REI has teamed up with mobile application developer Zumobi to design a snow report app for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
The application delivers reports from the US, Canada, Europe, Argentina, Australia, Chile and New Zealand. In total, over 200 resorts are available, and users can pick their 12 favorite to be added to the cool rotating menu.
Resort information is very impressive – you’ll get the latest snowfall, current snow depth, temperatures, conditions, the status of lifts and trails, and even the latest Tweets made by the resort.
In addition to this, you can also access maps, a five day forecast, webcams and contact information.
Of course, since REI commissioned the app, you can also find your nearest REI store, follow REI Tweets and go shopping for new gear, right inside the app.
The best part is the price – free. You’ll find the application in the app store by searching REI or by clicking this link (iTunes URL)
