Last time I went skiing, I ran the speedview app on my droidx. It's a gps based speedometer with your car in mind but I thought, why not for skiing too? It runs in the background so you just put your phone in your pocket and forget about it.
A few cool things about it:
- records maximum speed (mine was 50mph!)
- has a "speed graph". Looks like an ekg, shows a flat line when you're on the chair, then spikes where you are actually skiing. By counting the flats you can count the number of runs you made. (I always lose track). Also cool to find a high speed chair travels 10 mph!
- tells you how many miles you traveled, but includes the lift rides as well.
- you can export the data so you can keep track if you like
Best part it's a totally free app! Anyone try this or any other speedometer app?
