Avalanchebulletin search engine

Avalanchebulletin search engine

For freeride skiers and snowboarders, safety is everything. An important aspect of safety is the local avalanche bulletin, which can often be quite hard to find. At wePowder, I tried to solve that problem by offering an online search engine for avalanche bulletins. Just typing a location would be enough to present the local avalanche bulletin to the user.

I was responsible for the concept, design and development of the service, that focused on simplicity and accessibility. I used regional avalanche data from the wePowder platform in combination with a range of geocoding services to deliver the best results based on natural language input. The full screen backgrounds offered a great way to immersively brand the service.
