- Download maps for offline usage:
Once the maps are downloaded to the device, you do not need internet access to view GPS maps, locate yourself on the mountain and use any other features the software supports. We support resorts in Canada and US (European resrots coming soon). For a complete list of supported resorts, please click here.
- Pan/zoom/locate yourself on the mountain
The software supports standard mapping featurs like pan/zoom to get an overall idea of the ski resort. The maps have been specially preparted for usage in ski resorts. Lodges/restaurant/Ticket office/Parking/Skier drop off areas/lift types/runs are marked in the dowloaded maps. If your device has a GPS or you use a bluetooth GPS puck, you can locate yourself on the mountain at any time.
- Record GPS tracks
If your device has GPS or you use a bluetooth GPS puck paired with your device, you can record your GPS tracks for ski analytics or just to see the mountain terrain that you have covered when you take a break.
- View tracks overlay
If you turn on track recording, at any point you can view the resort map with your tracks overlaid on the maps in dark brown color. This would help you figure out with a glance which portion of the mountain you have covered and the trails you haven't touched at all.
- Live track animation
If you turn on track recording, you can play your track at any time. The track play shows you a red dot traversing the mountain. The speed of the red dot is proportional to how fast you ski. The red dot goes faster at places where you ski faster. You can see your speed at the bottom left corner of the phone screen.
- Ski track analytics/stats
If you turn on track recording, you can look at detailed ski analytics for your tracks. Detailed track analytics include:
- Name of each lift taken, in the order you took them.
- For each run, in the order you did it, you can see the name of the trails covered. For each run, you can ski the distance skied, your average speed, your maximum speed and the time taken to do that run.
- If you ski through multiple trails during a run, you can view the name of each trail you skied through. For each trail, you can ski the distance skied, your average speed, your maximum speed and the time taken to do that trails.
- Ski track summary
If you turn on track recording, you can view the sumarry of recorded tracks. The track summary includes the following. If you are intermediate skier, you would see maximum distance skied on blue trails. If you are an expert skier, you would find yourself most on the black runs or unknown territory.
- Distance skied on blue trails, your maximum, average speed and time spent on the blue trails.
- Distance skied on black trails, your maximum, average speed and time spent on the black trails.
- Distance skied on green trails, your maximum, average speed and time spent on the green trails.
- Number of lits taken
- Number of runs skied
- Export tracks for posterity
You can export recorded tracks in GPX format to our partner website or to your local filesystem. GPX is a standard format supported by all mapping software including google earth.
