    Fellow Pre Owner and Ski Enthuastist,

    There should be a Snow/Ski Report App that not only includes just the weather but also could possibly have trail maps to most Ski Resorts across the nation or the world. Let me know what you think?

    I just recently was at the Apple Store. My gf bought a iphone and I was looking at there apps for skiing as i suggested for the pre. There are tons! So please let me know if there are any out there. I think it would be a great app for hardcore skiers and boarders that own a Pre!

    How about adding in GPS info for elevation, maybe mapping speeds/routes taken, chairlift speeds, ability to meet friends at some location/time, track friends, race friends?, race same trail again and again, against yourself or others? See photos others have taken from the resorts? Discounts/deals? Trade gear? Share rides?

    Wow, this would be cool, if anyone did any of this. I'd pay $$$

    +1 Would be a killer app. GPS overlay of a slope map would be great.

    Update all!

    I can tell you that I've started development of, at minimum, a ski-conditions app. I think some of the other things are a bit far off, but a decent app with resort lookup and trail conditions will at least be a start.

    One problem I've found is a lack of good sources for data. Most of the sites/companies that report ski condition data don't seem to have public/open/free APIs. I've found one that broadcasts their state-by-state data using RSS feeds, so I'm going to start there.

    Hi HockeyPre, et al.:

    I have spent some time on this--was working at a decent clip, got side tracked by the introduction of the Ares development tools (thinking this will be a huge help), the holidays and, of course skiing!

    The biggest thing I'm still looking for, and hoping folks here might be able to help me find, is a ski conditions/reporting site that has an open API to draw info from. As I'd mentioned previously, I've found RSS feeds that I can use from this site (below), but I'm looking for something a little more robust.

    Awesome Leez, keep it up! Keep us updated. I can't wait!


    BTW I was browsing around the iphone ski apps and found a couple that look great and I think these could be webOS friendly or making something similar.

    Ski Lodge App

    RealSki App

    Pretty Cool Apps. Ski Lodge I think is a app that I think that could work on the pre or something similar. Snow Conditions, Trail Maps, Lift Ticket Prices, and weather reports. A Complete Ski App for the WebOS.

    I have even submitted it to the new "App Idea Box" app. So if you have that app bring the love to this app. Its a very useful app!

    Any updates on this?

    www .snow-forecast. com is the one of the most popular snow report site.

    There is flash based application using their snow reports can be seen here:
    www .skiciyiz.biz
    At the top of the header just click on the resorts like Kartalkaya,Uludağ,Erciyes etc..

    Almost all of these sites get their information from one source - snocountry. I didn't know if any other developer was looking into this, so I contacted snocountry, and access to the feeds is $550 to $2500 per season, depending on the level of data.
    Unfortunately, that's too much to risk on webos right now.

    If one of you skiers knows of a feed (rss, xml) that the data can be retrieved from, without scraping a website to get it, I could make the app. Scraping is unreliable, and technically illegal. PM me if you know of anything.
