The Snow Report

The Snow Report by North Face is a features-rich application that makes it easy to know slope conditions. You can save the resorts that matter the most to you or scan a huge list of mountains to find what you're looking for.

I like that the app makes it easy to find the official Twitter app as well as a search stream of all tweets talking about the resort. I could see that coming in handy, especially at a new mountain.
