What's up mountain nerds!
We just launched a new feature that will help keep everyone updated
when and whereThe Mountain is out. Mountain out auto-tweets!
Anytime we get a Mountain out report it will now be posted on Twitter with a lovely little card showing all the details!
- Mountain out status (Out, Kinda Out, etc)
And what's even more exciting is the map background on this card will be replaced by image uploads once that feature is added! 💥
And for webcam reports it shows the image from the webcam:
Make sure you are following along on Twitter so you get all the mountain out updates! And keep submitting those reports! ❤️
Thanks mountain watchers!

If you have a webcam looking towards The Mountain, please let us know, we would love to add it! Or if you know of a public webcam that's missing, also let us know!
Coming soon will be the ability to report from those locations and have them added to the map with a special webcam flair:
I'm super excited to say we just launched a new accompany site to this project to answer the question with a single phrase!
It is powered by data from all your reports!
We need a user's location so we can add the mountain status report to the map. And one thing we heard a lot from users was that the location error message was confusing and hard to understand.
So this update improves it the error handing and adds a tooltip to the report form.
And adds an item to the FAQ page that talks about location data in more detail.
We have launched the beta!
This new website is the best way to answer "Is The Mountain out?" and it is going to be awesome! Thanks for joining us!
This ideas has been something my brother and I have been planning and slowly building for years - and about 6 months ago we went into high drive to make it a reality for this summer!
- Report the mountain status from your location
- Choose from 5 different "mountain out" states
- Use the interactive map to see other mountain out reports
- Use on any device (computer, phone, tablet, etc)
- History page > go back in time and see mountain out reports
This is just a beta so I expect there will bugs and things wrong. Please shoot us a chat message if you spot anything wrong or have feedback! Thanks!
