The winter sports season has begun and brings a wave of new apps for each phase of your stay. Prepare your body in advance or get some information on your ski station, compare your performance with your friends on the ski slopes or find activities after your effort. We have selected the best apps to help you to make the most of your holiday!
The must-have app to not forget anything before leaving! You can create as much lists as you want: for your family, your equipment, the last shopping to do etc. Or you can also select one of the recommended lists of objects or tasks in order to go faster! The lists can then be edited on Word, Excel or Google Docs and can be shared by e-mail.
The app lists over 2000 stations worldwide and skiers can share their opinions. THE Trip advisor for the ski stations. You can locate the nearest station and check the snow cover via the webcams on the slopes. All the information you can need are available (ski pass price, prices of the equipment rental…).
To be ready on the slopes, prepare and train your body before leaving! The app provides some physical preparation’s tutorials for the muscles that will be stimulated on the slopes (thighs, lower back, quadriceps, hamstring…). A coach can prepare a training program for you, explain to you the right moves or how to properly place you body.
The application that awakes you according to the snow condition of your ski resort. You will never miss THE ski session of the year again! Thanks to a sensor plugged into an electronic system that is autonomous in energy and connectivity, it measures in real time the snow depth. Stay informed about the status of your favourite station.

On the slopes…
The official app of your station
This is the first reflex to have! More and more stations are launching their own app where you can find all the information you need. Localisation system, Ski slopes maps, weather, webcam, data are updated regularly. Plus: activities and the calendar of the station’s events are listed!
The most accurate application to know everything about your destination, from the weather to the snow cover, the activities in the station, etc. Available data are updated daily and are provided by the member of the National Association of mountain resort’s Mayor. You can also find the slopes’ plans, the local webcams as well as photos posted by vacationers. The application also keeps you informed of the good deals: discounts in many shops or also book your ski passes without checking out!
The application is also available in its own version for each station (more than 70 stations). Here is a sample for the resorts of Tignes, Val Thorens, Les 2 Alpes, Serre Chevalier, Megève and Val d’Isère.
This app allows you to locate pharmacies and hospitals around you and also access to all emergency numbers (SAMU, SOS doctors, Poison Control Center…). You can also fill up a health form to indicate to the rescuers your blood group, your current treatments and your allergies.

The perfect application to recognize all the summits around you. To know the name of a mountain, you just need to point your Smartphone toward it.
