Do You Use a Ski App?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Hi everybody!

 

I am an undergraduate at Lehigh University and am in a product design class where we are trying to design an app to help skiers.  If you could take one minute to answer my seven question survey on Survey Monkey, it would really help us with our project.

 

Thanks so much!

You should add Alpine Replay to your list of apps.  I really like the design and the supporting website.

I did what every good citizen should do with spam, filling out many ridiculous answers. biggrin.gif

P.s. if you disable cookie or just delete the ones from surveymonkey, you can fill out as many as you want.

The kids in school, why not help him out. Took maybe a couple minutes to fill out.

Too many of these "students" asking for surveys on various forums lately to believe. My bet it's the latest form of random people calling you at dinner time for your opinion.

Here I even have a template, Hi my name is (insert name) and I'm a student from (insert place), I'm doing research on (insert vague subject) and I would be (insert polite words) if you would fill (insert surveymonkey link).

I use SkiTracks bluetoothed to a GNS MFI 8270 GPS I wear in my glove so I'm not dependent on the iPhones GPS or cell reception.

 

I want to know everything about my ski day, elevation, vertical feet skied, slope angle, hours, runs. 

 

I'm big on product support and Core Coders are skiers and respond to questions about the product and are always updating it, responding to suggestions.

It's a win-win. If its a student, you help them out. If its somebody looking to build a ski app…go to it.  Skiers win either way.

Regardless of the survey, I tried all of the iPhone ski apps that show in an app store search. By far the two best were Ski Tracks and AlpineReplay. Of those two, Ski Tracks is the best as a stand-alone phone app, but AlpineReplay is really well designed and the rest of the services is pretty cool. As a combined phone plus web browser app I like it a lot.

I'm a SkiTracks fan because it is stand alone, I'm not a prisoner to AlpineRelay or getting used by them for getting them web traffic and advertising.

 

A lot of folks use the ski resort's own tracking software that reads the ski pass and gives an account of each day.

 

Deer Valley and Park City used to have SlopeTracker booths where you got GPS and printout at the end of the day but it was expensive and there were no files you could view and store on your PC just the printout.  I think they went out of business.  I also used SatSki which had dedicated GPS unit but they got bypassed by the GPS on the phones and the phone ski apps.

An example of Park City's ski tracking app.
