The market for sports apps that make training easier is constantly expanding. Here is a list of the most interesting proposals for the winter season.
One of the most popular free apps for skiers and snowboarders, which helps to track the traveled route in a minimalistic way. The app launches easily and monitors the distance traveled and its parameters throughout the activity. The stats include the length of the route, the speed of the route, the altitude, the time taken to complete the workout, and the exact terrain on the map. Ski Tracks works without an internet connection or cellular network, so you can use it all day long, even in the woods or on top of a mountain. The collected statistics can be shared on social media and viewed on Google maps.
Ski and Snow Report
The idea and design of the application comes from the Skiinfo.pl information portal for skiers, which provides up-to-date information on more than 2000 most visited ski resorts around the world, including those in Slovakia, Poland and the Czech Republic. Ski and Snow Report publishes current data on weather conditions, ski stations, piste maps, weather forecasts and safety on the slopes. The app also provides live views from cameras located in popular ski resorts. Ski and Snow Resort allows you to share your own news about events on the slopes as well as photos of your trips to the mountains.
3D Superski / Dolomiti Superski
A useful app for skiers who decide to stay in the Italian mountains. The graphically enhanced software simulates the view of the Dolomites in 3D, resembling their natural appearance. The application interface is preloaded with a preview of more than 1200 kilometers of ski runs, ski lifts for riders and their opening hours. Thanks to the advanced GPS technology, the user can freely move around the terrain of the largest ski region in Italy and precisely determine his current position. Among the information published in 3D Superski you can find notes on the nearest restaurants or ski resorts, bus stops, hotspots and weather conditions. The paid premium version allows you to track your ski routes and compare them with other app users.
Great for recording both board and ski runs. During the ride, the app records the route, speed, angle of inclination, altitude and calories burned. The recorded results can be shared on social media and among other app users. To register you need an email connection or a Facebook profile. The collected statistics are categorized into days, months and individual rides and climbs. Thanks to this option, the application creates a comprehensive record of achievements throughout the year, which makes it much easier to control your progress on the slopes.
The application is a kind of ski map of Europe. In its options you will find access to information on more than 1600 resorts in Europe and about 25 thousand kilometers of special ski runs. All data is updated with each new winter season – so as to systematically expand the database. The created interactive maps make it easy to find nearby hotels, restaurants, ticket offices for the slopes and the nearest equipment rental companies. Each user can personalise the functions of the app and save their favourite ski runs, lifts and ski resorts, giving them quick and direct access to basic information about them, such as opening hours. All archived data can be shared on private social media profiles.
