Ithaca Snow Angels


Ithaca Snow Angels is a new web app intended to facilitate the generous behavior that many Ithacans show during the winter, to connect physically fit snow shovelers in our community with snowed-in corners presenting obstacles to people's mobility. Ithaca Snow Angels incorporates gamification to make snow shoveling fun and promote prosocial behavior.

If you live, work, play, or just pass through the City, it's easy to participate. Click the link to go to the app, and you can help your community by reporting snowed-in corners and curb cuts, and/or you can lift a shovel to help clear the way. The app flags reported corners as in need of "Snow Angels," which you or others can clear to earn points and recognition.

Sound like fun? Please head to the Ithaca Snow Angels page to find out more about the program and how you can participate.

If you have questions about the Ithaca Snow Angels app, we encourage you to reach out! We'd love to hear from organizations such as gyms, clubs, and neighborhood organizations that might be interested in hosting friendly competitions. Your feedback is also helpful as we launch this new program. Please reach out to the Ithaca Snow Angels Team at
