Here are quick and easy tips on six practical apps you can use in the mountains this winter. From planning a tour in 3D for freeriders to a unique weather app and training app for cross-country skiers.
The best runs are hard to find? Not at all. The resort maps from FATMAP allow you to plan ski & freeride tours in 3D, making it much easier for you to get your bearings on the mountain. It also includes many points of reference such as footpaths, peaks and rivers.
Skiing is first and foremost a pleasure. So much so that it’s easy to forget the sporting component. Skiline tracks the entire day's skiing, including the altitude climbed. In addition, there are lasting memories thanks to synchronised ski movies and souvenir photos.
Not your classic weather app. With the Windy app, the weather patterns can be tracked visually via radar in an impressive way. With practice, you’ll be able to recognise trends earlier and plan your sporting adventures even better.
Topographic maps, mountain tours, safety expertise and useful tools, e.g. for assessing the slope: the Ortovox app is a valuable companion to have on your smartphone, especially for background information and ski tourers.
Google Maps for outdoor sports enthusiasts with tours for ski mountaineering, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, winter hiking, freeriding, mountaineering and tobogganing as well as tips for ski tours and ice tours. Plus a wide choice of cabins, sights and accommodation. In short: everything you need for winter sports.
An app especially for cross-country skiers that works on the Apple Watch. Measures the route, distances, altitude, heart rate, speed and calorie consumption. Simple, easy to use and tailor-made for cross-country skiing.
