Best Way to Plan a "Sick" Day (2013)

If you habitually (cough, cough) check the snow reports from your favorite resort before deciding whether or not to go to work in the morning, then join the club at Already a winner last year, the site got even better this season, upgrading its reporting tools and adding several new forecasters for national perspective (the site now offers detailed reports from Colorado, Utah, Tahoe, New England and the Mid-Atlantic). Boulder-based meteorologist/ski bum Joel Gratz, the site's co-founder, has become the go-to guy for local powder predictions and storm forecasts, thanks to his Colorado Daily Snow dispatches, which you can also get delivered straight to your inbox. Our favorite feature is the Powder Finder, an at-a-glance view of where to find the most snow in Colorado and across the country.
