🔥🔥🔥

Fantastic app for any skiers/snowboarders looking to track their day on the this app. The data Slopes gives even without the premium pass is still very cool and helpful. You can view your top speed, longest run length, a timeline of all lift rides and runs with an animation on a 2D map, etc.

The premium pass somehow makes it 10x better, with precise lift and run times for each run, instantaneous speeds on any run, a 3D google-earth like view of your day on the this app, a graph with your heart rate and speed along the timeline, and many other things that would take too long to list here. I would HIGHLY recommend Slopes, and if you can afford the premium pass, even just for a day or a single trip, I would also highly recommend it.

The only issue I have had with Slopes is the last 90 min of one of my days not recording, which I think was due to me accidentally force closing Slopes ; otherwise, it is absolute 🔥. I almost never write reviews, but Slopes deserved my time. (Which should tell y’all something)

Great without friends

While the title might make you think I'm lonely, I can assure that's not the case. Slopes is great on its own, nice layout, easy and overall a great and engaging experience. The issue comes in when you want to connect friends on it. Me and a friend who have both used Slopes for a few years on our own became friends however, on the friends page it says that he has no stats whatsoever. This is weird as he has used it for years and it still has all the tracks logged, it's like they just didn't transfer to the friends section. We don't know why his do not appear. They don't appear on my app or his, but my stats do on both. It's not a huge deal and we usually discuss our stats in person, however, it would be nice to see eachothers and frankly it shouldn't have this issue in the first place. Though I have looked through the settings and haven't found anything that would prevent the transfer of his stats though I may be missing something. I hope there is an easy fix and will keep you all updated!

What would Jesse Pinkman do?

I give a 5 star. I was gifted an Apple Watch for Christmas and have been recording as many days on snow as I can. (So far iv got 28 days, 258runs) I really enjoy being able to look back at my day and see each run, even with the free version. I am however very forgetful and sometimes forget to stop the recording and Slopes records my ride home as a result. I know I can edit those out with the features provided. I wish there was a way for Slopes to be able to recognize when iv left the resort, and am on main roads, so that an auto stop would activate and auto log while I’m driving. I get that that’s asking a lot for someone who’s lazy and just forgetting to simply hit stop, but i think, in my opinion, that it would make Slopes better. You’ve already improved in so many ways since the 26th of dec. and I thank you for that! Thank you for a lock, the stop without pause, and the safety features for glade trials.

Great app, could use one improvement

I’ve been looking for an app to track my snowboarding for sometime now and am really happy to finally find it. Easy to use, GPS based location is great considering other apps I have used can’t lock it down, Strava integration (I don’t like Strava’s on slope recording compared to its cycling accuracy), and Watch integration. All around a good app with some cool features. I’m not a premium subscriber yet as my main riding partner is in a cast and I won’t be going to any big resorts this year, but I am looking forward to using my day pass to try out the features.

My one complaint, and this may just be with my Watch itself, is that the Siri integration for this app doesn’t work on it. I say “hey Siri, start snowboarding” and the Fitness app pops up. It works fine on my phone, but not on the Watch. Like I said, could be a Watch thing, but I would like the ability to use voice control confidently.

Aside from that one hiccup, which is probably just user error, a great app that I highly recommend.

Best Sports Tracking App

Slopes is amazing! Hands down the best sports tracking app and probably my favorite app to use period. Not only does it flawlessly track my ski runs, it is so simple to use. Just show up at the ski area and Slopes auto-detects where you are, hit start on your watch and off you go. Auto-pauses and auto-resumes when youy stop at the lodge for a bite to eat. Will detect when you accidentally drove off and didn't stop recording. Has weather and maps for many resorts, not just handful of the biggest resorts. Great watch integration. I can keep going, but the best part is how affordable it is. The free version is really good but the developer gives multiple options for the premium version from single day use up to annual pass and they are all an incredible value. Can't say enough good things about Slopes and the developer keeps making improvements. Support him so he can keep up the awesome work!

Great App

Wish I downloaded Slopes sooner. I always use this app because I thoroughly enjoy beating my last season stats. I also use it as my snow season diary. It’s awesome that the photos I took during my send is automatically attached to my day. I’ve been digging the new features like being able to download maps for offline use and peer recorded weather updates. My only request would be that you can view a trail map of the resort as one of the map layer options when you view your run details. Right now you can only view in winter or satellite layer. I’ve also noticed that some resort maps are only a portion of the resort and not the entire resort. Overall, I think it’s an awesome app and am grateful for all the new updates every season. My partner and I have been premium subscribers for 3 seasons now and we both think it’s totally worth it. Thanks this app app!!

Pleasantly Surprised with Slopes

Great features and UI. Slopes on the iOS side is robust, stable and cutting edge. I love the feature where you can compare runs with friends. Also love the ability to edit out car time in car between runs, but I wish it would allow you to re-sync with Strava after recorded data from car rides are edited out. It seems that it only does the immediate sync of real-time data to Strava only once after you stop recording. I’ve even tried to disconnect and reconnect to Strava and data didn’t re-sync even after Slopes asked if I wanted to upload recent activity (‘recent’ isn’t defined). Finally, the synced runs in Strava don’t provide heart data but the developer is working on that with Strava.

Overall, though, while the $25 annual unlimited membership seems a bit much I think the $40 family plan (up to 6 in a household) makes it worth it if everyone skis/rides. Again, I love Slopes despite the cons above because the pros outweigh for sure.

Could be Better

I love Slopes ! It’s good, but there is a lot that can be improved. I would rate it more positively if there were reviews for every run. Let’s say, the top speed, distance, average speed, and time for every trail you ski or ride. Also, the time on the chairlift and lift line time (as well as other breaks) are added into your average speed. This doesn’t bother me much, but when comparing with friends who use other apps, I always have a speed of around 3 mph when they have averages of 24 mph. Some apps I’ve used (which have [sadly] been taken out of Slopes Store) recorded numbers of jumps and names of trails. When talking with friends today on the lifts, we decided that Slopes should totally show the names of the trails you skied and have trail maps readily available. Along with the maps, I always wished Slopes would show which trails were closed, and which chairlifts were running. Other than these suggestions, Slopes is great!! Though I have had better apps, this one is definitely at the top. 👍

Amazing on any device, paid or free, any trip!

Okay, so I've had Slopes for about 6m and today I finally got to use it as I haven't been out on the this app. Slopes is simply amazing. Not only is it great on Apple Watch. Old iPhones (tried on IPhone 5), and new iPhones, but it's also very accurate on all of them. It got my exact times (times Myself with atop watch) shows you any wipeouts, slowdowns, speeds, and everything you cAn think of. It shows you very single run in 3D mode, and even a satellite view of the mountain, showing exactly on the trail you were at, showing all your turns. That one is a paid feature, but with all the amazing paid features I recommend getting a one day pass. I don't ski often, so it's totally worth it. If you ski at least twice a week, maybe get a liger pass. It's amazing for casual skiing for a hobby like myself, or if your a racer or comp skier. Would 1000% recommend.

This app is god!

Just took this for a full day of sending with some friends and I really like Slopes. The speed tracker is wicked and I was super hyped when i broke 50mph. The mapping is also amazing, you can see each of the runs you did and the lifts you used. I was also amazing at just how far and high we skied. You would think that the gps recording and speed tracking takes a toll on your battery. It turns out it didn’t really at all! Slopes uses the gps and speed stats from the Apple health trackers and it’s relatively energy efficient. I started at 89% and on low power mode, with a bit of snap chatting and phone calling my phone dropped to only 56%. All in all I highly recommend Slopes. It’s made by one rad guy who wants to improve our days, which he definitely has. Also, everything I talked about is completely freeeee! So download Slopes and enjoy your adventure on the mountain.

Simply The Best

As one who lives in a ski resort, skiing is a part nearly everyday life. I’ve tried many ski tracking apps and none compare to this app. Slopes is by far the most comprehensive, accurate, and intuitive apps you’ll find for tracking your skiing or snowboarding. It provides a wealth of detail on your ski day and the integration with Photos and Apple Health makes it the single app you need.

Beyond this, I have never had better support with a developer of an app in Slopes Store. Recently I had an issue with my Family plan. The support team (Emma in particular) worked tirelessly to get it fixed and made sure my account and those of my family remained active as they sorted out the issue.

Bottom line: This is the best app for skiers and snowboarders and it backed by an awesome support team. Tap the GET button. You’ll be happy you did 👍🏻

Great ski tracker

It’s hard to find fault with Slopes. I do have one request, which I’ll lead with. Some of us hike to certain runs or off piste spots. Here at aspen Highlands, the Bowl is a daily ritual. this app tracks the hike perfectly, but seems to think it is a lift for calorie tracking purposes. I can assure you it is not. Since this app knows where all the lifts are, it would seem a simple matter to track this uphill high altitude trail.

I love how accurate this app is. It captures every run perfectly, even the intermittent rest stops. The distances and speeds are great. The map of my ski day is fun. It helps me remember how many days I do what in a year, which I love. The real test will be in Japan later in the season, where on and off piste skiing is on tap. It would be nice if it tracked hiking (and skinning) separately for what it is, rather than lumping it into the lazy uphill category.

Great app!

I love this app!

This is my third season using this app and I love all the information you can get on a free app. Not only does it break up your day to actual run time and lift time but it gives you average speed and allow you to pause for breaks. It is very easy to use and the support team is great! My only issue with Slopes is that the calories burned count is confusing to me since it is really high when I compare it to another calorie tracker that estimates calories for down hill skiing. On that app my 1 hr and six minutes of actual downhill ski time in 3 hours of being on the hill was 306 cal while this app said I used over 518 calories. That is a big difference! Last year I spoke with Kelly on the support team to try to understand it and She said they would work on it but it hasn’t changed. Except for that one thing which may not matter to many, it does exactly what I need it to do.

Stop looking another tracking app and get Slopes

TL;DR get this app if you are interested in any sort of ski/snowboard tracking

This is the only ski/snowboard tracking app you will need. Once you download and try it you will be hooked.

We used to only be able to know who got to the bottom of the run fastest, and just try our hardest to remember how many runs we did, did we ride Montezuma 3 or 4 times before lunch, I lost count.

Not any more! Every stat you can think of is tracked, lift time and line time, actual riding time, speed, distance, altitude, runs, heart rate (with Apple Watch), gps map of your runs, 3D map of your runs, and some many others. Now you can see exactly how many runs you did and who is getting to a higher speed during the run! I was able to pinpoint exactly how fast I was riding when I crashed and dislocated my shoulder (39mph), but don’t tell my wife.

On top of the already awesome app, it keeps getting regular updates! I thought to myself, it would be great if the Apple Watch app tracked heart rate, not a month later it was added. Then I though it would be cool if you could see a graph of this, again a month later that feature was added. I don’t have any more ideas but I’m sure something else I love is coming.

Outstanding app for snowsports enthusiasts

Simply put: outstanding app. From the wealth of stats that are collected to their presentation, this app is hands down the best app for tracking your feats of heroism in the mountains.

There is so much happening behind the scenes that reveal the attention to detail. For example, the daily overview with a map of your progress breaks out runs vs lift rides. Fine, lots of apps do that. But this app shows you an elevation profile or your heart rate over time. And it even identifies the names of the lifts ridden! Small detail for sure, but still cool.

Suggestions.

1. The Apple Watch app UI is too delicate and dainty. I’d prefer to see number of runs as the largest number, not elapsed time. It would be great if you could pick, say, three or four stats, each displayed in the largest possible format (for those of us that wear single vision contacts when riding the pow).

2. The season log book shows elapsed time skiing or total time. But these only resolve to hourly significant figures. That’s too coarse. It should show hours and minutes.

3. Would be awesome if the Apple Watch app could read your current stats aloud by tapping on the watch face or perhaps invoking Siri.

Best tracker, with excellent support.

I have used this app for several years now and it continues to keep all its strengths. Easy to use, especially on the Apple Watch, low battery drain, nicely presented results. However I mainly wanted to talk about the level of support. A few years ago I had some issue with the database and sent an email at about 10pm Eastern. I then emailed real time with Curtis the developer who fixed the issue that night before heading out skiing the next day. He probably can’t guarantee that level of response for everyone, but the other day I had a minor issue that turned out to be mainly my fault. The support staff (now more than just Curtis) responded quickly and accurately. Try that with some huge company.

Best ski tracking app!

I’ve used another ski tracker (Ski Tracks)for a long time, 7-8 years now. It was very good, but this app is even better.

It does an excellent job of tracking runs even if you don’t have a paid subscription. But, the price of admission is totally worth it for what you get. The detailed run stats and 3D maps make for reviewing the days activities very easy and fun. The mapping is even better than what I am used to from Ski Tracks.

The Apple Watch integration is amazing - just start your tracking from the Watch at the beginning of your day and you’ve always got detailed info on your wrist throughout the day....best of all it saves HR data so you can view that at the end of the day with your other stats.

What sold me on this app was the built-in integration with Strava. This is the only area that I would currently like to see some upgrades. After communicating with the developer, sounds like that is on Strava’s end. Currently some of the speed data doesn’t get linked properly, but the real important stuff like distance & vertical flow over nicely.

All in all this is a very solid tracker, worth the paid price. Pick it up before your next day out on the this app!

Excellent App for Casual Riders who want to know more!

I want to start this review by saying that I have spent zero dollars on Slopes and have only experienced the free stuff.

I go on between 3 and 5 trips a year and I started using Slopes a little over a year ago. Slopes is perfect for anyone who wants to track their days on the mountain. I use the Apple Watch app to start & pause my runs and it automatically records a snowboard workout in the activity app! Last year, I got my friends to download Slopes so we could see who got the highest top speed.

Even without the premium features, this is the perfect app for someone who wants to have the trail map, run data, rider-reported mountain conditions, and a ski patrol help button in one place!

My top skiing priority

You might think I’m crazy that this is the first thing I think about when packing to ski, but it’s true. I love being able to see my stats and have them recorded for each season. I make sure my watch is charged for the night and start Slopes up every time I go to a resort. No cell service is required for the watch which is even more amazing to me.

If there was one upgrade that I think Slopes could use would be to label each run. You can edit them if it’s a run that was recorded as a lift or if you left it on while driving to get dinner. But I would like to name the runs as the resorts name them or so that my run # compares to my friends.

I couldn’t be happier with an app than I am with this one.

Just keeps getting better

I don’t buy a lot of apps or have a lot of subscriptions - but the developer for this app just keeps on adding features and making improvements. Works flawlessly with my Apple Watch, and my 2 kids have burner iPhones i put in their pocket to track their progress. They like to check their stats at the end of the day. There is now an SOS feature added which could come in handy but I hope I never need it.

Ive picked up some stickers also and will probably grab a Stealth Tee when i reach the stats marker - would have easily made it last season but it was cut short due to Covid.

I highly recommend Slopes and subscription if you hit the mountain more than a couple times a year.


By


Best ski tracker, no comparison

Works flawlessly. So easy to use, if you go to a new mountain it knows where you are immediately. The data feels very accurate. It’s always within a few hundred feet of epic mix and while I have no way of verifying this I believe this app to be more accurate. Running this app all day in addition to music does not significantly affect my battery life. The 3D replay is awesome. It’s cool to see where you were in the trees or off piste when it’s not always obvious. I don’t think the calories burned is accurate as I’ve gotten similar numbers if I’m on bumps vs groomers but this should be fixed with the new update if you use it with Apple Watch and hr. My only wish at this point would be for some sort of leaderboard. Either way this is the best ski tracker app there is.

No longer works on my iPhone 6

At the start of the ski season, I tried to use this app, but iOS had offloaded it since I hadn’t used it during the off-season. I couldn’t get it to download again and after several tries, finally discovered that it now only works on iOS 13 and up. The developer claims you can keep using the old version, but if you have to reinstall, you can’t get the old one back. Now switching to a competitor that still supports iOS 12. As a developer myself, it’s generally a good idea to support at least the previous iOS version.

Update: After the developer contacted me, I was able to reinstall an older version of Slopes . Apple did not make this easy to find. I added two more stars due to the developer’s prompt response. However, I would still like to see support for at least one iOS version back for new updates. Most apps I checked still support back to iOS 10.

Fantastic Ski Tracking App

I used this at Mt. Sunapee resort for the first time yesterday. Slopes is very polished and does exactly what it's supposed to. The Apple Watch version is also very good. I can tell the developer put a lot of thought and care into this project. Slopes tracks the amount of time you spent going downhill, riding the lift uphill, and resting. It will even estimate calories burned and add it to the Health app. The optional in app purchase model for advanced stats works well. You can use Slopes without purchasing a pass, but the price for a day is very reasonable and allows you to track more information about your day while supporting the developer for making this great app. I've used other ski tracking apps and this is the best I've used so far by a long shot.


By


Great app, even better developer

I've been using Slopes for a while and I've really enjoyed it. My kids actually look forward to the chair lift so we can look at the stats on our most recent run: how far, how high, and of course, how fast. If you love skiing, you'll love Slopes.

Even better was the most recent update note about removing the Facebook hooks. It seems that every day there's yet another announcement about FB abusing or leaking our personal data, so I'm really happy to see that this developer is taking steps to distance Slopes (and all of its users) from "that creepy company". I wish more programmers took privacy that seriously.

To the developer(s) - you've made us fans for life. No kidding.

Decent but not great

Rode morning and afternoon and recorded separately, gave me an option to “Merge” the two and it deleted the whole afternoon which was the whole day but 3 runs. Maybe I need to brush up on my understanding of the English language but when I see merge I think combine. What happened to me seems a lot more like replacing or overwriting, which is in no way what I wanted. Besides that it is pretty much what it says it is. Slopes for the watch is cool, seeing my speed every run is nice. Would be much better if it told you how long your last run was at least on the watch, like a summary of the last run of some sort. Didn’t really get to see the little map thing it generates of your runs since it deleted most of my day. Decent but really could use some improvement. “Merge “is NOT synonymous with “overwrite with”. Very irritating.

The only app you need to go riding.

Coming from a Garmin Fenix device, I missed the Ski/Snowboard activity app built into the watch, I wanted something very similar. I've tried several apps in the last few month and then I cam across this app! If you have a cellular Apple Watch this is the only thing you'll need, It doesn't need a phone in order to work. This provides you with all the stats you'd need while riding. It even has the "Lock" feature built into the UI, so there's no accidental touches or pauses while riding. Compairing Slopes to my old Garmin Fenix the GPS signal and speed match up. I've used mine from 8am to 10pm riding on a single charge. This is the last app you'll ever want to use while riding hands down.

small developer = BIG DELIVERY/EPIC APP

There is not enough praise in the world to adequately justify how epic Slopes is. We all use multiple apps daily for every aspect of our lives. We know how difficult it can be to suggest improvements to these big app developers and get around the bugs and useless features. Not this app. Slopes just works.
This is honestly the only app on my entire phone that I get excited to open and use. The amount of detail that goes into Slopes is astonishing. It is super user friendly and I show it off to all my friends. This makes skiing that much more enjoyable off the this app. I open Slopes and start recording at the beginning of the day and close it after my last run. Then, when I get home, I get to relive the time on the mountains with the statistics/data and the interactive map.

Slopes gives me hope for new developers and specifically the small ones. You don’t need to be a multi million dollar corporation to build a beautiful app. Just a hard working, passionate person.

Thank you this app for being the most epic app I have ever used. Can’t wait to ski again.

Love it!

The premium pass adds another level of enjoyment to my snowboarding life. Objective and accurate information about my time spent on the hill along with the ability to look back in time to compare and remind oneself of past adventures make Slopes my favorite.
While I don’t “share” info at this point I can see the value that this feature adds.
I especially like the abilty to delete runs/lifts for those days that I forget to turn off Slopes until I am home and only then realize that my drive back the cabin was included in my recording. Simple fix now to remove that from my stats.
Thanks for a great product and customer service!

It’s simple!

Giving this 4 stars only because I don’t have premium and I can’t rate the other features. I’ve only used this for one day on the mountain and it was awesome! Slopes is super simple to understand, super easy to use and I don’t have to worry about pausing Slopes for lifts and remembering to resume. If anyone is considering Slopes I highly recommend it, it’s pretty cool to not check it until the end of the day to see your stats. Bragging to your friends about your top speed or comparing how fast you can do a run is all super fun. The map that shows your runs is super cool because you can see side trials you took and save it for later. Honestly there’s just so much to love about Slopes and I can’t wait to use it the rest of the season!


By


Awesome App!

My family and I use this app and we love it. Slopes is easy to use and is pretty accurate for tracking and speed. My family does Apple family share, and we had an issue early in the season with only me being able to buy a this app season pass. I couldn’t share the pass either. I reached out to development and was contacted within 12 hours and my wife and son had the season pass on their phones the next day. So not only a awesome app, but A++ customer support. Looking forward to new features and improvements for next winter, like maybe being able to edit out your lunch break when you forget to pause.
