DAN MOORE, SnowSeekers Inc.
Recently, I updated our snow conditions page
to include not just links to the snow conditions pages of the various resorts around Alberta and BC, but also to include graphs of the snowfall this season. Hopefully this will give our users an easier time deciding where to spend their weekend with less page navigation.
For now the aesthetics of the graphs are pretty basic, and we will probably look to improve them long term, so be sure to check back.
Yesterday I also updated most of our SnowSeekers go-guides
(iPhone apps) to include past snowfall information. So, when available, our apps will now also provide users with snowfall in the past 24 hours, 48 hours, and 7 days, as well as snowfall to date and base packed snow on the mountain. This has been one of most requested features for our apps so I was very glad to finally drop it in. Go-guides that have this functionality currently include all apps except for Comox - Mount Washington, and the Vancouver mountains (Cypress, Grouse, and Seymour).
In the future I am also looking to add additional stats to our apps and snow conditions page including lifts in operation and open runs. So if you love getting information on the conditions at your preferred hill and getting updates to your favorite apps, keep checking back!
