Surfers live by waves; snowboarders and skiers live by snow. Now you can let your smart phone wake you up based on whether or not fresh powder has dropped, thanks to the Helly Hansen First Tracks App ($free). Available in both the Apple App Store and Google Play store, First Tracks allows you to set two alarms – one for if it does snow, and one for if it doesn’t. The weather is then automatically tracked through the night for you, and in the event you’re blessed with fresh powder, the earlier of the two alarms gets you out the door at the crack of dawn. No fresh powder? Sleep in and hit the mountain a little later. If you want it, head over to Helly Hansen to download First Tracks for free.
