First Tracks App

Helly Hansen - the clothing and accessories brand developed an Iphone/Android alarm clock app called First Tracks that helps you "never miss the perfect ride".  The gist is that the application will wake you up earlier on the days in that the snow report has fresh powder -- giving you that extra time to get out and take those first tracks!  A simple, but ingenious idea -- you can download the FREE app from the apple App Store of from Google Play.
