Hey guys!
  Absolutely LOVE your product! Use it nearly every day religiously between work and recreation. I am a passionate back country skier, ski guide and avalanche nerd who finds your platform mission critical every day I step out into the mountains. I started using cal topos weather station overlays last season… and seem to remember them being more user friendly last season. I stared my morning tour planning routine with coffee in hand this morning, starting clicking around in snow tel and wind data…. Not nearly as easy to read as it was last season. Most importantly wind direction is not provided once you click on the chart feature. Wind speed, gust, and direction for the past 24 hours is absolutely critical for us who are making decisions about how to approach avalanche terrain. If I had to pick one data point about the wind over a 24 hour period… I would pick direction. Better yet if I could see what the wind was up to in 15 minute or better intervals.

Most of the snowtel sensors and several of the weather stations I tried to look at the charts for… chart only showed for the first few hours. Blind on the most data. I’ve attached a couple photos of this

I was doing all of this via website on my laptop.

Thanks again for all you guys do!

    Hi Jason,

    We are all eagerly devouring the data this morning too! We've had to change data sources for the weather stations since last year. We might be able to incorporate the wind direction history somehow, but it won't be right away unfortunately.

    As for the charts not fully loading, I can't get that to happen myself. I assume you've tried a page refresh and such?
