Accessibility Comments: 

Unfortunetly, this has taken a step backwards of being really accessible with Voice Over. The buttons are not as clear in what they do as in the past. Some of the interface is a bit confusing of being able to navigate around.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some accessibility issues with this app, but it can still be used if you are willing to tolerate these issues and learn how to work around them.

Other Comments: 

If you like to check in to your ski resorts for their latest status in snow conditions, weather, trails open, how many lifts are open, see what other skiers are reporting, and etc. This app is mostly friendly for those blind skiers like myself.
