View temperature, 24 hour snowfall, and total snow base data updated hourly for your favorite Pacific Northwest ski areas. For each resort, you can also view webcams, three day NOAA forecast with weather icons, and useful weather-related links. 

Open the menu at the bottom of the home screen for lots of options including metric. You can also pin multiple live tiles for your favorite resorts to the home screen and you'll get updated temp, 24 hour snowfall, and total snow base data along with a web cam image! You can also enable news alert notifications which will arrive even when the app is not running. Live tiles flip to show the forecast on the back side of the tile.

Resorts included in the app are: Whistler Blackcomb, Mt. Baker, Hurricane Ridge, Stevens Pass, Summit at Snoqualmie and Alpental, Mission Ridge, Crystal Mt., White Pass, Mt. Hood Meadows, Mt. Hood Ski Bowl, and Timberline

Note that this app will NOT be expanding to include national resorts because it uses the Northwest Avalanche Center mountain sensors which report temperature and snowfall every hour. All resorts covered by NWAC are included in this app already. There are other great apps (like the Bing Weather App) which provide you with more generic data about every resort in the world and give you weather stats that update once a day.

Visit http://cascadeskier.com to find the app on other platforms and to see the CascadeSkier clothing line.

Version 3.8.1 fixes a bug which would sometimes cause metric live tiles to revert to imperial.
Version 3.8 adds support for Celsius and metric units and fixes a bug which would cause the app to crash if background tasks were disabled.

    Love it. Would be cooler if Alpental was broken out by itself.
