Best apps for winter sports enthusiasts

Ski & Snow Report; SnowEdge; SnoC

Ski & Snow Report sends an alert to your phone whenever 3 or more inches of fresh powder fall on any of the “go-to mountains” specified in your preferences. This “easy to use” app from Zumobi also allows you to send snowfall numbers to your friends on Twitter or Facebook. (Free, iOS and Android)

SnowEdge provides skiers and snowboarders instant performance feedback. Keep the app running while your phone is in your pocket and it will measure everything from maximum speed to air time to turn acceleration. The app saps battery life, “but the data you can pull is worth it.” (Free, iOS)

SnoCru is “the Frankenstein of winter apps.” It provides a bit of everything—snow reports, social sharing, and routine run stats like maximum speed and distance traveled. Good as an all-purpose app. (Free, iOS and Android)
