We’re in the peak of the ski and boarding season! Make the most of your trips with these five apps for avid skiers and snowboarders.
Have you ever wondered how far you want in a day on the slopes or how fast your run was? Ski Tracks provides all that data and more. This all-in-one GPS tracking app will measure your distance, speed, altitude and more. This app won’t drain your battery while it runs in the background to collect your data. Each of your runs is separated automatically by that app, letting you compare how you perform over the season.
Trace Snow takes the data of Ski Tracks and amps it up with recording calories burned, airtime, verticals and how much time you spent in the chairlift. Access your stats on the slope or go to snow.traceup.com for a larger view. It can also plot out each of your runs on a map for a larger picture of your day.
Take your snow report on the go with the OnTheSnow app. Get updated on current condition for more than 2,000 ski areas. You’ll also find deals and discounts from ski resorts because who doesn’t love a good deal. Turn on notification for your favorite resort and be alerted when fresh powder starts pouring down.
If there is one pain we all share, it’s traffic. The toughest part of your day can be getting to the mountain some days. Waze provides real-time traffic updates, pass conditions and accident reports. It can switch you to a quicker route and get you on your way to that fresh powder.
The Colorado Avalanche Information Center’s app is perfect for all Colorado skiers and snowboarders, whether they are hitting the backcountry or staying in-bounds. Information provided includes current avalanche problems, weather forecast summary and snowpack information.
Use these great apps to enjoy your day shredding powder, staying out of traffic and avoiding any danger possible.
