PowDay is your ski-day companion for Whistler Blackcomb. Like a good ski buddy, PowDay wakes you at 6:30a.m. when it has snowed enough to make it worthwhile to be on the first chair in the morning.
New Snow Alert
PowDay lets you choose the time and amount of snow needed to wake you up You can select the number of inches required to make it worth your time to wake at this most uncivil hour:
- 10 cm - It’s going to be good
- 20 cm - It’s going to be great
- 30 cm - Do you have a pulse?
- 40 cm - Dude, if you don't move you are obviously not a skier.
Live Lift Status Notifications
PowDay also notifies you of chair openings so you don't have to wait in lift lines. Set the app to notify you as each chair opens; like a best friend standing in line who calls you when loading begins.
Live WebCam and Temperature
In addition to the up-to-the-minute lift status, PowDay also provides temperature information, and even live WebCam images so you'll be able to check the visibility from the top of the Peak chair on those cloudy days.
PowDay now shows the 5 day Alpine weather forecast.
PowDay can notify you at night before you go to bed if there is any snow in the forecast. Of course, you can choose the time and number of cm needed.
If you have a Hairfarmers addiction, PowDay keeps you updated on where they are playing for Après Ski. Other bands and bars are included too.

Whistler Snow Stake (aka SN❆W RULER)

When using PowDay with an Apple Watch, turn off mirroring PowDay notifications to watch, otherwise you wont get audible notifications when lifts open or close.
GPS Run Tracking
PowDay does not do GPS tracking of your ski day, I recommend Slopes
