Our story is fairly simple. We wanted to create the best weather forecasts for the mountains, period.

This began when Joel Gratz and Andrew Murray created OpenSnow in 2011 to provide local commentary and automated data to skiers and riders to help them find the deepest powder. OpenSnow has now grown to become the go-to resource for over 3 million skiers and riders around the world.

In 2016, we launched our summer service, OpenSummit, to provide hourly weather forecasts for hikers, bikers, and climbers across the United States. The forecast data includes hourly precipitation, lightning, temperature, wind speed & direction, and cloud cover for thousands of locations at the elevation of the trails.
