Technology is a part of mountain life these days. Whether it be cell phone reception on every part of the mountain or goggles that tell you your speed and location, technology is changing the way we ski. With that in mind, I wanted to look at a few apps for Tahoe.
I figured I’d start with the newly updated app for Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows. When you open the app, the first thing you notice is the great layout. It’s aesthetically appealing and the home screen is easy to navigate. It’s got what you’d expect from a resort app, such as trail maps and lift and run closures.
Though basic in design, the Tahoe Snow Map app is perfect for maximizing your days on mountain during a snowy winter. The home screen is a simple map of Lake Tahoe with resorts marked. Clicking on each resort shows recent snow totals, current totals all sortable by time period. For those looking to get the most out of a storm day, this app should prove invaluable. | iTunes or GooglePlay
