Top 7 Ski Apps – Make the most of the Slopes


With the ski season now under way, we ask Consensio Chalets, the luxury ski holiday operator in the French Alps, to share their top apps to ensure you hit the slopes running (or skiing).  From GPS trackers measuring your speed to video-based training to get you fit for the slopes, these downloads are a must.

 

SNOWCRU Skiing & Snow Tracking

Available on iOS and Android

Adding a bit of a competitive edge to your skiing trip, this app records data while you’re on the mountain and then uses it to compare against the data of your friends. You can measure vertical feet that have been travelled, most runs per day, and fastest speed. Stay in touch with your friends while you’re skiing and then compare all of your stats back in the chalet over a nice glass of wine afterwards.

Ranked by Snowboard Magazine, Wired Magazine and SKI Magazine as the #1 best snow sports app

 


Skifit 8

Available on iOS and Android

A short intense video-based training programme for all levels of skiers to help you get into the best physical shape to have a great time on the slopes. Led by a clinical expert and physiotherapist, the videos offer up a series of exercises that can be completed in just eight minutes. You will be guided through exercises that touch on balance, coordination, core and strength endurance. Workouts can be done in the gym or at home and don’t require any sort of equipment.

Open Snow

Available on iOS and Android

A free app built by skiing meteorologists who love powder, this is a one-stop shop for weather forecast and reports. Included are real-time forecasts for resorts all over Europe, North America, and Japan, as well as weather analysis from local forecasters. You can compare your favourite resorts all on one screen and search for the most snow with their Powder Finder feature.

Ski Tracks

Available on iOS and Android

This app works as a GPS tracker to record and measure your speed while sailing down a mountain and at the end of the day it tells you your total distance covered. No data or phone signal is required for recording, making this app ideal for backcountry adventures, or in countries where roaming charges apply.
