We all came together to work on this application based on Alicia and Amber's idea and desire to display accurate data from the Northwest Avalanche Center, also known as "NWAC". We are using the NWAC API in our application to give users an easy to read, abridged summary of avalanche conditions at the most popular mountain areas around the Seattle area. We really enjoyed working together to make this application possible, and hope that it will be used to keep skiers/hikers safe when you travel into the mountains for some snowy fun.
