15 best special apps for skiing and winter sports

As winter temperatures slowly descend in France, it’s time to see what the App Store has to offer in terms of winter sports apps. This is an opportunity to update this particular “snow” file.

Let’s take a look together and see how the iPhone can come in handy with a variety of apps and games to keep your jacket on on the slopes or at the resort.

Before you go

12-minute ski practice slopes are appropriate

You can prepare well to avoid harming yourself. That’s what this program offers. A complete training program to get in shape on the slopes and avoid all or almost all injuries. Don’t wait any longer to get started!

Walking and skiing at the resort

To make your holiday trip more enjoyable, iPhone.fr editors have worked hard to offer you a special software file to use on your holiday trip.

Slope conditions and weather

This is a program that will be very useful for all skiers who want to be sure about the weather on the slopes of the resort they are interested in. The LandWebcams featured here provide visual and weather overviews of several thousand locations around the world via webcams. Many ski resorts are especially available. There’s nothing better than seeing the sun shine on the slopes or the gray under there.

On the roads

Skiinfo Ski & Snow

Simplicity is the key here, but the information is especially complete. The highly rated Skiinfo app offers snow conditions for many resorts in France and around the world. In addition, it is possible to refer to the comments of those who are already there.

4Riders Ski

Here is an app that is deceptive in its concept as well as in its cartographic background. As we have seen in this article, it offers a 3D repeatable cartography with slopes and lifts for many stations (but not all). It allows you to find your directions as well as follow your tribe. It also shows routes to find friends or family. A very nice realization to try on the spot!

Mountain Live

Mountain Live is here to add a little more fun to the slopes. In addition to measuring performance, it offers you to challenge your friends and climb to the top of the world rankings by earning badges or participating in the various events offered. In short, something to add some spice to your ski holiday while staying focused! The app also maintains weather conditions, snow data and news about the opening of the slopes for more than 200 resorts.


This is an app for those who love skiing and want to know everything about their performance. Slopes can record speed, distance covered, number of jumps, time in the air…

Ski trails

It is not very beautiful in its presentation, but it is effective. This app is dedicated to the skiing and snowboarding experience. Like Runtastic, it will save and calculate the route: maximum speed, distance covered, altitude, etc. It also stores photos taken on tracks and streams music from your iPhone library. It also offers an extension for the Apple Watch, one of the few to integrate this feature, yet very practical on the slopes!

Alpine resorts

Small and large stations have their own iPhone application. Here are a few: the list is not complete, so enter the name of your station in the App Store!

Based on almost the same model for each station, these specific programs are rich in information: an interactive map of the slopes with the opening and closing of the slopes and ski lifts in real time, geolocation in the domain, webcams and weather conditions, as well as restaurants in the city, altitude, assistance Stations and even, because it can always be used, toilets!

Also “Where’s the T?” thanks to the feature, it will be possible to easily find your friends and arrange to meet them on the slopes. The “Myski” function will allow you to record your performance throughout the day (distance covered, elevation gain, maximum speed, etc.). Augmented reality and practical and touristic information are also available to know the name of the peaks.

It’s up to you to tailor your shopping to your vacation destination:

And in the Pyrenees

There is also an iPhone app for resorts in the Pyrenees. Here are a few.

Snow games

There are sledding and snow games for those who can’t wait to go on winter vacation, relax in the evening after an intense day of skiing, or even put on their skis.

Kayak Safari 2

Go down the snowy slopes in 3D, ski or snowboard, while jumping, flying and trying to avoid many obstacles. Fast, fun and addictive, this game is successful, inexpensive and designed for young players as well as older ones. Up to 4 players can play in local multiplayer.

Alton’s Adventure

It is an endless racing game where the player has to go as far as possible while avoiding obstacles, performing tricks and collecting rewards through spectacular scenery along the way.

In 2016, it was the first game to take advantage of the haptic feedback of the latest iPhones. More information can be found here.

Also, find its sequel, Alto’s Odyssey, which, as seen here, failed to deceive us.

But also

By the way… Do you use or plan to use these programs on the slopes? Of course there are others, feel free to report them and share your thoughts in the comments!
