Ry_Guy2 - Worth the few bucks
If you’re like me and ski/snowboard several + times a year, then I’d def recommend you buy this app. It tracks and saves personal stats (speed, # of runs, vertical, etc) from you’re day on the slopes. It’s not a super sophisticated app, but rather a simple app that makes it fun to see how you didn’t the end of the day.
It’s easy to use. All I do is hit the Play button (start button) when I first arrive, and then it just runs and records in the background while I listen to music and enjoy the mountain. At lunch, I’ll hit the Pause button, and then will hit play again when I head back out. At the end of the day, you press the stop button, and save it.
Once saved, I’ll then review my stats from the day, and will compare them to previous days and/or previous ski trips that I saved to see how I did. It’s also fun to compare your stats with your friends to see who had the fastest speed, or the highest vertical, etc.
It’s also neat to review your trail map for the day, which shows each of your runs highlighted, and numbered so you can see where you went around the mountain that day (can also review any previously recorded day).
There may be better apps out there for recording/tracking your day’s ski stats (and other stuff perhaps), but if you’re just interested in reviewing your basic stats from that day, then you’ll be happy you purchased Ski Tracks.
Hope this helps someone, and you find it worth it like I do.
M1westwood - Great app
I’ve been using this for 4-5 years and really like it. It is set and forget. You just turn it on, throw your phone in your pocket or backpack and off you go. Not sure how the iPhone gets such a good GOS signal when not out in the open, but it seems to work all the time. I haven’t done much with it other than check my stats at the end of the day and see what we did. It’s really cool to know how much vertical and how many miles you've traveled. There’s more to it than that; you can store photos. It seems to be pretty accurate as far as mph, distances, showing your exact route, etc. but hard to say because there’s now way for me to verify the data with another tool.
Request for developer: It would be really great to have a picture page in the app that shows all of the pictures from the runs and you simply my scroll down the page through the pics and click on a pic to review that track. This way, if you remember a great feature on a mountain you can snap a pic of it in the app and easily use ski tracks later on to help find the exact run that got you there. People would love this if done with a slick interface.
Ldreese - Love this app! But One minor Suggestion
I love this app and that I can operate it from my Apple Watch! It so nice not to have to dig my phone out to start a track. I use it primarily for skijoring which I track as Dog Mushing in the app.
I have one complaint/suggestion. I wish I could start a dog mushing track from my phone. I know I can edit this later in SkiTracks, but it imports the run to my Health App where I can’t edit what type of track it is.
I would suggest a scroll through list of activities on the watch, or allow the user to choose what type of tracks can be started via the watch. I know this is a relatively minor thing, but it’s something I’ve been wishing for since I started using the app several years ago.
Phillipsdf - The Analyze function is buggy and destroys data
Update: I’m afraid I’ve lowered my rating of this app again, this time down to 2 stars. Apparently, using the Apple Watch to control the app is buggy as hell. 14,000 vertical feet translating to 68 miles of travel and other weirdness. But the worst is their ‘Analyze’ function: 12 runs/14,000 ft changes to 1 run/28 ft — and it appears that the function actually DESTROYS THE ORIGINAL DATA. To top it off the developer’s solution thus far is “well, don’t use the watch for this”. I’m now exploring alternatives.
This’ll be my third year using this app, this year adding an Apple Watch to my ecosystem. I stay with this app over the alternatives because it continues to focus on actual skiing while most of the others are turning into social apps that happen to track skiing as an afterthought.
My rating would be 5 stars if the developer would add turn tracking like they suggested they would a year ago. If another developer starts providing that, it may convince me to try a new app.
RoshuaJogers - Great until this season...
I've used this app since 2012 and it has always worked well. It's been good to see it improved along the way. Last year I was able to use it on my watch and I thought that was really awesome until today. At the end of a fantastic day of boarding it failed to transmit the data to my iPhone X. This was with the Apple Watch 2. All I have left of my data is the picture I took of the summary screen when I saw the "End" button was not responsive.
I have a few more days to be on the mountain this week and I can say I won't be using the watch app any more. Funny thing, this morning we were trying to install the app on my wife's AppleWatch 3 for her to use and it was no where in the lost of apps to install on the watch even though it was installed on her phone. I should've taken that as an omen.
Not a happy user of this watch app. It's gotta go from my watch and I'm going to see what my options are if any for data recovery and/or export.
Kane KS - Meets My Expectations
I have always wondered how fast I was going down the mountain. Now I know! It was also fun to “replay” my day. This app met my expectations of a GPS tracker.
Thank you for not having any in app purchases like your competitors. There is absolutely no justification to do that for an app like this.
If there was one thing I would like to see added, it would be the ability to edit a Track after saving it. While using it the first time, I forgot to pause the app when I got on a shuttle to go from one Ski area to another (Loveland Ski Area in Colorado has two areas that are accessible by shuttle) so the app recorded my ride in the shuttle. I could also see myself forgetting to stop recording only to remember on the drive home.
The Mace - Awesome ski tracking
I just started skiing again this season but have been into all sorts of fitness metrics on bikes, peloton etc and I was looking for my "fix" for skiing. This is it. I tried the light/free version just to see how things were and at $1.99 the full version is a no brainer. The lite version was great but limited on data sync and a few other things. Full version is awesome with great metrics, health sync, watch app etc.
I do some night skiing and the app didnt have an option to record sessions as that so I reached out to the developer and they immediately responded. Super friendly.
Highly recommend this app. They support other kinds of snow activities, cant comment on those.
Dave from Rome - Liability on your part
I believe this app may be contributing to a breed of skier trying to post a new high speed by the end of the day. I’ll confess that when I first used it, I puffed up my chest at cracking the speed of sound. I showed the app to a friend, he downloaded it, went out and came in boasting he had topped my speed! 56 mph on a blue trail! Then I noticed friends of mine posting speeds in excess of 60 MPH on trails populated by unpredictable snowboarders and beginner to intermediate skiers.
Speed is thrilling! I love it! The new skis allow you to carve very high speed turns. We become dangerous controlled missles. High speed skiers defend themselves by saying they are in control.
This past winter I turned the app off during a winter ski vacation. I tried to focus on going slower and enjoying the view. I got hit by a kamikaze not far from the base of Sterling at Deer Valley. 10 breaks in 7 ribs, pneumothorax, punctured lung, and a bit of internal bleeding. I’m old on a blood thinner. Surgery and 6 days in the Intermountain Trauma Center.
Was it the apps fault? No but the topic of Max Speed bragging came up in discussions afterwards. My neighbors wife got taken out and their child almost killed by a straight line boarder.
The app is great for seeing where you went and how much vertical or steepness.
Food for thought! I’m lucky to be alive. There are some that are not.
Dexhiker - Great app but last update broke some stats
I have used this app for several years now for snowshoeing and hiking. I really like the simple display and variety of stats. The stats (with the exception of the maximum mph ) have compared favorably with other similar apps. Unfortunately, the last update to v4.6.1 broke the calculation of ascent and descent. I compared the same 4 mile hike before and after the update and the after footage was way off, much too high. Also compared a mountain hike where the trail ascent had been professionally determined. Similarly the ascent number was much too high. This has been reported to the coders.
Mr Squirrel - Was a great app, until this week.
I have used this app for years with no complaints, until this week it tracked how many runs you did and how much you skied downhill. Now it combines both ascent and descent making it kinda useless (you could already see ascent info in a smaller section before) and doesn’t display the number of runs anymore but instead shows the ascent slope which is a totally useless metric.
EDIT: apparently now you have to select the activity as “skiing” in the little menu you get on the button on the top right to get it to display the way it always used to. They need to either make there be a default setting that comes across unless you change it or have it be a part of the “start” process yo select an activity.
AvalancheAirik - Watch to phone app communication = bleh
Sure wish the watch app correctly communicated with the app on my phone to accurately show the status. Paused tracking on my watch, then resumed it on my watch. Showed it was recording. 45 min I checked my phone because the watch vertical seemed off and noticed it never actually started recording. Watch shows the correct time elapsed... I do full stack web development and I use promises to confirm whether the action on the server was successful... if not then reflect that on the browser/client side. I don’t see how this app shouldn’t work the same way.
Other than that, great app overall. Been using for 5 seasons and love the updates over that time... just wish the watch communication with phone worked better.
BrucePSU - Exceeds Expectations
I’m work in the ski industry and have been using this app for over five years. In my opinion it’s still one of the best!
It does not use much battery power even when my days take me beyond 40,000 feet of vertical. This does everything you would expect and does it well. Was also pleasantly surprised to find that it tracked me thru the mountains of Europe while skiing from town to town. The Apple watch interface is awesome as well. I could go on about how it interacts with health and music apps but you can explorer those features for yourself… Enjoy.
Swisspeddler - Going backwards
The complication for Apple Watch is no longer available. When I wrote support about this in September they told me that it had been redone and would be available in the next update which would be available in a few weeks as final testing was almost done. Well ski season is now starting and no update and no complication.
Last year I also had issues several times syncing between Watch and phone. Almost lost my data but then several hours later it miraculously appeared. Noticed in the reviews that others had this problem as well but not everyone ended up getting their data.
Have used te app for at least 5 years and was super happy but starting to wonder.
Megaman14 - Great app, one recommendation
Love this app, very simple interface to use and check in on your skiing/snowboarding for the day. Speeds can be a little iffy but with gps and terrain, they do a great job with what they’ve got.
Only gripe is that when you forget to turn it off and drive away from the resort, there is no way to fix the mistake. I would recommend the ability to delete runs on an individual basis or a slider bar on runs to adjust the start/end times. OR figure out what Trace Snow did where it detects you are in the car and won’t record that data. Just the one thing missing to go from 4->5
Pgh6687 - Vertical reporting???
Love it…many years strong!! However this year I noticed that the vertical skied main reference is the “total vertical” rather than “vertical skied” or “downhill vertical” as it’s been in the previous years. This skews the reported stats. Can this be changed back to report as the main “vertical” to be the “downhill vertical” through some setting? Or does it need to be on an app update? I’d think I’m not the only person that doesn’t like this. When a skier talks “vertical “ that they skied, it’s not usually including the uphill travel. Thank you!
Coe_driver - Good app but would like some changes
This app is great. You turn it on, put it in your pocket and enjoy your ride. I love the ability to trim my ride at the end of days when I leave the app recording. You get a few miles down the road and your data is off, it’s nice to be able to make your runs more accurate. I would like to see it work better with my Apple Watch. Other than that it’s straight forward, easy to use and view. Totally recommend if you want to track your runs.
Dirtyharry5 - Great app, I have a suggestion!
I love this app! I have been using it for two years now and it’s so cool to track the amount of runs I have done, my elevation, distance and speed skied among other things.
One thing I forget to occasionally do is stop my track once I’m done skiing. So, I was hoping you guys could add a feature in the analysis tab of the past stats that could delete your run! This would make my daily, along with yearly stats, much more accurate.
I hope you take this into consideration! Thank you very much for an awesome app, happy powder hunting!
Krispenhartung - Great app but needs auto pause
I have used this app a few times for classic Nordic skiing on my Apple Watch series 5. The app works great and has no issues using my Wahoo heart sensor chest strap in place of the Apple Watch heart rate sensor. My only requests are as follows: First, add an auto pause feature. So if I stop for any reason, the timer stops. Second, add the ability to add min and max heart rates and heart zones. Third, allow user customized screens. As it stands, without these features, I will likely switch to a Garmin fitness watch. The app has a lot of potential though, and for the price the premium version is unbeatable.
Gadildafissh - I love this app!
I use it every time I go snowboarding without fail. There are so many useful features and data. I would like to suggest a couple features that I would love to see in the future: ability to edit my track in cases where I forget to stop it before driving, ability to set elevation changes that must be met before the app counts another run(for when I’m in the park and walk back to hit a feature multiple times). I would pay for these features and more.
Rpooch - Great app
Use this app every time I ski. Very accurate compare to an older garmin edge 305. I haven’t noticed any problems with battery life. The integration with watch has improved. I just noticed you can now start and pause your day from the watch without pulling out the phone. I keep the phone in my jacket pocket. iPhone 6 works with no issues. Plan on digging out my old iPhone 5 and see if I can plant it on my son since he at time skis off with his race mates will I ski with his younger brother. I upload data to garmin connect to view on any browser.
Hongwu1 - Something went haywire
I’ve used this app for over 8 seasons. Something went haywire this year. About a third of my runs are no longer tracked, and I’m on mountains that are well covered by 5g/lte. There seems to be some bug where if you stop for a while, say for lunch, it won’t pick back up no matter what you do.
Today after a 30 minute lunch, I knew to check it and if it was still around tracking. It had stopped. I saved what I had, started over, and it didn’t take until the 4th attempt, after I had skied another 5-10,000 feet of vertical. As an end user, I wouldn’t be able to guess what’s going on. Looking at my Google location history, that was tracking where I was...so?
Wiets - Great app but have one suggestion
Very happy with the app. I have been using it to track my skiing for 10 years! Also very happy that you added the Apple Watch functionality, it saves having to take out phone in the cold. My only suggestion would be to allow editing: shortening the elapsed time or deleting the last run. Its happened to me a few times that I left on ski tracks while driving home. It destroys the statistics. I’d rather delete the last run then delete the entire day.
DS56128 - Easy to use and accurate
So far so good. I've used the app for 10 ski days thus far, and its pretty cool. Nerdy, for sure. But its neat seeing your "stats" for the day. I've checked the app against my car speedometer, and other people's apps, and it seems super close (for the speedometer function). Setting my Iphone to low power mode makes the phone battery last a long time, despite the cold. Switching it to airplane mode helps even more. Overall, well worth the $0.99.
Norybrenrut - One ov the Best App’s ever if you Ski/Board
Best app Ever for keeping track ov ur day.
Keeps track ov Everything & DEAD on for location tracking which makes it Awesome for sking the trees. B cool if they added topo lines as an option 👍 maybe they do🤔 never looked I guess. So Happy just as is. Had the app for 3 years now & I can go back & see my 1st season w/Ski Tracks🎉🎉. Its fun to break out the phone on the chair and look at ur current day. People sitting next 2u are like - Whatttt😳😳
And go download the App👍🎉
GREAT APP👍🎉🎉. Thanks Ski Tracks🙏🙏
James_Andrew91 - Use every ski trip
I love using this app and comparing max and avg speeds and distance travelled with my friends when skiing.
Only one issue — you can’t delete individual runs. This is an issue because sometimes I’ll forget to turn the app off when I get in the car after a day of skiing, and it’ll count the car ride as a run or multiple runs. That ruins my stats for the day because I can’t simply delete the “run” that was actually the car ride.
B.J.B.123 - Great app - accurate?
I think it’s the best app. Ran 3 apps today and started and stopped all within seconds of one another. Other than the time they all were surprisingly different. Vertical feet seemed to be the biggest culprit. I wonder which is most accurate? An online search yielded reviewers preferences but not an accuracy comparison. Anyway maybe SkiTrac could investigate. The app is always a top choice.
Developers - please integrate with Strava. That’s why I purchased an a secondary source in the first place.
N8r1 - App was great…until it wasn’t
I’ve used this app for years and until this week it worked great. Now with the most recent update it’s showing ascent vs descent, and tripling the number of actual runs I did. Fix it and I’ll fix my rating.
2/3 update: they tried to fix the issue and are halfway there, but something is still off. Now whenever the ski lift levels off before going up again, it thinks you skied for a brief few seconds and adds a 20-30 foot ‘run’ in. I did 24 runs yesterday and the app thinks I did 37. It never did this before.
UncleSteveI - Very Well Done
Used this on a recent 6-day ski trip to track our runs, speed, map - it does everything you want in ski tracking and nothing you don't. You can tell the developers really know what they are doing. The watch app is basic but useful and works well. No crashing or glitches on the phone or the watch, though it didn't work until upgrading to WatchOS 4.2.
After running the GPS and tracking all day, I was surprised to see only a fraction of the battery on my iPhone 8 was used. Very impressive.
Suggested improvements: - Better maps that show ski runs (uses the Apple Maps built-in, which doesn't - Google maps does) - Controls in the watch app to start/stop, etc. I don't want to drop my phone from a lift! - Enable the snow sports workout type on other Watch models than Series 3.
Zafira91 - Great app! A small feature request though...
I really like the app! And on top of that, customer service is super responsive, I was very pleased with that experience.
Can I ask for a feature request, though? I’ve noticed that I can pair the app with an Apple Watch, but I have a Fitbit smartwatch. Can you also develop the app for the Fitbit and/or enable me to pair it as well? There is some other app for the Fitbit but I wanted to use Ski tracks :(
MichaelinIV - Awesome app
Not using Apple Watch so no comments about it.
This app rocks for all my ski needs. The map and edit functions are great for those occasions when I forget to turn it off after skiing. Just edit the end of the runs. Easy.
My want list:
Merge runs over multiple days on the same mountain to create a composite of all runs on a given mountain. This would be very helpful in finding runs that haven’t been explored.
Annotate where falls or rests appear.
This would be great to show where and how often we rest or fall.
Auto merge photos with ski route. Use the gps to link photos to places on the ski map to show where photos were taken during the course of a ski day. It would require accessing the photo album and pinpointing the location on the ski map or time of day.
Snarkwaffle - So many features!
I’ve been using this app for about three seasons now, and it has always impressed me with its accuracy and features. Even now, in the off season, I can look back through each trip and remember all the great (or not so great) times I’ve had over the last couple of years. It struck me that it was probably time to review this app as I sat in the middle of the off season thinking about a skiing app. 11/10 would recommend.
SkiingYooper - Very nice app
I love being able to look at my max. speed, distance, vertical, and path on the google earth map. It's worth purchasing the full app to get the extra features.
There could be a few improvements yet. I often have to re-name the ski resort. It does not work well on small hills (under 350 ft.). And it would be nice if the trim tool could be used to set start and end points for individual runs and lifts within your track.
Overall a very nice app, well worth the price!
Rosedine - Speed average
This app does do a few cool things, but the average speed includes time that you a stopped and not moving as well as time that you are on the chair lift. You can get you phone out and pause the app before and fire a run, but my fingers get cold, and I don’t like to do that.
It would also be nice if it would tell you how long each run takes, so you can compare to see if you’re getting faster. It’s a bit of a search for the run times and I think it includes the lifts again
Nice graphs of the elevation, and satellite view of the resort
GLCMACL - Great App, Really fun and can be very highly recommended.
Helpful to know where you haven’t skied as well as where you tend to ski. Has definitely saved us several times in whiteout conditions. One wish is that you could add days when you don’t remember to start it or add some vertical when you start it late. Very helpful when helping someone who hasn’t been to a resort before. Has everything and more than what I would think of.
Awayagain - Love the App!
I like being able to “compete” with friends via screenshots of the stats. I do have a couple of suggestions though: I would like to see a “Groomers” category, for those days when we don’t venture into the crud. I would also like to be able to delete the last run from the totals for those days we forget to stop the App before driving down the mountain. SMH. We’ve all done it.
Keep up the great work!
CuriousMo - Watch
Ski tracks for Apple Watch is great. Doesn’t seem to take a lot of battery. Records your calories into your exercise app on your phone. Exports your runs into your phone Ski tracks app at the end of the day. Better than running it on your phone all day. Wish it would start recording automatically when it sees you skiing. Lost a half day of data when I forgot to resume recording after lunch.
Tojo25 - Best ski recording app
I love this app, and use it all the time. I have tested out competitor apps and by and far Ski Tracks is the best, and I always come back to it.
A couple of friendly suggestions/requests to the devs: can you please allow more selections on Apple Watch? I backcountry ski/ski tour often and would love to be able to do so from Apple Watch. Additionally, is there a way you could enable pinning on maps after recording?
Thanks for a great tool!
Brechdofragen - Good iPhone app. Apple Watch not as much
First thing’s first: this app works great and by all my tests, seems to be pretty darn accurate at least for the casual snowboarder that just wants a fun way to look at their day.
I really enjoy being able to quantify how hard I worked after a day of riding and this lets you break down the information quite well. Just prepare to keep your phone buried and warm to ensure your battery doesn’t die.
The bad, the Apple Watch app seems to be flawed. I like it when it works, but it seems to display the wrong information almost always. For me it seems to never think I stopped snowboarding and displays ridiculous multi day duration times.
Highly recommend just would like them to fix the Apple Watch integration as that was a big selling point for me.
Red$kin - Does the job!
I have been using Ski Tracks (and lite) for several years. Only a few hiccups over those years - I always make sure to leave background apps on refresh and since - no problems. Nice way to have a record of the runs you make over the day and season. Speed, number of runs made, etc. Map overlay feature gives you a nice visual of the days conclusion on f how much terrain covered.
Userdww - Fantastic!
Best app I have seen for tracking your ski day. So interesting to look at the stats! Adding comments and conditions is a great way to remember the day.
The downside is that this app will eat your battery so start the day off at 100%!
Would like ability to edit or delete ski runs if you accidentally hop in the truck and forget to turn this off!
Haireball5 - Excellent
I love this app. It works perfect on every mountain I have ever been on. The fact that you can operate it on your Apple Watch makes it even better. I had an issue syncing my with my new phone and contacted customer service. Within 24 hours they emailed me with a password reset. The app and customer service is great and I recommend this app to all outdoor enthusiasts.
Dido Dee - Could be perfect
It’s a great App and I love it but could be so much better without too much work. The lift could very easily say “which lift” (ie Payday Express rather than Lift 1) and the run could easily say which run which would be brilliant for looking back on a previous visit. As it is it’s very awkward to try and see where you’ve been although granted it’s possible. Even the Epic App which is rubbish tracks the lift data. So come on Ski Tracks get that little mod done to make this app great.
MidWest skier - Make it able to upload to Strava
This is a good app, but if it could sync with Strava which has all my other workouts it would be great. Many other apps can already do this. Is it a licensing or cost issue? I have free apps that can do this, but I even have the paid Ski Tracks app.
Also, if it could break out the time for a run down a slope it would be great, vs combining it with the time to go up a lift too.
FYI if you’re interested in feedback.
LizardJedi - Love it - one thing though...
Gives good telemetry, easy to use, doesn't kill my battery - great!
My one big request is - being able to edit/delete runs after saving the track. I have this bad habit of forgetting to turn the track off until I'm driving down the road - messes with my data! Being able to edit/delete chunks, and recalculate averages, would be awesome.
ZZzZzZzKekjnejfjwbbf - Great App could use some improvements
Great app for tracking stats and how many runs you do.
However it could be improved by implementing a feature to automatically stop recording when you leave the ski hill. I often forget to stop recording and then my stats get messed up due to the drive home.
Overall great app
Jimmy-Jowles - Love this app
Use this app every time we ski. Simple interface, easy to use, great stats. Nice to know number of runs, time, speed, elevation and the map for each run. Nothing fancy or over bloated interface which I really like. Sure like others I’ve forgot to turn it off and it records my 70mph drive home. But for just getting the basics it is perfect.
Sundude_99 - Conflict with IOS (Jan 19)
I upgraded from the free version to the paid version. I really like the features, especially the data and mapping, however there appears to be conflicts with the current version of IOS. The app shuts down my 6s as in completely turns it off and I have to restart the phone. Second it does some odd things with battery. Starting with a fully charged phone it quickly goes down to single digit percents. Upon restart the phone shows 91% so something screwy is going on. While I like the idea I can’t recommend the app till this is corrected.
Love to ski mb - Run count
In the skiing mode, the app should allow for a setting for a minimum vertical before counting it as a run. Very iftern I will do 18 or 20 runs a day and the app will record 21 to 23 runs because there may be 3 times during the day that I went down say 40 feet and it counts it as a separate run. So either a minimum vertical or only after going up a certain vertical do you count it as a run.
Buka405 - Must have for skiing! - one recommendation
This is a great app and does everything it says it does, and well. It has my full recommendation and is well worth the price.
One thing I wish it included was Siri compatibility. If while I was skii I could press my head phone button and say "what's my top speed", "how far have I gone", "pause track" "start track" etc. that would be great!
Bob-Ohh - Does Not Share Account Between Lite & Full Versions
Like the app but it’s requiring me to create a separate account as I transition from lite to full version. Also had to check website to figure out how to move data to full version. I expected as I paid for full version it would have upgraded in place the lite version. Instead it created a “duplicate” app on my phone. 😩

Crusty181 - Nifty little App
Used the App at Falls Creek for a week. It missed a few runs, but all in all picked up most and produced some interesting stats. The App has a built in iPhone camera function which records the position of the image on the map/run. With the default 20% battery shut off, I only managed to get 5.5 hours at best, but I personally wouldn't fault the App on that basis. It has a player which shows a dot on the map representing you skiing around the place .... an interesting novelty.
The accuracy seemed pretty good with all multiple running very close together on the map
Would be more versatile App for me if it cold be used for other activities such as off road mountain biking and motorbiking.
The max speed display just begging you to go faster can be a little dangerous for those that might like to push the envelope a little too much.
Pawly4 - Unreliable with Applewatch
Having previously used this app reliably over the years, I was disappointed with the unreliability of the app when using my Apple Watch to record my tracks. Despite a fully charged battery, the app would stop recording every now and then and it would not save any of the previous data. My whole morning of snowboarding is missing from my records on multiple days. Unlike other ski apps, Ski-tracks does not seem to have any Apple Watch complications available. This has been a great app over the years, it would be a shame to switch to another app if the above problems don’t get fixed.
Ramsi23 - Love this app for the snow
I’ve used other apps for tracking my days on the snow but Ski Tracks wins every time. It doesn’t use the phone battery as much as others do. There’s plenty of information at your finger tips, 3D mapping, access to your music library and just a well thought out app. It’s fit for purpose. Get this app, you won’t regret it.
Julius100BC - Great app
Been using it for years. Just found a bug however: when you pause a track and resume it only shows the top speed from the second stint for the day rather than the top for the whole day
Jakey_g - Could seriously use an update....
When charging for an app, expectation is that is doesn't look like it was built for iPhone 3, with instructions that reference this device. Works for the most part, but is well below par when it comes to something people are forking out money for. Should have gone with the free version first to check I guess.
Mic1001 - What a great app
This app works really well. Data is accurate and a lot of thought has been put into the interface and application features.
Laser2dex - Over all a good app
Really solid app, needs more features, eg: Would love to see an option to name the individual runs / lifts, perhaps build up a database of resorts and runs, ability to display weather would be absolutely fantastic!
Jono2012 - Best app for tracking snow time
Great simple design does what it says on the sticker and does it really well.
Question: is there a way to see lift upload time?
H2oh3o - Not importing from health
I have used the watch to track my snowboarding session and while it shows up in health, the app doesn't show it to import it. I will review the tracking when i use the app and not apples one to track the session
Isabelleburton - Easy to use and fun stats to have
Does what it says , I used free version for a few days then upgraded. Using on iphone 8. Thanks to developers
Anon burr sir - No way to delete the car drive
Spent all day skiing and forgot to turn off the app. Now I can't delete the 90km car drive after a solid days skiing. This app lacks very basic features.
Matsaputzray - Great App
The best skiing app for anyone who likes performance stats.
KSG1080 - The best app ever
I'v been using this app since 2010 and it's the first app I put on my phone when I get a new one. It totally revitalised my skiing I went from a bit of a lul in a season to still wanting to get out every day even when it was April and practically no snow anywhere, trying to beat my top score or biggest air. We have had so many fun games in resort trying to see who can get the highest speed and who can track most of the mountain in one day.
Actually my favourite app in the world. Recommend to anyone- even my brother who spent one whole day completing only one run with one lift top speed 4mph...
5udz - Awesome App!
This is a great app for those who love tracking their statistics. Not quite 100% perfect but just about there. Didn't pick up two short Summit runs and a lift but otherwise all good. Easy to use, doesn't drain your battery, great features. Used at Mt Buller yesterday afternoon. Would be good to be able to email a snapshot of all stats with your tracked map on a brochure-style page at the end of the day.
GPR-Aus - Brilliant
Only discovered towards the end of our trip after using a much more expensive and inferior app. So disappointed that I had not found this earlier. This is just the best Ski app out there. I have no hesitation in recommending. Detail, graphics and layout have been well thought out with clearly some good thinking applied by the developers. This makes this a real pleasure to use. Well done and THANKS!
80sDVA - Awesome app
Three of us each using it here in niseko, japan on our iphones. Works great, lots of detailed info. So easy to use, just press start and throw it in your pocket. No need to have mobile data or 3g switched on. Easy to upload data/graphs to facbook etc. Same creators make a Bike app too, will def be using that one when we get back home to Brisbane, Australia.
Smg819 - Only thing missing is google maps option
Fantastic app! Only thing that could improve it is having the option to use google maps or apple maps (like many other apps now have).
Sallerding - Love this app
What a great app. Just finished 1week of skiing and was able to review each of the days skiing in great detail. Have some suggestions for later that would make this great app even better but none of which detract on giving this app 5 stars.
Dane the snowboarder - Best ski app!
Must have for any skier or snowboarder. Great for comparing days and measuring progression.
Export your tracks into google earth an make all your friends jealous. My only wish that one day I get more export options such as export runs only. This app is so good I'd be happy to pay more to the developers!
SkiAussie - Great App!
Spent 10 days in Niseko Japan and loved this app. Turned off 3G and data roaming, and still worked really well with long battery life (I was listening to music on my iPhone most of the time we were on the mountain).
Alexlees - Awesome
Great app, I'm surprised nobody thought of this sooner. It can distinguish lifts from runs and gives great stats of all your runs. Tried it in Thredbo Australia with an iPhone4, works very well, no problems and not too savage on the battery. $1.19, can't go wrong.
Oscarp78910 - I think you should add Spotify to the music part
Great Relly helpful
MettleJ - Very handy app
I love this app, my 5yr old son goes Ski training with instructors & I leave my phone in his pocket with Ski Tracks on. When he finishes his class, I can monitor his progress & daily activities with ease & confidence. Excellent app!
Goodspons - This is fabulous
This is the best app I have bought. Works so well. Everyone I have shown this to has been amazed. Skiers (and ok, boarders too) download this now...
PeakPics - Hiking essential
Used it to find my way out of very low visibility. Show it to a few, all bought it straight away.
Rickles92 - Great app! But update!
Great app guys. By far the best ski app out there. But seriously. Update your app guys! Bit annoying with the smaller screen on the iPhone 5!
Mcknightpl - Amazing App
I could not want more in an app that tracks my boarding or skiing! Highly recommend!
Poitaf30 - Fabulous
Great value for money. Works perfectly. All the info and features you would ever want. Thanks!
Paul.shelb - Brilliant
So simple and yet so informative. Doesn't destroy battery life either. Great app!
Mikeg2510 - Great App
Just back from Canada, worked great and now have fantastic data for memories and bragging rights with mates. Great app.
Mazman1000 - Great app
Cheap with heaps of good info, great to compare different days and different runs!
Tigerwebb - Ski tracks
Love the App
Use it all the time - keep up the good work!
Groover66 - Excellent app!!
Fantastic app!! Records so much info and provides map and graphs. Love the max speed!!
Juzzzzzzi0 - Brilliant App
Very good app, provides very in depth statistics and is really useful!
Stig Beater - Best ski app
Great stuff. Love all the data collected for that apré ski discourse.
Need to add tobogganing as an activity.
SPEED EXCED INFINITY - Cool, cheap App wish I found it sooner!
Boys Australia - Mad ap
Just loved it. I got 72 km on the snowboard
Bluedog242 - It's lasted all day
I was lucky enough to try this App on a recent trip to Lake Tahoe
It worked as advertised and it's great see how far & fast you've gone (Skied 30km, no wonder I was rooted)
Battery lasted for over 5 hours before my battery dropped to 20% when it pauses to save battery (20 month old 3GS & my battery not what it used to be)
Haven't checked performance at Australian ski fields, hence why it's only 4 stars, plus 1 run had me overshooting into the car park,
Lachykennedy - iPhone plus model screen optimisation needed
Can't ski without it now!
Great too now that it is compatible with Apple Watch to quickly see speed and altitude!
It would be great to see optimisation for iPhone plus models in time for the 2016/17 season... scaling is needed and potential to display additional info on screen!

Miller😄 - What happened??
I signed back in this year and it only synced to 2016. What happened to the last few years? I know I recorded. Frustrating as I paid for the full version.
Tumpit - Fun app!
Tried out SkiTracks Lite before purchasing. Liked it enough to buy it, but the 3 runs I tracked with the lite version weren’t imported - bit disappointing. But love the app.
Sportsfan489 - Poor
Can't get this app to work. It tracks all day long but only shows stats for one run, which I would guess to be the first of the day. For example, I skied for 5 hours yesterday. The app showed 5 hours of skiing but said I skied 3 kms. Something isn't right. User manual says nothing about it. Back to the drawing board.
69-Anon-69 - Long time user feature request
Love this app and have been using it for years as a free app and had to purchase. I be tried several but by far this is my fav. I would love to see a feature added namely the ability to add a complication for Applewatch. I have a dedicated snow sports watch face with complications to all the apps I use whilst skiing and wish I could simply tap the complication to open the app from the watch face.
RaFiko - Great app
Love this app and using it for the last 4 years.
Would love to have the weather ( temp, wind).
Dissss - Best ski app!
Love using this app. It’s a must have.
Jonah727 - Awesome app but
App is great and works awesome! One thing you guys please please need to add is being able to delete runs for when you forget to shut the app off and get in the car, it ruins all your stats for the day.
If you made it so the runs on the map when you select it could be deleted that would make this app 5 star for me.
Duncanmcneil - Doesnt work
This app only worked for one day. Since then it only tracks the “duration”. Tried reinstalling, and setting my settings to allow. Still doesnt work, dont buy it
Gmo22222222/ - Needs cropping functionality
The app is great. The only thing that it needs is cropping for those times that you forget to stop the app.
Mark Supertramp - Love this app!
Great app! It’s accurate and well worth purchasing. Would love to see some weather/precipitation integration so I can get a complete picture of past runs and seasons . By far the best one I’ve tried with my iPhone and works great with my health app and fitness tracking. Can’t wait till spring to try the bike app.
Alimoges - Nombre de descentes
Un ami et moi avons téléchargé votre app payante et nous avons comparé les données
J’ai fait 22 descentes tandis que mon ami a 25 descentes
Notrfjk - it could done better
the app is great.but it could done better. First you can’t delete just one or two run. Cause one day you will forget close the app and drive home. The app will record it. Which you can’t delete the specific run. You have to delete the entire run for the day. Which is sad.
SebSawler - Best app for skiing!
This is by far my favourite app to record my skiing. I love how easy and simple you can record, other apps you need to take your phone out and start the recording every time you go up the lift but with this you turn it on and just leave it in your pocket until you are done skiing and it will automatically get rid of chairlift rides so it doesn’t count that as your overall time/distance. Great app that you should definitely consider!
Laure1957 - Données absentes sur Apple Watch
Apple Watch série 7
Sur l'Apple Watch, l'application compte le temps mais n'affiche aucune autre données. Rien trouvé pour régler le problème.
Si je démarre l'application directement sur le iPhone , ça fonctionne sur l'iPhone. Toutefois, aucune donnée ne s'affiche sur la montre.
Natalieskatily - Love the stats
Reni5 - Were did the numbers of runs go in this app?
Love this app but where did the number of runs go? Miss it 🙁
Starlord009 - They Screwed Up Verticals
Why do we have vertical calculate as up and down for skiing now? It used to be accurate with reporting only downhill verticals, but now they calculate up and down. Super frustrating! Please fix this bug.
Jimmy three - Ski Tracks lite data disappeared
I just upgraded and all my “Lite” data disappeared. Not happy about that.
CornelG - very good app with 2 caveats
excellent app, very useful and pretty accurate, but:
1- as many other reviewers mentioned: easy to forget to stop, impossible to correct (give us either an auto-stop or the possibility to
delete a specific run)
2- last update removed the counter for Runs; please bring it back
Lulune 014 - Nombre de descentes
J’aime beaucoup cette application, mais pourriez-vous remettre le nombre de descentes? C’etait un gros plus,m
Y get it - Where have all the ‘runs’ gone
Love the app but the newest update removed the number of ‘runs’ from the dashboard and now shows ‘slope’ two times instead. Would be great if they could bring back the ‘runs’.
L-ll_ll`lGl2Y - Good for snow sport use but not enough for whole training purpose
I have been using this paid version app for years. Data is very accurate compare to other similar app. Option to choose activities is great. The downsides are it’s not able to connect to a dedicated heart rate monitor via bluetooth. And it doesn’t allow you to sync with Strava. I end up using a Garmin watch more or sometimes just using Strava on the phone instead. This allows me to see my different activities all together to priovide a better prospect for training. This app needs to step up with these options in order to stay in this game longer.
Garybia - Can not trim end
Currently can not trim the end of a track
Nekton73 - Great for X Country
Have been using this for years now, reliably and accurately tracks my ski routes, easy to use and share.
Rejifred - Téléchargement sur Apple Watch
Même si j’appui sur télécharger l’application Ski Track à partir de ma montre de mon IPhone je ne l’ai pas l’application sur ma Apple Watch
Kataleen - Needs two major fixes
Great app but it needs two important features:
1. Ability to delete certain runs in a session since some of my sessions now list my top speed at 130 km/h because I forgot to end the session till I got home
2. Ability to auto end (or pause) session when outside of a certain range of the skiing area or when the user is in a self designated area (parking lot for example)
Other than that, this app is awesome.
Minidudedaboss - Amazing!
Very good, pretty accurate, very intuitive interface. Only thing I’d add is a bit more data for the year summary (currently only ski distance, ski vertical and top speed) It’d be really nice to know the amount of runs for example. Otherwise, very good!
Chiroken - Will no longer sync???
I really like this app and have used it for 5-6 seasons. Recently when I go to the sync page now each ski session since day 1 over 5 yrs ago shows up in the page to be synced. And when I sync, they don’t actually sync. I typically sync every few days but now my entire history needs syncing and won’t.. I have version 18.104.22.168. I don’t want to lose
all of my ski history!!
Loiloup52 - Louise Poirier
Is there an auto pause?
Loumelanson - Photos
Comment on peux mettre des photos dans votre application après notre sortie. Il ne semble pas y avoir de fonction. Je suis avec un iPhone
Piper444 - Great app!
Amazing app! Great job, simple and easy to use!
The only feature I would include is an auto shut off of some sort so to stop recording as you’re driving away from the hill at the end of the day.
Vincilupus - An entire day with no data
I skied all day and made sure I started the app, the only data it recorded was my calories. Nothing about my ski, no speed, no distance.
Horas1123427 - Extraordinary App
Have been using this App for 3 years and it is a fantastic time keeper. It is great to store memories and progress doing the activity that we love in the outdoors.
Dogdayafternoon99 - Watch issues.
I have only used this watch for two days but so far it seems to use on Apple Watch you need cell near. I have a cell capable Apple Watch so would hope the app could transfer data through watch cell connection or store for when connected, Not so. When I lost cell connection on watch and cell phone did not record stats, only calories and time. My vert and runs did not record when out of cell range. I suppose I could run app on phone but whole idea was to have it work on Watch independently
山顶洞人 - Data from Apple Watch does not transfer to iPhone app
Even though it shows up in Activities. Disappointing for a paid app.
Hardy4382 - Great app! Apple Watch 6 update please :)
This app is really cool. I’ve been using in the Canadian Rockies for years. Pay for it. It’s pretty accurate and a lot of fun to check out while you’re shredding the gnar chasing the pow. Always on Altimeter will be a fun update to see your elevation from the side of the Z in 3D. Woot woot!
Hewowewo - Ski is like a ritual
For me and my family this app is amazing
Newuser74 - Great, but need the ability to delete runs that don’t record correctly
Incorrect run data skews the data and it can’t be deleted, only the entire track.
Busshoff - Busshoff’s
Excellent app, maybe you can and I just don’t know but would be nice to preload maps
Rodion Probos - Please add editing activity
I often forget to stop tracking after activities and the application gets wrong data while I commute home. It would be nice to have an ability to delete some period of statistics and sync the results with the Health app again.
Roman_canada - Unable to reset password
Unable to reset password from app (nothing is emailed despite confirmations)
Nor able to do this from web either.
KelownaSOB - Decent but no storage
Works well but can’t accumulate a season’s worth. Only five allowed. Needs improvement in this area.
Rrtjay - 5 years and running
I love this app. Great interface especially on the iwatch.
Esods - Have used since 2012
Changed to a new I phone and now doesn’t recognize my email for an account... how do I fix? I have the premium version.
Todd in Canada. - Since 2013
I’m not too sure I’ve been happier with an app for so long. SkiTracks had a couple bumps in the road but when approached the completely listened and addressed the issue. That was a long time ago, they have continually improved this app to almost perfection. 10/10
Craig in the mountains - Much better than resort apps
I’ve been using this app for 4 years and really appreciate its accuracy and reliability. I’m always impressed at its reliability especially to recognize all the resorts that I’ve skiied at, including most of the resorts in the British Columbia interior mountains.
I appreciate it even more this season (2019/2020), while skiing over 125,000 vertical feet at Whistler Blackcomb (on less than ideal conditions unfortunately), whereas the WB/Vail Resorts propriety “EpicMix” ski tracker isn’t working this season (it fails to record some lifts and even missed an entire day’s skiing even though it was “on”). Thank goodness I run SkiTracks as well to record my days.
SledGuide101 - Great basic app for tracking location.
Very accurate GPS system but comes with its troubles too.
Often times when you load the map then head out of service you’ll lose the map off screen. It will continue to track you and will have everything you’ve done up till that point(good if you need to follow your same track out) but it’s not so good to use as a way of exploring new areas. With the map disappearing for seemingly different reasons, it’s no longer usable.
However incredibly accurate when laying the track on the map.
It would also be awesome if you could drop pins to label certain features/landmarks but unfortunately it doesn’t have this feature.
MelissaElliot - Apple Watch App Does not work
I skied for 3 hours and it was tracking fine on my watch until the end of the day. Now looking at the app it says I only skied 8km and max speed of 7km/h. I have been using this app for years with no problem, until this ski season. It does not work anymore.
Yyyyyyyyyytty - Distance broke
The app was working fine and I recommended to friends. But latest revision 22.214.171.124 broke the distance measure. I skied 11.9km based on the profile and per km stats, but distance shied 17.3km! Originally it was showing 20+km. I did a cut and undo, then it is stuck at 17.3km. Please fix ASAP. I'll update the review once fixed.
Brookesvilla - Stops tracking
