Avalanche Forecasts

First things first—before you even step foot into the backcountry, every avalanche professional recommends checking the forecast. With comprehensive and regularly updated information during the season about conditions, snowpack, and much more, a forecast is where every winter backcountry adventure needs to begin. With onX, you can access avalanche forecasts in-app for your backyard zone or an area that beckons your imagination.

Slope Angle

Based on the avalanche conditions for that day, you’ll need to make a call whether you’re safe to get sendy or you’ll need to keep it cool on the lower angle terrain. This decision is made easier with the onX Slope Angle layer which features an overlaid  color gradient that outlines the steepness of the terrain onto the map. Always know what’s above, around, and below you as avalanches propagate not just from the slope you’re on.
