ski-report

A Ruby snow/ski report API wrapper

Requirements

ski-report uses the xmlsimple gem, so be sure to install that first.

$ gem install xml-simple

Usage

require './ski_report'

# SkiReport.fetch([state]) #=> returns a report with an array of resorts

SkiReport.fetch 'Colorado'
SkiReport.fetch 'California'  

Resort Methods

A resort has the following properties available as methods:

  • name - name of the resort
  • updated - when the report was last updated
  • status - open status, e.g. 'Temporarily Closed'
  • conditions - surface conditions, e.g. 'Packed Powder'
  • base - a hash
    • :depth - snow depth at base
    • :metric - metric of base snow depth, e.g. 'inches'
  • snowfall - a hash
    • :amount - snowfall in the last 48 hours
    • :metric - metric of 48hr snowfall, e.g. 'feet'

Example

report = SkiReport.fetch 'Colorado'
report.resorts.each do |resort|
    puts "#{resort.name} - Status: #{resort.status} - Base: #{resort.base[:depth]} #{resort.base[:metric]}"
