Thank you to all the users of Ski Tracks for your support, tracks/photographs and the great feedback you have sent us.


Take your iPhone Skiing and Snowboarding this season with the most professional tracking application on the market. Just press the START button and put your phone in your pocket to record your day.

Unlike many other tracking applications Ski Tracks is designed to use less power and will last all day (1). Ski Tracks also includes a battery monitor - stopping tracking and audio if your battery level gets too low - this reduces the possibility of that end of day dead phone.

Unlike many other ski applications Ski Tracks does not require any data or phone signal for Tracking. So enjoy your skiing or riding without worrying about data costs. (See Note 2)

iPhone users can run Ski Tracks in background and while phone is locked. Continue to take and receive calls/text or run other applications while tracking.

Ski Tracks uses special algorithms designed for mountain users to accurately calculate your speed, slope angle and ski vertical.

Want to check your last run maximum speed or duration or even your last ascent then use the Run-by-Run analysis tool and Ski Tracks will break up your day into runs and lifts.

Why not share your Ski day in Facebook or how about emailing a file that will preview your entire day in 3D on Google Earth™.

Standard and Satellite maps are available for displaying your track, track runs, start, finish and photographs. Use the preview mode to playback your entire day.

Take photographs and they are automatically geo-tagged to your Track.


Note 1. iPhone 4 (12 hours). iPhone 4s/5/5c/5s (14 hours) - actual recording length dependant on battery condition, temperature, other background applications and phone usage.

Note 2. Ski Tracks does not need data or a phone signal to record your day, the location system on the iPhone may from time to time use data for location fixes, we have no control over this. THEREFORE WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND SETTING DATA ROAMING OFF IF YOU ARE USING YOUR PHONE ABROAD AND TURN OFF CELLULAR DATA IF YOU ARE ON A FIXED DATA PLAN.


As with all GPS receivers the quality of GPS signal can vary depending on the amount of visible sky, satellite positions, foliage, weather conditions etc. GPS will not reliably work indoors. For more information please checkout and download the User Guide from our web site.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Customer Reviews

  • I love this app!

    by KTMRider2

    But this app if you like tracking your ski day. Very much worth the money. Love being able to look back over the day and see photos Nd where they were actually taken.

  • Love the App, but drains battery too rapidly

    by Sozz2

    Hey guys, I just love this app. It gives detailed data on all of my skiing metrics. However, even though I make sure to always fully charge my battery all the way up until I get to the base of the mountain and close all of my other apps while skiing, this app always seems to drain my entire phone battery when skiing a full day. Hopefully you guys can figure out a way to conserve battery life while running this app.

  • Love the app

    by Amaziiinggggg

    The max speed tracking seems to be off. I had a recent day that said I went 70mph but in each individual track the highest speed I could find was mid 40s. I know I'm not going 70...

  • Pebble support needed

    by Colin Moulton

    When will ski tracks add pebble support?

  • Unbelievable App!

    by drewbydoo14

    I cannot believe how many features are packed into this app, especially for only $1. The interface is simple and easy to briefly check after each run, but there is so much more detail to explore after the day is over. I love how it recognizes each run, and can display average and maximum speed, vertical displacement, and more. The ability to replay your entire day is amazing, and is good for reminiscing and remembering with buddies. The drain on the battery is acceptable: I lasted a whole day today from 10-4:30 minus a break for lunch with 30% remaining. I had to have cellular data on however, which may have drained my battery more. This is different from what other reviewers said. Other than this small issue, I am completely satisfied and will be using this app on all of my future ski trips.

  • Great App with Even Better Support

    by Unimpressed34

    I've been using this app for 3+ years now and it has been a great addition to each boarding trip. It's a great way to track all sorts of critical metrics and try to top them the next time out. In addition their customer support has been awesome when resolving any concerns!!!

  • Simply amazing!

    by SendingOutAnSOS

    Worth every cent, making ski trips even more exciting!

  • Awesome App

    by NjHockeyguy

    One of the most useful apps I have ever used. Just returned from Killington and I still love replaying my runs and analyzing my stats. Can't wait for my next ski trip to see if I can go even faster!

  • Amazing app

    by Mazenalawar

    Amazing app that is well worth it for any skier. Incredibly accurate and informative. Absolutely loving it.

  • Great app with few quirks

    by Dsrogers123

    This app is great with a few quirks. I use this app this weekend while skiing at Killington resort. One quark I noticed was that the max velocity on my homepage did not match the max velocity on the run tab, and it was more than just rounding error. Another interesting thing I noticed was the graph showing the velocity of the entire day only showed one data point per run which at first I thought was the max velocity for run but it did not match. Another kind of annoying quark was that some runs showed long flat lines at the end of their velocity graphs because I was waiting in line. The app should know the run was over. Some things I would like to see added in the future our names of trails and skilifts as well as hang time data. Other than those suggestions this app was fantastic and displayed some very cool data at the end of the day.

  • Just awesome!

    by NHSwimCoach

    Great app

  • Love it

    by skittles987

    I've found this app to be very accurate. I've never gotten a weird speed spike. The only down side I've seen was that it took a couple min to calibrate before speeds became accurate but that was a few updates ago. With this app and music playing my battery drops less than 20% by lunch. I use it every time I go snowboarding.

  • Love the app

    by Amaziiinggggg

    Have you considered changing the color of the lines that show your track base on speed? It'd be cool to see where you were going fastest.

  • Just Awesome

    by manofmoe

    Completely worth the money. Never have I used an app so accurate and so analytic. Definitely recommend!

  • Fun but could be better

    by Mr. Miggs

    Stores a lot of data but lacks in analysis. Would like to have total downhill ski time - this could be done by summing up all the downhill time over a user-selected min speed. Could use the same logic to get an accurate per run average speed. I hope the developers do some more work on this app with a lot of potential but rather disappointing features with V1.3.2.

  • LG Skier

    by ADK46er2248

    Love this app - makes skiing even more fun! I love that I can continually track the whole season.

  • Best

    by 86smopuiM

    Best app for tracking your mountain stats. Been using it for years. Totally worth $.99

  • Great

    by Ryanisawesome1

    Does everything that I want it to do. It works everytime I turn it on

  • run bug

    by operationquip

    I love love love this app I would just like to second the run reset counter bug pausing causes the run counter to reset and it's really annoying please fix this !

  • Blows me away!

    by Country girl 907

    This app is amazing! I no longer need my $200 GPS! It tracks where you go within inches, it tells you your speeds accurately, as well as your altitude climbs and descents. I absolutely love that you don't need Internet, wifi or anything else but just a battery on your device to run the program and it doesn't eat up the battery you have. Best app I've purchased!!!

  • Likable but has issues

    by -SSE-

    It says my max speed at Vail was 106.9 mph the other day. I don't think so. Makes me doubt the total vertical and distance. Please fix this.

  • Likable but has issues

    by -SSE-

    It says my max speed at Vail was 106.9 mph today. I don't think so. Makes me doubt the total vertical and distance. Please fix this.

  • Great App

    by Anon23212

    Never ever review anything but this app is great for an avid skier like myself. It even logs my runs in the areas that have no signal at all. Great overall product.

  • The best app for ski lovers

    by Arashmx

    The best app for ski lovers

  • Doesn't always work

    by Big B229

    The app is nice and fairly easy to use but it doesn't always count my runs, which is the most important piece of information to me.

  • Amazingly Accurate

    by ndavid1428

    As one who commonly skis Beaver Creek which uses Epicmix, a service by Vail Resorts that scans you at every lift and calculates your vertical feet, I was looking to go a step beyond simply vertical feet and find many more statistics. This app did a perfect job doing that. Not only does this give me Vertical Feet, but I am many statistics such as Max and Average Speed, Distance skied, Max and Min altitudes, angles, number of runs, including a run by run analysis, and much more. Additionally the difference between the Ski Tracks Vertical Feet, and the Epic Mix vertical feet was 7 vertical feet FOR THE ENITRE DAY, which is pretty impressive considering I skied nearly 35,000 feet. This data is presented in a very clean and convent way that is easy to understand and view. I used this app from about 9am to 3:30pm with a 1 hour break where I paused the app for lunch and the battery drain was not significant, being about at 60% at 3:30pm. I would recommend this app to anyone who enjoys skiing and would like to get statistics about their skiing!

  • Love it!!!

    by kalvinkazeemmmiiii

    Until a week ago my friend showed me this app and I was able to see exactly how fast I go so I know what to achieve next time! Awesome app!

  • Good app missing one big feature

    by Jal2678

    This app works well, does not drain the battery (if you turn off wifi, cell data, and Bluetooth ) and has a good display with good stats. The one thing it lacks is information about the resorts you are skiing at. So while it displays on a google satellite image your runs, it does not tell you the names of the runs or the lifts that you took. They should have the resort maps in the database so you can see your tracks superimposed on the ski resort map instead of a google satellite image.

  • Excellent ski app

    by ddddddannnnnnnn

    So many great features, doesn't kill the battery, and tracks your runs in several very cool ways.

  • Superb!

    by The JoBoo

    I have had this app for several seasons and have not had one issue. The battery drain is minimal and the tracking very accurate. I is a blast to review the data at the end of the day with friends and family. I always get excited at the beginning of ski season to review the past few years if runs to pump me up for the new ones. Highly recommend!!

  • Amazing app

    by Trenthack

    This app is great. I've used it several times so far this season. (I downloaded it back in June). Everything I need is on this one app. Speed altitude location music etc... The slope doesn't work unless the phone is strait up and down so I just don't pay attention to that (and that is why I gave it a 4 stars instead of 5). My favorite part is that it tracks you location so you can see where you went on the mountain. And you can use this app for anything.

  • Fun and Easy to Use

    by Marinasnow

    Does just what it says. One click start, one click to stop and it does the rest. Great App.

  • Speed calculation way off

    by Kevinbw

    This app clocked me at 61mph down the ski hill. I tested its accuracy by having it clock my car while I was driving 55mph. It claimed I was driving 100mph. The speed clocking seems to be so inaccurate that it is basically meaningless.

  • fix the runs feature

    by fix the runs feature

    It’s good except when you pause the app it resets the run counter to zero…fix this bug please. Today i had 10 runs…it showed 3 because we took a break after the 7th run. I would give it 4 stars but this blatant bug is pretty lame, it might be minor to the developer but it just makes me question the accuracy and precision of the app overall.

  • Best Ski/Boarding App in the AppStore

    by CzJLee

    At first I was weary on how this app works. I still do not know specifically works, but I can tell you that it works wonders. It gives you a breakdown of each lift and gives you more than you can ask for. I have used this for a whole day of skiing with bad signal and it didn't even consume half my battery. Quite an amazing app.

  • Fantastic App

    by MasonASmith

    I was pleasantly surprised by the functionality and accuracy of this application. What this app claims it does is absolutely true, and is certainly a fantastic buy. Lots of fun, very accurate, and battery efficient. Great job, developers. I will certainly buy your other apps if the need arises.

  • Nice app

    by scarficusrex

    Very nice app, and thoughtfully built. I was worried having the GPS active would hammer the battery too hard, but it’s able to at least make it through a few hours of continuous use. You’ll probably want an external battery if you want to go all day long, but that’s not the app’s fault.

  • Fun app

    by Mike McClure

    Really fun app if you have ever wondered how fast you really ski. A few enhancement suggestions for future versions: 1). Allow you to see the top speed of your most recent ski run. If you set a world speed record on your first run if the day, it's difficult to see your speed on subsequent ski runs. The graph has it, but it's hard to see the speed exactly. 2). Ability to delete runs for those of us who forget to stop the app before getting in the car and driving away. My current top speed is 83 mph. Well, not really. 3). Find a way to get rid of chair lift time in the calculations so that he distance calculated is 100 percent ski distance. Probably not as easy as it sounds given that some chair lifts are high speed lifts and come close to he speed of some slower skiers.

  • Great way to show off your records

    by guard of shadows

    An essential app for skiers

  • Some good some bad

    by EpicCCTX

    I used it today and got 61.2 early on then got 66.6 then 70.8mph. The end of the day tried to save and it only saved the 61.2.

  • Outstanding Ski Tracking App

    by SMB User

    I tried using the Park City Mountain Resort app for tracking and my phone locked up. Then I tried Ski Tracks and it did a fantastic job. It preserved battery and gathered stats automatically in the background. Fantastic! Only feature I'd like added would be when you tap a run number on the map, it could highlight that run so you can remember which one it was (they begin to overlap quite a bit on the map). Great app!

  • Great one for Skiing

    by Ellisstate

    Fantastic app, especially if you like competing against yourself. Way for than the Epic tracking. Although, I forgot to turn it off at the end of the day and got into my car and drove 50mi. Is there a way to delete just that decent? That way I could keep the rest of he track and not fudge up my season stats

  • Must have for skiers

    by Katie7251

    Such a legit app- get it

  • Amazing

    by JoeA1974

    This is a must have app

  • Pretty cool

    by jb utah

    Bought it yesterday, used it today. Everything worked as per the description. I used it for about 3.5 hours and it used less than 20% of my iPhone 4S battery.

  • Great App for Tracking Ski Days or Seasons

    by Bruce McLeod

    This is the third season I've used Ski Tracks and I really enjoy it. At the end of the day you can see how many runs, vertical feet, or miles you've skied - other stats too. As the season progresses you can see your running stats, as well as totals at the season's end. The developer is very responsive to issue and making the app more accurate. (and despite the review below the app has no problem with iOS 7)

  • Great app

    by Dakels

    Live this app. Has a really good GPS and good information. Not sure how accurate it is but it works pretty well. I really eats up the battery but that's not the apps fault but the GPS. Wish it better understood when you get on the lift like it stops tracking when you are below 5mph or something.

  • Doesn't work

    by BOss snowboarder

    Crashes instantly upon opening on ios7. Do not buy!

  • Fun App

    by KTM Johnny

    Love watching my progress all day. Makes Skiing more fun. Great job!

  • Please fix

    by butlersteelie

    I used this all last year and LOVED it. This app rocks! But I tried to use it opening weekend and the altitude and speed is broken on the latest IOS. Please update this.

  • Stopped working this year

    by Skip e damann

    This app worked great last year but this year it doesn't record at all on my 4S with iOS 7. Tried rebooting the phone and restarting the app to no avail. Reported problem, never heard back from the developers.

  • IPhone 5s iOS 7 doesn't work... Poor support!

    by Twillie105

    This app worked great last year on my iPhone 4S but since if got the 5s and upgraded to the most recent operating system it doesn't work. It doesn't track any speed or distance. All settings are correct and the problem reported with no response after 2 weeks - very disappointed!

  • Think snow!

    by BelNium

    Used it all last season (12-13) and just recorded the first day of 13-14. I enjoy all the different features of this app!

  • Nit pick

    by Mflo999

    Nice app but am I the only one who is irritated that the designers used the word 'altitude' when they meant 'elevation?'


    by Markus G

    Ever since iOS 7 - can't ever open the app. Let's get it together ski tracks!

  • If you like skiing get this app

    by Komodo0000000000

    It's the best app out there by far for recording your skiing it's awesome

  • goes from 10 runs to 1 run

    by Jeffafa

    does go past 10 runs starts back over at 1 please fix!

  • Best Out There

    by dirkoneill

    Hands down the best ski tracking app. Best dollar you will ever spend.

  • Great App. Works very well

    by Joe Sunde

    Ski Tracks is a great way to see where you ski and how far and fast you go and to show your friends that you really did go that fast.

  • Crash

    by Tbone3652

    It still crashes for me on iOS 7.

  • Well worth it

    by A 2.0 Convert

    Extremely satisfied. Had concerns about battery life on my 4s, but had no problems at all. Be sure to look at the included help for tips on optimizing battery life. I didn't use the pocket sleep feature btw. I feel like the authors are selling themselves short at $.99. This is easily worth $9.99. Still one of the best apps I've ever purchased!

  • Great Easy Informative

    by Former Nurd

    Used this several days in the Midwest an at Winter Park CO. Nice app, easy to use and operate, easy on your battery! Fun to review your runs and stats at days end. Fantastic interface with Google to upload data and actually see your runs and analyze them! Looking forward to winter!!!

  • The best, close to perfect

    by Ztripz

    I use this app all my route mapping- skiing, biking, running, hiking- because the GPS works well, it doesn't eat my battery, and I like the play route, altitude, and speed features. One feature I'd like to see is one that shows how far I've gone at any time during the mapped route. Also, the altitude reading tends to wander (but I've read that that is a problem inherent to smartphone gps). Keep up the great work!

  • Excellent

    by iGuy1984

    Really impressed with the amount of information this app gathers. Never expected graphs of altitude and speed over time. Magically breaks each run out to see by itself. I am very impressed.

  • Love this app., please add cycling

    by Blackilt

    I love this app and use it for skiing and cycling on road and trail. Please add a cycling option under Activities. Maybe someday specific code for cycling. Also, can you make it more accurate for car use? Thanks again!

  • Super fun app

    by Aj O

    Love everything about it except you cannot edit tracks. For instance today I forgot to turn it off when I was done and would love to delete the car drive homes data. If this feature can be made that'd be amazing.

  • Love it but vertical is inaccurate

    by Ski freak pdx

    Have had the app for 3 seasons. Prior versions seemed more accurate. Vertical is off by hundreds of feet each run. It would be great if app could use location to identify resort and lift and calibrate altitude better.

  • Dangerous app

    by Str8 line

    I don't think you should get this app if you are a speed junkie. My first goal was 70mph then 80 mph now it is 85 as I hit 82. Scary stuff.

  • Cool app but lacking a couple feature

    by christina2025

    I like this app a lot. Seems to be pretty accurate. I love tracking my day. So far hasn't drained my battery. Turn the brightness down on your phone and maybe turn on the 3G and you'll be fine. I wish these was a way to delete "mistake" runs. Like when I forget to shut it off in the car and end up with a couple runs at 75 MPH. It messes up the averages. Thanks.

  • Great app

    by Fluffy tummy

    Worked great. Hit over 70mph three runs and ten others in the high 60's. fun to see where your runs were and compare them as we'll.

  • Nice app

    by MrPoman

    Used for the last day of a 3 day Mammoth trip and it worked great. Have to say was very skeptical of the battery claims. Used maybe a little more battery than just running the 4s without the app. After using this app I am no longer going to bring my hand held GPS while skiing.

  • Best ski tracking app

    by TRON-tron

    Intuitively review speed, vertical distance skied, elevation, and your number of runs. Cool to break down your runs to see which ones were high speed!!! Try to break 60mph!
