The opening page of Ski Lodge shows all of the favorite resorts you have saved. When you tap on the resort name, the app displays an attractive page of options. The first button is the trail map. This is an essential tool for exploring a mountain that you're not familiar with and something that is missing from other snow report apps. The next is a graph that shows difficulty of the trails and an approximate breakdown of trail type — you can see at a glance if a resort is mostly bunny slopes or double diamonds. Snow Lodge also shows the number of trails that are open as well as the amount of lifts that are open.
With Ski Lodge you can check out live webcams and look at photos of the mountain or tap to visit the ski resort's Web site. Ski Lodge will also take you to Google Maps so you can get directions or let you give the mountain a call at the tap of a button.
Ski Lodge has an option to search for mountains nearby or browse resorts all over the USA and Canada.
Another feature that I haven't seen on any other snow report app is the ski news that Ski Lodge offers. It gives you the chance to check out what is going on in the ski industry at the moment. You can also choose where you want the news to come from, such as Google ski news and onthesnow.com.
