Crystal Ski Holidays will release a new version of its Ski Explorer app this winter. Designed as a pocket tool to help skiers and their friends to get the most of the mountain, it introduces a number of cutting-edge features.
The new version includes the following innovations:
- Find my Friends feature allows you to find your friends or family wherever they are on the mountain using GPS. You can easily create a group, connect to your friends and family, and see them marked on a piste map so you can work out where best to meet. You can also message or call them directly from the app.
- Find ski routes recommended by our expert resort teams and rated by skiers. Routes are simply explained with point to point details and graphical maps. You can then rate and share each run.
- The tracking feature enables you to monitor and track distance covered as well as speed, altitude and duration, all shareable via Facebook.
All the features from version 1.0, released in December 2013, have been retained:
- Latest snow reports
- Piste maps and resort maps
- GPS tracking
- Resort information
Tamsin Todd, managing director Crystal Ski Holidays: “Skiing is fundamentally a social activity that people love to do together. With this app, skiers can spend less time searching for each other and more time exploring and sharing the best ski routes, and enjoying all that ski resorts have to offer.”
The Ski Explorer app will be available in the Apple app store for iPhones and in Google Play for Android this winter. It’s free of charge and can be used by all skiers.
