Snow Forecasts & Ski Reports

OpenSnow is your trusted source for the most advanced snow forecast, snow report, high-resolution map overlays, and ski conditions information.

View Essential Powder Chasing Tools

Finding the deepest snow at the right time requires data, skill, and a bit of luck. We can’t help with getting lucky, but we can provide everything else, including outlooks from multiple weather forecast models, hourly details, mountain cams, and the latest snow reports.

Receive Expert Guidance From Local Forecasters

Now you have a personal weather forecaster guiding you to the best snow. Our local experts write a new “Daily Snow” forecast each day for regions around the US and Canada. Instead of spending hours sifting through weather and snow data, you can now get the inside scoop in just a few minutes.

Compare Mountain Forecasts

Choosing which ski resort has the best snow can feel overwhelming. With OpenSnow, deciding where to go is easy. Compare the latest snow forecasts, ski conditions, and cams for your favorite mountains on a single screen in just a few seconds.

Track Storms With High-Resolution Maps

We make it easy (and beautiful) to see if there is snow heading toward your favorite mountains, along with how much snow fell over the past 24 hours, season-to-date, and snow depth. You can also view 2-day forecast animations for precipitation, wildfire smoke, wind gust, cloud cover, and temperature, as well as the latest avalanche forecast and conditions for the past 7 days.

10 Years In, Trusted by Millions

As skiing (and snowboarding) meteorologists, we started OpenSnow to make it easy for our friends (and their friends) to find powder. Now over 10 years later, we reach millions of people and still obsess about making the forecast more accurate and creating features to make finding powder easy. In other words, we love snow as much as you do.

Climate Change Commitment

Temperatures are warming and that’s not good for snow. That’s why we partner with Stripe to send 1% of our All-Access sales to innovative projects that directly remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and ensure its sequestration in secure, long-term storage. This alone will not solve climate change, but it’s a start.

"The OpenSnow app is an indispensable tool. It is well worth the All-Access upgrade considering you get access to a 10-day HIGHLY accurate forecast. It's a small price to pay for finding fresh powder."
– Pauline, Android User
"Weather forecasting for the mountains takes extra focus, analysis, and precision, which is exactly what OpenSnow provides."
– Cody Townsend, Pro Skier
"Any weather app can give a mediocre forecast for a mountain town, but only OpenSnow provides a good idea of actual mountain ski conditions. As a powder hunter that hits the slopes >30 days per season, OpenSnow is my go-to source for planning where I ski."
– Jon, iOS User
