On your page about Nozawa Onsen http://www.snow-forecast.com/resorts/Nozawa-Onsen, you have the nearest train station as Togarinozawaonsen. It's not, it's Iiyama.
Separately (and maybe this isn't fixable...), your forecasts of temperature and relative amounts of snowfall/precipitation are pretty good. But your algorithm consistently underestimates the absolute amount of snowfall in Nozawa Onsen by 20%-50%. This has consistently been the case since I started using your service 3 years ago. Otherwise, very helpful and useful service. Thank you.

Cypress Mountain has been reporting 0.3-1.1 degrees C on their web page for the past couple days. The forecast on snow-forecast.com has indicated 6-11 degrees over the same time period.
Why isn't the forecast updated when reported temperatures differ by so much? The forecast states min 10, max 11, and was issued today. Meanwhile at the mountain it's about 1 degree C. This has been the case for about 3 days and the discrepancy continues.
I don't expect forecasts to always be right, but I do expect them to be updated so that at least the current conditions are correct.

We moved from the UK to the US and my iPhone app has stopped working since the IOS 11 release. Does not appear that your app is available in the US Apple App store. Is there a reason why we can't get it here?
We have been a long time supporter and love your temperature snow forecasts as they are in amazing detail.
Regards, Kathy Roll
Response from the editor: Hi Kathy, thank you for expressing your support. The updated app will be available very soon.

I have been using the snow-forecast for these couple of years and appreciate very useful and helpful forecast information for my ski planning, however I am afraid something wrong in the calculation for Japanese skiing area for these several weeks.
The forecast and the actual weather is completely different, that I have never experienced in the past forecast on snow-forecast.
Snow season in Japan will end soon, I hope it is fixed by the next season! Thanks.

I am quite happy with your forecasts even though sometimes they do overestimate precipitation as written below for Zermatt e.g. by another user. But regarding the different weather models and the tricky situation at the alpine main ridge (like Zermatt, Saas Fee) in southernly winds, I understand it's almost impossible to find the perfect solution. One more thing: Stuhleck (Austria) has its lowest point at 782 m and not at 1469 m as is said here (see http://www.seilbahntechnik.net/de/lifts/place/spital_am_semmering/index.htm).
Keep on rockin', best regards from Vienna - Stefan
[note from the editor: thank you for sending us your feedback; heights for Stuhleck have now been updated.]

I live at Mt Baldy, BC and have used your site for snow for years and spread your "gospel" for years! You have always been the most accurate snow site for Mt Baldy B.C. until this December? What has happened? You have been waaaay off since late December!! Please get it back!

Snowbear from Canada
Once again, we are here with family, and the snow is awesome There is now a larger tube park (fun for all) and a carpet ride for the bunny hill; no holding on just walk on. The snow is awesome. Even off the yellow chair you could find knee deep powder. A great family mountain with something for everyone. Staff are great. Little change but anticipating big things soon.

Benjamin Geisler from Germany
I just wanted to say briefly that the weather model you are using continuously (and heavily!) overestimates the expected snowfall for Zermatt in the Alps! Sometimes grotesque.
Otherwise, I'm very satisfied with your service!
[note from the editor: thank you for sending us your feedback. We shall do our best to investigate the discrepancy.]

Arild Pedersen from Norway
Thank you for a very useful site that I've been using a lot the past three years.
I would like to report what must be a false snow depth indication for Swizerland, Veysonnaz. It says 140cm (top). Yesterday I went all over the area (over to Verbier and back) and wonder where they found 140cm snow depth. It was more like 40cm with lots of rocks "everywhere".
Should be verified :-)
[note from the editor: thank you for sending us your feedback regarding a snow depth report at Veysonnaz. We are currently trying to improve this service; open to users of the site. However, the following page reports 140cm at the top of part of the area. http://www.veysonnaz.com/fr/ski/installation-ski-televeysonnaz_0-333]

I would like to report a 'bug' regarding the positioning of 'Balea Lake' on the map. I believe this is the cause for wrong forecasts for this resort.
The correct coordinates: 45.602153, 24.614610
[note from the editor: thank you for sending us these coordinates. A month of membership has been added to your account.]

Have been very disappointed with your forecasting. 9 day forecasts are always wildly optimistic and invariably wrong. Given that these are what I am paying for you guys really need to tighten up your modelling.
I will not be renewing, and will not be recommending your site.

I would like to thank you for the site, is my go to 1st source of info and estimation for my snowboard-trips :)
In the past 2 years I have started to use it also as a go to source for my local forecast. I can zoom on Romania and I know where Bucharest is and i can make a very good impression for precipitations, temperature, wind, clouds. It's graphical, with a 6 hour interval and at least for short term works great.
What I think you can improve is:
- accessibility (the app is not that great, it needs to be fast and better designed)
Of course the forecast is more important than the design as what people look is reliability but I guess a nicely designed site/app will make me forgot the other variants (accuweather, weather underground, weather.com, etc)
Keep it up!

Way to rip off an established website's name and purpose.
Too bad your site sucks and snowforecast.com has always been the best.
[from one of the team: please do explain the reason(s) why you feel so unhappy with our service at www.snow-forecast.com. Some text has been edited.]
[from site co-founder: Dear Bryson, thanks for your comment, but we are not a rip-off site. Snow-Forecast.com first appeared on the internet in 1999, and prior to that evolved from an academic IP address at Cardiff University. The other site you refer to seems to have appeared later according to archive.org. NR]

andrew pugh from Canada
I like the snow forecast at http://www.snow-forecast.com/resorts/Whistler-Blackcomb/6day/mid but I need info on the snow depth/condition in relation to the different chair lifts/gondolas. eg. I can find no reference to where the Emerald Express lower end is or the upper Creekside gondola entrance so I am unsure if skiing to these points is possible. This sort of info would be nice in addition to the freezing level that you already provide.
Note from the team: we value your feedback but this level of detailed information should be sought from the resort itself.

Paid a 1 month pass and was never able to access my account.
Sent several email to the helpdesk, to recover a new password, etc. without any reply.
Just wasted my money.
Clearly I feel I have been mugged !
I am definitely not happy nor would recommend the paid services.

I was looking how the weather was in Javalambre from the android app when I noticed that it was showing the Argentina flag instead of the Spanish one.
I also would like to thank you for your weather predictions and help. Thanks.

I am after some information about what to expect in St Gervais, over the Christmas period. Will the lifts, shops, restaurants etc be open and is there usually sufficient snow?

I'd like to ask for a name, that has been written in montain-forecast section.
It calls Basque mountains to Castro Valnera. This is a big mistaque. Castro Valnera is situated beetwen Cantabria and Burgos, so is Cantabria or Burgos how is in the map beside.
Thank you for you website. I'm a snow-forecast fanatic.

Hi I´m going to spend my winter holidays in Austria at the <a href="http://www.hintertuxerhof.at/" title="Tuxer Glacier">Tuxer Glacier</a> this year. The lifts are already open. So I would recommend this place for you guys, if you want a warranty for snow.

nikos from greece from Chile
I am in chile for 5 days and i decide to go in pucon ski resort because you are writing that there is a lot of snow
[about 2 meters].This mountain is completely desapointing for me because it is all flat except one place wich the lift is closed[and when i ask why they told me that is always closed..].I am writing this down so nobody makes the same mistake.It is the worst mountain i've ever been..

Hi, I wanted to make a short comment about the Info you offer on your page.....
I live in Stgo. Chile and I am a Paraglider pilot, flying often in the area of La Parva and Farellones Ski Centers.
The information about temperatures you offer is simply wrong and you would be surprised in how much wrong you are. Maybe this is interesting for you. In this case I may be able to make some more commentary. Just send me a mail.

PB from France
Morzine, France - 17 Mar 2014. Temperature hit 18 degrees at 1
14:20h, a friend said he saw 20 around 14:00! Come on guys 7 and 20 have nothing in common. If I knew it would be 20 degrees I wouldn't have come.
[note from the editor: I wonder if the temperatures, you are referring to, are recorded on thermometers that are sitting in areas where radiated heat can create a distortion e.g the deck of a mountain cafe.]

che from Italy
Madessimo, Italy, has been showing all lifts open. This is not true. Half the mountain has been closed due to snow; still they are misleading people into coming here even though tthe weather is fine. They have not opened the best part of the mountain and hence, the reason for travelling here (I expect they will open when the weekend crow arrives). Fair enough, they have had a lot of snow but they shouldn't lie about how much of the mountain is open.

Nothing but love for Rusutsu, endless pow, less Haole's on this mountain! Hotel stay is comfy and easy to access day and night skiing. Breakfast is awesome here, offers a bit of everything, fresh and tasty! Hotel staff are very kind and helpful to all your needs. I heard the next town Niseko is better for everything so please drive on hahaha!

Gabriella from Israel
On "Ski Israel" the area of Mount Hermon is described as having been taken "illegally" by Israel. Your readers may not know that in June 1967 Israel was attacked by Syria (and other neighbouring Arab states) in an attempt to destroy it. Israel fought back, pushing the attacking forces beyond the Green Line borders, to strategically safe positions. Since then, Israel has returned Sinai to Egypt, and Gaza was handed over to Palestinian control. Syria has shown no intention of negotiating, so the status quo has persisted. In light of the events within Syria during the past three years, you may wonder whether Israel will ever have a partner for peace with such a regime as Syria's. Thus, Israel continues to occupy the Golan Heights, providing security for Israel, and prosperity to its mainly Druze inhabitants. Oh, and some fun for locals on the snow. It is quite a remarkable site considering the southerly latitude.
