Seeing as most of us don’t step outside without our smartphones, we thought it might be good to share our favourite ski apps. Here at New Generation Ski School we think they’ll  certainly make your ski holiday easier.

Free on IOS and Android

There are lots of apps on iPhones that let you find out the latest snow report and weather. We quite like this one. The app allows you to get the latest snow updates, reports from people on the ground in the resort you are travelling to and you are also able view ski resort webcams. It also comes with some pretty handy resort information such as which lifts are open, making it a bit of a ski holiday survival guide.

We have all stopped at the top of a lift and had a good chat about which huge peak or mountain range we are gazing at. Well the debates are off, as this app works like a magic viewfinder for Alpine mountain ranges. Hold it up in front of you and point it as the peak you want to know the name of, and hey presto, you get a drawing of the range with named areas.
