First and foremost, good planning is part of a successful ski holiday. Where are the best slopes? Where is there a danger of avalanches? How is the snow situation in the respective regions? All of these questions are easy to answer these days – all you have to do is download the appropriate app! I’ll show you the seven best apps for skiing holidays – with these programs you will be prepared for the ski season!
Snocru Skiing & Snow Tracking
If you want to review your day on the slopes, the Snocru app is just right for you. Similar to the Runtastic fitness app, you can simply record your routes and compare them with each other. The speed and steepness are also measured – you can then even share this data on social networks such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The app is free, but it consumes a lot of battery because you have to use GPS all the time. So you should rather have a power bank with you if you want to use Snocru non-stop.
The app from the well-known Bergfex website is an absolute must-have for every skier! This provides you with all the important information about many ski regions in Europe. In addition to weather reports, you will also find the current snow conditions for the various slopes in the app. You also have access to around 5000 webcams and you can view high-resolution piste maps. In addition to the free lite version, there is also a pro version for 3 euros.
According to nexticle.net, the iSki Austria app is specially tailored to Austrian ski areas and offers roughly the same features as Snocru. You can also use this app to record your day on the slopes and watch it later. There is also information on the current snow conditions and the weather in the Austrian ski regions. There is also a hut alarm, which indicates that there are restaurants nearby. If you want to compare your performance with your friends, you can register on the website of the app publisher .
So that you are prepared for dangers on your skiing holiday, you should download the free SnowSafe app . This informs you about the danger situation in the respective regions. The data is constantly updated so that you are always up to date – even if there is no internet connection.
