The state of Colorado happens to be home to over 50 mountains that are considered '14ers' in that they stand taller than 14,000 feet, and many of these mountains are very popular among hikers, which is why a new mountain forecast has been released to offer comprehensive and updated weather forecasts that hikers can utilize to plan their hikes.
The fact of the matter is that heavy wind, rain and snow might be an inconvenience when you live in the city, but they can be instantly life-threatening when you're 10,000 feet up a mountain. This is where the OpenSummit mountain forecast app comes in. The app allows you to access hourly weather forecasts free of charge, and you can even compile a list of your favorite mountains to receive pertinent forecasts.
By using the power of real and updated weather information, the OpenSummit app helps hikers optimize their expeditions and stay safe doing it.
