If you're a skier, February and March mean there's still time to hit the slopes. Depending on where you live or plan to vacation, you could squeeze in some skiing in April, May and even June. The point is, don't panic.

Still, there's no worse feeling than getting there to find there's no snow, or conditions are better suited to hot cocoa in the cafe than the ski lift. So, you have to be prepared. Before you spend hours packing your car and driving, use your smartphone to get updated weather conditions and forecasts where you're headed.

With OnTheSnow's Ski & Snow Report, you will have information about more than 2,000 ski areas. The Ski & Snow Report tracks weather at resorts around the world, including Aspen, Jackson Hole, Verbier and Whistler.

No one wants to ski on snow that's iced up. So, you can set up the app to receive alerts when a ski area's getting fresh snow and powder.

There are user reviews of resorts, along with photos and continually updated ski conditions. There is also webcam footage from some resorts. So, you can check out a place before you make a long trip.

Need new equipment? The Ski & Snow Report has buying guides, for help with purchasing decisions. These guides are complete with user reviews. If you're looking for a good deal on ski resort tickets, you can find those, too.
