SnoWhere is a revolutionary location transceiver app designed and tested in the Swiss Alps.

See our intro video at

Find. Or be found. The mountains are an unpredictable environment; don’t be out there with nothing. Give yourself a chance: every minute counts.

Analysis by the Swiss Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research (SLF) shows that survival probability after 15 minutes burial in an avalanche is 80%, dropping steeply to only 40% after 30 minutes, which is the average time taken for organised rescue teams to arrive on the scene. This means that by far the best chance of survival comes from being found and freed by friends who are with you.

The 2011 season was one of the deepest on record for North America and in 2012 the Alps have had the most early season snow this century. Boarders and skiers are heading away from the groomed pistes in ever-increasing numbers; many of them without any safety equipment. For large numbers of this new generation of riders, avalanche transceivers are something mountain guides and patrollers keep hidden under their uniforms, glimpsed occasionally in mountain restaurants.

How does SnoWhere work?

SnoWhere sends out a signal that other SnoWhere users can detect. You know it’s working by the reassuring ping, even though your iPhone is safely in your pocket. SnoWhere restarts automatically after incoming phone calls, in case you forget.

When you want to search, with one touch SnoWhere scans for nearby friends and lets you know who’s been found on screen and with sounds. This means you can search by sound and concentrate on the terrain.

SnoWhere works even in areas without mobile network coverage. (This also means no data roaming costs when you’re abroad.) SnoWhere has a range of 40 metres and has been tested in snow depths of up to 2 metres.

    sounds like a bad idea!! Iphone battery and cold really sucks! Some how doubt the accuracy of this in the backcountry. Not to mention no one else will have this app out there. Get a regular transceiver with international standard of 457 kHz and take a AST course!
