The 10 Best ski apps
Skiers can now have information on maps, avalanche conditions, or even the time they spend in the air in a jump, on their phones...
Make your own action sequences. Just decide how many photos per burst (2-9) and at what intervals to shoot (1s-250ms).
One of the best ski maps for European resorts. Use this to navigate your way around new locations.
This gives access to the Ski Club of Great Britain's snow reports from resorts around the world.
If you are skiing in North America, point your camera into the distance and this will display landmark names.
Fun if you get stuck on the lift. Control your neon-clad player as he hurtles down 36 different ski runs.
No more fumbling with gloves to take a call or picture – just shake your device with this app running.
Record speed, descent, distance and time skiing, and then produce averages for the day and season.
Ski Tracks uses your phone's GPS to track your runs. Its Geotagging feature gives the location of pictures.
This app tracks your speed, turn acceleration speed and, remarkably, even the time you spend in the air.
£6.99, iOS, Android
