Powderlines SNOTEL API

Documentation for the API is here: http://powderlin.es/api.html

TODO:

  • Add additional data sources. We could use snow data from avalanche centers. For instance here is the data for Washington from NWAC: http://data.nwac.us/ALL.
  • Debug why errors are returned so frequently (might be too few dynos on heroku)
  • Update list of stations to include new SNOTEL stations. Is there a better way to get this data than manually adding it?
  • Create an endpoint for finding stations with deepest snow packs
  • Add avalanche data to each station (NWAC has API for Washington www.nwac.us/api/v2/)
