Craw_Daddyweird it works for me. the name of the app is Avalanche Forecasts. It just summarizes the avalanche forecast data that is put out by all of the avalanche centers in North America. They all use that color system to show the risk of avalanches occurring. for instance, you can go to the Colorado avalanche information center website and see all of our mountains are yellow right now. The system rates the risk on a scale of 1 to 5 with 1 being green, 2 being yellow, 3 being orange, 4 being red, and 5 being black. Avalanche centers only publish general forecasts so you still need to use your best judgment and be aware of the conditions locally. but pretty much anyone who is serious about backcountry has this app. I had to download it as part of my aiare 1 course.
Just to clarify this:
Avalanche Forecasts is a cool app that just combines the data and forecasts from a bunch of avy centers onto a geotagged map. So you can get a general idea of the avy hazard in a bunch of areas without having to navigate to their specific websites.
But that color-coded Low-Extreme spectrum is really just the tiniest part of the overall report. Please, please, please use that as a starting point, but also read the entire report for the area you're looking at. Avy hazard changes with aspect and elevation. Reading the full report will give you a better idea of what problems you're dealing with, and where they're most likely to be found.
In addition, try to read that report every day. Keep up with what's going on with the snowpack, knowing that history is invaluable for decision making.
I'm sure that's all stuff you guys have heard before, but you really don't want folks going "Oh look, the app says where I am is yellow, it's good to go!" without consuming more information.
