I’ve been using this for 4-5 years and really like it. It is set and forget. You just turn it on, throw your phone in your pocket or backpack and off you go. Not sure how the iPhone gets such a good GOS signal when not out in the open, but it seems to work all the time. I haven’t done much with it other than check my stats at the end of the day and see what we did. It’s really cool to know how much vertical and how many miles you've traveled. There’s more to it than that; you can store photos. It seems to be pretty accurate as far as mph, distances, showing your exact route, etc. but hard to say because there’s now way for me to verify the data with another tool. Request for developer: It would be really great to have a picture page in the app that shows all of the pictures from the runs and you simply my scroll down the page through the pics and click on a pic to review that track. This way, if you remember a great feature on a mountain you can snap a pic of it in the app and easily use ski tracks later on to help find the exact run that got you there. People would love this if done with a slick interface.
The Analyze function is buggy and destroys data
Update: I’m afraid I’ve lowered my rating of this app again, this time down to 2 stars. Apparently, using the Apple Watch to control the app is buggy as hell. 14,000 vertical feet translating to 68 miles of travel and other weirdness. But the worst is their ‘Analyze’ function: 12 runs/14,000 ft changes to 1 run/28 ft — and it appears that the function actually DESTROYS THE ORIGINAL DATA. To top it off the developer’s solution thus far is “well, don’t use the watch for this”. I’m now exploring alternatives. This’ll be my third year using this app, this year adding an Apple Watch to my ecosystem. I stay with this app over the alternatives because it continues to focus on actual skiing while most of the others are turning into social apps that happen to track skiing as an afterthought. My rating would be 5 stars if the developer would add turn tracking like they suggested they would a year ago. If another developer starts providing that, it may convince me to try a new app.
Great until this season...
I've used this app since 2012 and it has always worked well. It's been good to see it improved along the way. Last year I was able to use it on my watch and I thought that was really awesome until today. At the end of a fantastic day of boarding it failed to transmit the data to my iPhone X. This was with the Apple Watch 2. All I have left of my data is the picture I took of the summary screen when I saw the "End" button was not responsive. I have a few more days to be on the mountain this week and I can say I won't be using the watch app any more. Funny thing, this morning we were trying to install the app on my wife's AppleWatch 3 for her to use and it was no where in the lost of apps to install on the watch even though it was installed on her phone. I should've taken that as an omen. Not a happy user of this watch app. It's gotta go from my watch and I'm going to see what my options are if any for data recovery and/or export.
Meets My Expectations
I have always wondered how fast I was going down the mountain. Now I know! It was also fun to “replay” my day. This app met my expectations of a GPS tracker. Thank you for not having any in app purchases like your competitors. There is absolutely no justification to do that for an app like this. If there was one thing I would like to see added, it would be the ability to edit a Track after saving it. While using it the first time, I forgot to pause the app when I got on a shuttle to go from one Ski area to another (Loveland Ski Area in Colorado has two areas that are accessible by shuttle) so the app recorded my ride in the shuttle. I could also see myself forgetting to stop recording only to remember on the drive home.
Great app, one recommendation
Love this app, very simple interface to use and check in on your skiing/snowboarding for the day. Speeds can be a little iffy but with gps and terrain, they do a great job with what they’ve got. Only gripe is that when you forget to turn it off and drive away from the resort, there is no way to fix the mistake. I would recommend the ability to delete runs on an individual basis or a slider bar on runs to adjust the start/end times. OR figure out what Trace Snow did where it detects you are in the car and won’t record that data. Just the one thing missing to go from 4->5
Watch to phone app communication = bleh
Sure wish the watch app correctly communicated with the app on my phone to accurately show the status. Paused tracking on my watch, then resumed it on my watch. Showed it was recording. 45 min I checked my phone because the watch vertical seemed off and noticed it never actually started recording. Watch shows the correct time elapsed... I do full stack web development and I use promises to confirm whether the action on the server was successful... if not then reflect that on the browser/client side. I don’t see how this app shouldn’t work the same way. Other than that, great app overall. Been using for 5 seasons and love the updates over that time... just wish the watch communication with phone worked better.
Great app but needs auto pause
I have used this app a few times for classic Nordic skiing on my Apple Watch series 5. The app works great and has no issues using my Wahoo heart sensor chest strap in place of the Apple Watch heart rate sensor. My only requests are as follows: First, add an auto pause feature. So if I stop for any reason, the timer stops. Second, add the ability to add min and max heart rates and heart zones. Third, allow user customized screens. As it stands, without these features, I will likely switch to a Garmin fitness watch. The app has a lot of potential though, and for the price the premium version is unbeatable.
Use this app every time I ski. Very accurate compare to an older garmin edge 305. I haven’t noticed any problems with battery life. The integration with watch has improved. I just noticed you can now start and pause your day from the watch without pulling out the phone. I keep the phone in my jacket pocket. iPhone 6 works with no issues. Plan on digging out my old iPhone 5 and see if I can plant it on my son since he at time skis off with his race mates will I ski with his younger brother. I upload data to garmin connect to view on any browser.
Very nice app
I love being able to look at my max. speed, distance, vertical, and path on the google earth map. It's worth purchasing the full app to get the extra features. There could be a few improvements yet. I often have to re-name the ski resort. It does not work well on small hills (under 350 ft.). And it would be nice if the trim tool could be used to set start and end points for individual runs and lifts within your track. Overall a very nice app, well worth the price!
Great app - accurate?
I think it’s the best app. Ran 3 apps today and started and stopped all within seconds of one another. Other than the time they all were surprisingly different. Vertical feet seemed to be the biggest culprit. I wonder which is most accurate? An online search yielded reviewers preferences but not an accuracy comparison. Anyway maybe SkiTrac could investigate. The app is always a top choice. Developers - please integrate with Strava. That’s why I purchased an a secondary source in the first place.
Very Well Done
Used this on a recent 6-day ski trip to track our runs, speed, map - it does everything you want in ski tracking and nothing you don't. You can tell the developers really know what they are doing. The watch app is basic but useful and works well. No crashing or glitches on the phone or the watch, though it didn't work until upgrading to WatchOS 4.2. After running the GPS and tracking all day, I was surprised to see only a fraction of the battery on my iPhone 8 was used. Very impressive. Suggested improvements: - Better maps that show ski runs (uses the Apple Maps built-in, which doesn't - Google maps does) - Controls in the watch app to start/stop, etc. I don't want to drop my phone from a lift! - Enable the snow sports workout type on other Watch models than Series 3.
So many features!
I’ve been using this app for about three seasons now, and it has always impressed me with its accuracy and features. Even now, in the off season, I can look back through each trip and remember all the great (or not so great) times I’ve had over the last couple of years. It struck me that it was probably time to review this app as I sat in the middle of the off season thinking about a skiing app. 11/10 would recommend.
Not using Apple Watch so no comments about it. This app rocks for all my ski needs. The map and edit functions are great for those occasions when I forget to turn it off after skiing. Just edit the end of the runs. Easy. My want list: Merge runs over multiple days on the same mountain to create a composite of all runs on a given mountain. This would be very helpful in finding runs that haven’t been explored. Annotate where falls or rests appear. This would be great to show where and how often we rest or fall. Auto merge photos with ski route. Use the gps to link photos to places on the ski map to show where photos were taken during the course of a ski day. It would require accessing the photo album and pinpointing the location on the ski map or time of day.
This app does do a few cool things, but the average speed includes time that you a stopped and not moving as well as time that you are on the chair lift. You can get you phone out and pause the app before and fire a run, but my fingers get cold, and I don’t like to do that. It would also be nice if it would tell you how long each run takes, so you can compare to see if you’re getting faster. It’s a bit of a search for the run times and I think it includes the lifts again Nice graphs of the elevation, and satellite view of the resort
Great App, Really fun and can be very highly recommended.
Helpful to know where you haven’t skied as well as where you tend to ski. Has definitely saved us several times in whiteout conditions. One wish is that you could add days when you don’t remember to start it or add some vertical when you start it late. Very helpful when helping someone who hasn’t been to a resort before. Has everything and more than what I would think of.
