is a social app for skiers in Colorado. And it’s pretty awesome!
Before heading to any resort, EpicMix will show you the crowd, the slope surroundings, wait time for lifts, guides and maps with photos that users have uploaded from where you’re thinking of going. Once you get there, you can also share snapshots and stats from your phone.
OnTheSnow is an interactive way of helping you decide which resort to hit up as you plan a trip.
The app’s Firsthand Reports tool gives live updates from the slopes by skiers who are there at the moment. OnTheSnow also has a live web cam that provides the latest info on weather conditions.
Weather is the key factor to making or breaking a ski trip. With database of over 2,900 resorts, Snow Forecast is a great free app that gives detailed and precise climate information on specific slope areas.
