Palo Alto, Calif., - WINDY APP, a top-10 grossing weather app globally, today announced the brand-new Snow Profile, a customizable stack of features for winter sports.
Based on trusted weather data sources such as National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), WINDY APP for iOS and Android now offers freezing-level charts, precipitation forecasts and comparisons, temperatures at different altitudes, snowfall rates, and other essential information for winter sports. Users can also get necessary details on popular ski resorts such as the number of lifts, ski trails, and maps.
Weather forecasts are beautifully visualized with animation and graphics helping professionals and beginners easily navigate the conditions and choose the perfect time and place for their next ride. The world's most popular ski resorts are already available in the app, and new ones are added regularly. Users can customize forecasts, add spots to favorites, create wind alerts, and, most importantly, join local communities to get real-time updates, tips and tricks and connect with like-minded people. Each spot has a Special Offers section allowing users to take advantage of discounts on coaching, services, gear, and accommodation.
"We are very excited to welcome the snow sports community to the WINDY APP family, a global community of people who can't imagine their lives without outdoor sports and are always happy to help each other,” the WINDY APP team said. “We have designed the Snow Profile to give our users accurate and customizable forecasts in a convenient, yet visually exciting way, while also encouraging them to share their tips and ultimately have the best experience on the spot.”
The Snow Profile will be constantly updated with new features. In January 2019, WINDY APP users will be able to set up snow alerts, compare data from different sources, create and access snow reports, and, last but not least, check avalanche reports—essential for safety.
Named one of the best apps for surfers by SurferToday, WINDY APP offers detailed and customizable weather forecasts for water and snow sports like surfing, windsurfing, kiting, sailing, fishing, paragliding, skiing, snowboarding, snowkiting, etc. Reliable data in combination with beautiful animated graphics and active communities in more than 40,000 spots globally, allowed WINDY APP to become a top-10 grossing weather app on the App Store worldwide.
