The intent of this app is to educate and to hopefully save lives of those who venture out into our beautiful backcountry here in Utah. I use this app before heading out as step 1 towards safety and my friends do as well.&

Fix the app please!
It’s so hard to maneuver this app. While I do like what they tried to do with the update, there are just too many bugs and layout issues. Why do I have to turn my phone sideways to view the app now? When I try to view event map photos, it doesn’t show you, and when you fiddle with it enough to get the photo to show up it’s incredibly small. Please update the app and debug! Thank you for all you do!

Kinda works
Everything works well until you click on a zone and then it gives you options to look at. You try clicking on an option nothing happens. Use online versions all the time but doesn’t work on smartphone

Great app, WA map stopped indicating color
I love this app but something broke in 2021 winter. Map for WA no longer shows forecast colors, but when you tap on sub-region it still gives correct forecast. Web version still works as expected.

Was a great app until they removed CBAC forecast
I loved using this app, super user friendly and simple to get the info you needed. Then they updated and removed the Crested Butte area forecast for some reason. Now I basically don’t use it at all because it serves no purpose for me. What a bummer

Great app!
I live in colorado and love using this app more than the CAIC app itself. Would highly recommend downloading this app if avalanches are something you like to follow.

Not functioning for CO
It’s Nov 2020 and it’s snowing in CO. I use the CAIC mobile app as my go to and decided to try this app out. Unfortunately it’s not functioning for CO yet :(. It also separates the S and N San Juan zones where the CAIC has then together on their app. This is probably why there’s and error “404” showing when you click on these zones. Admin should fix this.

Hard to find WA reports
I want to like this app. I look at WA state avy conditions. This app makes it hard to find that information. I can find it, but it’s inconvenient, like it doesn’t like NWAC data or the data’s not formatted correctly. BC zones work, why not WA?? Despondent. Fix my problems. Please. I will love you. I’m using iOS 14.2, latest version of avy forecast as of today.

What happened to this app?
The entire Cascade Range is shown on the map as a grey “No Rating”. When you click on a specific region, it takes you not to that specific region, but to a list of all of the regions, and when you find the one you’re looking for, the avy risk is orange/considerable or red/severe, not grey. This app is dangerous to use for a novice!

Multiple issues
Offline cache feature not working for NWAC zones and Mt Hood zone doesn’t populate even when connected to internet. Would love to give this app 5 stars for what they’re trying to accomplish, but the execution is significantly poor for the NWAC regions at least.

No color coding in Washington state
I've used this app for years, and love it. But this year there is no color coding for "at a glance" forecast -- it is all gray. And when I tap on a region, I get all the forecasts for the entire state starting with the Olympics. Canada looks and works, but who is in charge of Washington? You're not doing your job !!!

Hasn’t been updated in years so doesn’t support the newer phones. I now use backcountry beta app which has the same avalanche forecasts and more features.

So great
At first I was looking for a CAIC app for Colorado's snow pack but had to pay for that. But this app is so much better. It shows a map of the area your phone is closest to and gives an avi forecast for the range with colored avi ratings. If you click on a range it pulls up the forecast for that region. For Colorado obviously it's CAIC but they gave compiled all the forecasting websites in to the map so when you click on a area that shows up. It's great for stuff you ski every day and also great for traveling to ski stuff you have never seen before.

Great app for folks planning trips!
This is a great app that gives a quick summary of conditions across a large area. Well done! My only minor issue is the hard and fast difference in conditions displayed at national borders. I LOL when i see for example that Danger is Considerable in Southern BC and Moderate 2 miles away in Northern WA? But that's not something you can fix - the regional forecasters need to work that out Again, well done!

Simple and Informative
This app makes access to important avi information so simple!. Its the next step in avi awareness... consolidating the work of professional forecasters into one interactive map. As an outdoor instructor and backcountry skier, the importance of this app is clear. Simple access to critical information makes everyone more aware. Thanks.

Sweet App
Just downloaded it and give it 5 stars just for the idea. It appears that as long as you view the detailed Avy reports for the zone or zones of interest that they are also cached! I can't wait to test it further. I would pay for this app, nice work Seth!

Wished I would have found this earlier! Getting emails from forecast centers is nice to read while sipping coffee but this is a great tool that allows you to check multiple areas quickly. Nice to have the big picture right at your fingertips.
