Rossignol Ski Run (Android & iPhone)

This app from Rossignol allows you to track your days skiing on the mountain and then compare your efforts to your friend’s on Facebook. It also compiles the stats from the day including top speed, average speed and distance and includes them in a global leaderboard of other users. The GPS tracking seems a little sketchy however, in the time I’ve been sat at my desk in central London I have apparently descended 13m.

Rossignol Ski Pursuit is free.

Download from iTunes and Google Play.

Alpine Replay (Android & iPhone)

Alpine Replay is the most detailed app out there for tracking your skiing and snowboarding exertions. It also allows you to measure your owns stats against other people at your resort or even from around the world.

One of the coolest features is the ability to take short 15 second clips (a la Instagram), AR will then overlay extra information about the clip – such as the subject’s speed – you can then share them with the world. You have to take the film of another AR user which does limit its use, but it’s a fun addition.

Alpine Replay is free.

Download from iTunes and Google Play.

Epic Mix (Android & iPhone)

If you’re heading to the USA then the epicMIX app will come in handy. It covers 10 resorts and ties to your lift pass to provide in depth information on your days activities as well as location specific achievements such as the Dolly Parton award (get on a lift at 9 and then one again at 5 – what a way to make a living). It combines this with a clean interface to make a really strong app – if only it was available in more places. 

Epic Mix is free but requires your lift pass details.

Download from iTunes and Google Play.
