We’ve made some exciting improvements to the forecast layout. These changes aim to streamline information and enhance accessibility by consolidating how information is presented and adding images to the forecast.

Users can now simply scroll to read all sections of the forecast, including the avalanche, snowpack, and weather summaries without having to navigate multiple tabs. By combining all the information into one scrollable format, we hope to see an increase in the number of people who read all the available information, particularly among our less experienced users.

In addition to streamlining the layout, photos are now included in the forecasts when relevant. We know that visual information can be helpful, and this addition will help enhance the experience of using the forecast for many. The inclusion of photos allows forecasters to highlight avalanche problems, terrain and travel advice, and weather information in a clear, concise, and easy-to-understand way.
