    Added some new things to the Weather/Webcam page:

    Improved weather stations using the MESOWEST interface for:
    Sherman Pass
    Kootenay Pass
    Lookout Pass

    GOES-WEST GeoColor:
    High resolution color satellite for the West Coast, zoomed on the Pacific NW. Shows most recent (5min) and clicking on it will load a 12.5mb 4 hour loop. Replaced the 1km visible for Spokane area that became unavailable recently.

    Snowpit data:
    Pulls local snow pit profiles from Snowpilot.org (a bit download intensive as it preloads all the pit images, will improve fixed!)

    Glad to hear suggestions or if there's something else you use as part of your trip planning that we could add.

    Something new for next season.. Training Grounds camera! Anyone want to put up a snow stake this summer? :D


    Probably will add a few more cameras soon.

    Whitewater cams would be a nice add.

    I'll see what I can do.. I'd love to add a bunch more cameras but am not sure how to organize them yet without creating a huge page to view. Any thoughts?

    Another thing I'll add for next season is the ability to rewatch more than just 12 hours on the timelapse. For tour planning purposes: would it be valuable to rewatch something like last day or two of daylight? Anything longer? (I will have it drop the dark/nighttime frames)

  9. You could organize them by state? Just one humble idea.

    I really like the idea of be able to rewatch a webcam timelapse... that'd be amazing. Seems like two days would be the sweet spot... just my off the cuff thoughts. Thanks dude for thinking like this!
