Snow accumulated / slopes

Hi there !
First thank you so much for Windy, it is a really great app !
I am mountain guide (and sailor) and would like to know if it would be possible to imagine some other tools for the avalanche prediction:
- a map with the snow accumulation during the last "x" days (3 would be great).
- a layer with the slopes (MNT) with # colors (25/30°; 31/35°...) see: https://www.geoportail.gouv.fr/actualites/montagne-mieux-prevenir-le-risque-davalanche-avec-la-carte-des-pentes
- to be able to mix 2 layer (transparency): for exemple slopes/wind or slopes/snow last 3 days..
Thanks again for all this !!
It’s good idea, but I’m not sure that it should be reliable. The reason is that weather models, especially global models are not very good at predicting some weather parameter in mountains in particular if you consider local forecasts.
Being from Haute-Savoie, I am very cautious in using locally some raw results from the weather models, e.g. for snowfalls.
These limits are not the fact of Windy but those of the weather models in mountain region. But Windy is still excellent for synoptic weather predictions in mountain.
Then if you are sailing, Windy is perfect and forecasts are excellent.
