Meteo Ski is a brand new avalanche warning app, designed by the French weather agency Meteo France, that is designed to be able to send skiiers and hikers timely warnings about the possibility of avalanches occurring in their vicinity.

Targeted specifically for use on the slopes of the Pyrenees and the French Alps in the south west region of the country, the app gathers and compiles data from over 100 ski patrol staff in order to be able to offer warnings and alerts about avalanche risks. It also offers other less alarming information such as slope maps, opening and closing times and ski resort locations.

Ultimately, this ski warning app can not only help save lives and prevent disaster, but can also provide a more streamlined mountain experience for tourists.
