Lead Avalanche Forecaster

All superlatives apply to SnowObs! It has improved our decision making, archiving and efficiency.

Avalanche Forecaster

Snow Obs is much more than just a SWAG compliant weather observations database. With it’s ability to pull MesoWest station data as well as custom ingest of private weather stations, we are routinely able to save 10-15 minutes during our morning avalanche forecast that used to be focused on data entry and can now be redirected to snowpack and stability assessment.
