onX Offroad Launches Snow Mode

Releasing new features and thousands of trails for snow-loving motorists

onX, a pioneer in outdoor digital navigation, added a snowmobile-specific experience to the onX Offroad App. Premium users can now toggle from the App’s well-known “Dirt Mode” to the new “Snow Mode,” accessing 140,000 miles of snowmobile trails in 30 U.S. states, slope angle overlays, and localized avalanche forecasts for an unparalleled winter experience.

An industry leader, onX Offroad is known for its robust GPS platform, mapping over 425,000 miles of dirt trails, 975 million acres of public land, and over 500,000 points of interest–places like campsites, non-ethanol fuel stations, trail heads, scenic vistas, breweries, and more. 

“By adding Snow Mode to onX Offroad, we’re extending the stoke year-round,” said onX Offroad General Manager Rory Edwards. “Whether you’re in Montana, Minnesota, or Maine, a tap of a button gives riders the information they need to shred the slopes and rip the trails.”

With Snow Mode, onX Offroad users can navigate winter terrain with added confidence and safety information. By seeing local avalanche forecasts and slope angle overlays in their favorite zones, riders can make a plan for the day with snow conditions and terrain in mind. They can also view hourly weather forecasts that illustrate wind speed and direction, temperature highs and lows, and inches of precipitation right in the App. Winter-specific points of interest, like snow parking areas and warming huts, also dot the map.

Other onX Offroad features like Tracker and Waypoints help riders remember where they’ve been, and places they don’t want to forget–like access points or playgrounds. If visibility or conditions change, App users can rely on Offline Maps to see their location and get home safely, even without cell service. Lastly, land management layers and various map views (including 3D) give a comprehensive view of terrain, and illustrate where snowmobilers can legally ride.

Over the next few months, onX Offroad will continue to add snowmobile trails to the Snow Mode experience. onX encourages users to get in touch with suggestions of areas where they’d like to see more snowmobile trail coverage by emailing us at help@onxmaps.com.

To access Snow Mode, onX Offroad users must have a premium membership. However, avalanche forecasts will be available in the App for every user. For more information, visit www.onxmaps.com or download onX Offroad in the Apple App or Google Play stores.
