Bing Weather for Windows Phone 8 now offers ski reports; Bing Sports covers 30 more sports

Eager to hit the powder this winter? If you’re a skier, you’ll like the latest changes to Bing Weather—one of two popular and free Bing apps for Windows Phone 8 to get feature upgrades this morning.

Download the app and you’ll find the app now supplies current snow and weather conditions at ski resorts around the world, plus weather history and additional metrics like the UV index. And that’s not all. Other notable changes include revamped Live Tiles displaying current conditions, wind-speed, and precipitation—with a 5-day forecast on the flip side. But my favorite addition is new lock screen support for at-a-glance weather updates. Give it a try and see what you think.

The Bing team also significantly beefed up coverage in its free Bing Sports app, adding 30 new sports including tennis, rugby, NASCAR, LPGA, and Champions League soccer. The app already supplies top headlines, scores, schedules, standings, and stats. But now you can also track sports and players that matter to you most—so the app feels a lot more personal. Another change: Bing Sports also now shows leading teams and players on league and team pages. Download it now
