The First Tracks Powder Alarm App from Helly Hansen helps skiers and snowboarders keep tabs on the weather, for the purposes of getting in on the best conditions for hitting the slopes. As well as working as a simple alarm clock, what’s neat about the app is that it lets users set a second “powder alarm” for an earlier wake-up call if snow happens to fall overnight. This way, skiers and snowboarders who use this app are the first to know if there’s fresh power out there.
A bonus to using this app is that Helly Hansen holds weekly giveaways of Helly Hansen gear for fans that share snowy images to Instagram with the hashtag "HHFirstTracks."
The First Tracks Powder Alarm App is free to download for Apple and Android devices.
