Supported Devices. Our apps are designed for iPhones and iPads running iOS 5 and higher, and for Android phones and tablets running Android 2.2 and higher. When an app runs on an iPad or an Android tablet, it takes full advantage of the larger screen and other special capabilities of these devices.
All-Season App. For resorts that have summer seasons, our apps provide a summer mode in addition to the standard winter mode. Summer and winter modes can offer different capabiliites and maps. The user can switch instantly between modes.
Push Notifications. All our apps support push notifications, enabling the resort to promote events and alert users to breaking news.
Live Trail Maps
For each season (summer or winter) the app provides up to four high resolution, fully zoomable and scrollable trail maps, each with GPS tracking capabilities. Use for downhill and cross-country in the winter, and for hiking and biking in the summer.
The app can show live status (open/closed, groomed, etc.) of each trail on the map.
Using GPS, users can locate themselves on the resort's trail maps (not hard-to-use GPS maps). Courtesy of Glympse, users can share their locations with friends, and can see their friends' and family's shared locations on the trail map.
Users can track downhill or X-C runs (winter) or hiking or biking (summer), and accumulate daily and season statistics (vertical, distance, speed, etc). Users can display and replay runs on the trail map, and can display them in Google Earth, email them, print them (ipHone and iPad), or post images of them to Facebook. The app retains tracking information from season to season.
iPhone and iPad users can store their tracking logs in iCloud, enabling them to share and view their tracks among multiple devices.
iPhone or iPad users can post performance statistics to Leaderboards in Apple's Game Center.
Up-to-the-Minute Information about Lifts, Trails, Conditions, Events, Cams
The app collects information directly from the resort to show:
• Live trail status: which runs are open and which closed, which are groomed, which have snowmaking.
• Live lift status (including hours of operation).
• Snow report and statistics, current weather, weather forecast, daily news.
• Web cam images.
• Events calendar.
ECommerce and Deals/Promotions
Provide acccess to your e-store and special deals and promotions.
A contacts directory provides phone numbers (including the ability to place a call) email and web addresses of services resturants, retailers, etc., and can show users their locations on the resort or village map.
For restuarants, the contacts directory supports online reservations and can display menus.
Winter and summer seasons can use separate contacts directories.
Apps support up to four base or village maps for each season. These maps, which are fully zoomable and scrollable, can be linked to the contacts directory, so that a tap on a map locatoin can take a user to contact information, and a tap on a contact can show the user a location on the map.
Apps provide built-in support for connection to Facebook. Apps display the resort's pages from Twitter, Instagram and other social media.
Display videos (e.g., a video snow report) and other special information (e.g., avalanche reports).
For summer, provide golf course maps, and hole maps.
Send printed postcards to family and friends.
We can customize apps to meet the special needs of individual resorts.
