There are simply stacks of skiing apps available to download nowadays, but which ones will actually add value to your ski experience? We give the lowdown on the most practical skiing apps on the market.
Mammut Safety – Free
Stay safe on the mountain by using this ski app to measure the angle of the slope you’re on, find out which direction you’re skiing in, what altitude you’re at and receive up-to-date avalanche bulletins. But the best feature is that you can use the SOS button to send your co-ordinates by text message to the emergency services, should a problem arise.
We say – particularly valuable for off-piste skiers
When travelling, technology is sometimes a lifesaver. And now with web enabled phones, it’s really easy to get travel apps for your iPhone, iPad or smartphone that help point you in the right direction. Some work like modern day maps, others just show you where to find great food.
Travellers are increasingly looking to pick up languages skills and destination advice long before they’ve packed their bags. And there are travel apps for these too.
There’s even an app that turns your phone into a flashlight. And if you like to write as you roll, we’ve sourced a travel app that lets you upload your own destination reviews.
If you are already using an app not featured, let us know and we’ll check it out and add it to our list.
