    What is the most accurate weather website for Colorado?

    I'm particularly interested in wind speed and direction.

    Noaa and Wunderground suck for this. Anything else?

    There are two rules to life...

    While it doesn't do much for wind speeds, www.powderchasers.com is good for overall weather, snow predictions, and general weather flow patterns. He pretty much nails Utah and Colorado on a regular basis.

    Good questions.

    1) Wind speed and direction.

    The NWS (NOAA) point forecast is actually about as good as you can get, easily. For Berthoud Pass:
    http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick...77739715576172

    See a graph of the data for the point by clicking "Hourly Weather Graph" near the bottom:
    http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick...Type=graphical

    If you want a do it yourself solution, fireweather.info is the best. Make sure to look at the 700mb winds, which are about 10,000ft. The surface wind forecast isn't that bad, either.

    We (opensnow.com) have wind speeds in the NWS forecast, which is available on the "NWS Forecast" tab of each area. Example for Berthoud Pass: http://opensnow.com/location/berthoud#forecast

    2) Best powder prediction for Colorado on Android is the http://www.opensnow.com mobile website. No app, but the mobile site is super fast and gives you all the info you need (including your dashboard of favorites).
