We usually showcase one app each month, but with the winter sports season in full-swing we thought we’d share some of the best apps out there for those who like to travel to colder climates to have a bit of outdoor fun!
iTrailMap: Ski and Snowboard Trail Maps
This free app is packed with all the info you need out on the piste. iTrailMap has maps of loads of ski and snowboards resorts, and because they are downloaded and stored on your phone, you don’t need signal to be able to use them! However, if you have got signal, it also has a nifty GPS function too.
Zumobi Ski and Snow Report
Another free app that will come in useful whilst traversing snowy trails. Zumobi Ski and Snow Report has had a fresh new face ready for the 2015 ski season to make finding the critical snow and weather information you need easy. As well as snow depth data for base and top and a five-day forecast, the app is blessed with livecam feeds and social media buttons so you can gather a group easily for a fun day out.
Snow Fitness Workouts – Skiing & Snowboarding Exercises
Get in shape before you hit the slopes! Snow Fitness Workouts has more than 100 workout sessions designed to target key muscle groups to build strength and promote stamina. Each one is ready to go, no planning needed. The balanced workouts aim to reduce the likelihood of injury during daredevil activities in the snow.
Don’t forget your Wintersports Insurance! Even if you have been doing your exercises à la Snow Fitness, have taken the necessary precautions from your Zumobi snow report, and have stuck to the right trail as advised by iTrailMap – accidents can, and do happen – so make sure you are covered by the right insurance for your needs. We can arrange wintersports travel insurance for:
