It's here. Winter can really make its entrance now. The new version of wepowder is live. We've been working on it for quite a long time with our team and we're convinced that we can provide you more (and better) deep days. These are the most important changes:
We'll be focusing more and more on weather. And more specifically: the weather in the Alps. That is why we have expanded our database to over 800 ski areas and more than 1400 villages in the Alps. You can check out the snowfall, but also the temperature (at 2 meters above the ground and 850 hPa), precipitation and clouds.
Next to a lot of data about the weather, you can also find a lot of information about the terrain on the site. You can get a quick impression of the altitude, slope angle and slope exposition for almost every ski area in the Alps. Check out the ski area pages of Livigno Mottolino or Les Grands Montets for example.
wepowder Pro gives you access to all of the above data up to 14 days in. This will be a paid service (one year for less than half the price of a lift pass for a day), simply because we use Google's supercomputers every night to generate all the weather maps for you. Of course, wepowder remains available to everybody with the 6-day forecast, but if you want to support us, that will be appreciated. To give you a good impression of the possibilities of wepowder Pro, everybody will get access to wepowder Pro for a week for free! Just log in with your account.
We'll keep working on updates and bug fixes the next couple of weeks. If you have bugs that you want to report, comments or other requests, please tell us in the comments.
Let's enjoy winter!
