Let it snow: Snow Reports for iPhone


It's late October in ski country, and that means skiers and snowboarders are getting their gear ready, trying to get into shape, and starting to watch the skies for signs of snow.

Snow Reports, from Eddit Incorporated, provides the ability to create your own personalized lists of your favorite ski resorts, and then track the snow conditions and weather at those resorts. Snow Reports can access information for over 2,000 ski areas around the world through's online service.

Ski areas are listed by region and state or province, and a tap on a state or province name provides a detailed list of all the resorts in that area. A red or green "Closed / Open" sign provides immediate feedback on whether a resort is ready for visitors, and an attractive interface provides base and new snow depths.

A quick tap on the resort page displays a full condition report for a ski area, or upcoming weather conditions. A video is available demonstrating highlights of Snow Reports, as well as a Flickr pool of screenshots.

Snow Reports (click opens iTunes) is available now for US$1.99.
