So, have you caught Apple's brand new iPhone television and Web commercial? Here's how it opens: "What's great about the iPhone is that if you want to check snow conditions on the mountain, there's an app for that."
What's the app? It's Snow Reports provided by OnTheSnow.com, of course, the #1 most visited pure snow sports Web site in the world. The app costs $1.99 and you can purchase it by clicking the Mobile OnTheSnow tab on the top right of the home page or directly from the Apple iPhone Apps Store. Look for the ad on major television programs such as "Law And Order", "Late Night With Conan O'Brien," and many more, as well as on the Web.
The app offers the ability to create a personalized report of your favorite ski resorts worldwide. Select from among more than 2,000 resorts and track up to 16 of your favorite resorts.
You'll find out if the resort is open or closed, check surface conditions, new snow, and base depths. A full report, weather conditions and forecasts and cams are one click away.
It doesn't matter what language you speak, either. The reports are available in English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Norwegian, and Swedish.
