A strong storm is blowing through the Sierra Nevada right now and snow levels are dropping, which should translate into to a good dose of powder for pre-spring conditions. Before you pack the skis into the car and head for the hill, bookmark these great mobile Web sites to keep up with ski and driving conditions:
NVski.mobi: Created by the state of Nevada, this useful site offers updated resort reports with information like accumulation totals, weather conditions and base depth information. When the snow is coming down, conditions are always changing. Keep an eye on your favorite resorts with the searchable features.
NVroads.mobi: Although crews are on top of road clearing in and around the Sierra Nevada, conditions can change with big snow flurries. Nevada Department of Transportation alerts are channeled through this site to provide updates on slowdowns, chain and snow tire controls and other traffic news instantly, so drivers know what to expect around the bend.
These mobile sites work great with the iPhone Safari browser, but they are also compatible with any Web-enabled portable device. For tutorial information, check out the embedded video by the Nevada Commission on Tourism below:
