SMART RECORDING
Select your activity, and Slopes will figure out everything in the background (even what resort you're at, assuming you have cell reception). You can choose from ski, snowboard, monoski, sitski, telemark, and more. Slopes will automatically detect uphill, lifts, and runs for you all day long.

FIND YOUR FRIENDS ON THE MOUNTAIN
With live location on the recording screen, you can easily find each other! Location sharing is privacy-focused; you can always turn it on and off.

Navigate resorts with ease in 2D or 3D. See which run you or your friends are on and where to go next. Available for over 450 resorts in the US, Canada, the European Alps, Australia, New Zealand, Japan.

**New: SEARCH ON MAPS
Find any trail, lift, the bathroom, and more. Premium: check difficulty and the elevation profile for a run or the average time up for a lift.
Free Mode: On many North American resorts, we now show on-mountain facilities such as bathrooms, food, and, most importantly, ski patrol locations.

**New: TRIP PLANNING & CONDITIONS
Plan upcoming trips and invite your friends to them to share in the hype. Trips let you keep tabs on resort conditions, who's coming or not, and who else was invited, all in one central place. Before you head up the mountain, check what other riders say about a resort's snow quality. While on the mountain, location sharing will automatically work with everyone on the trip - even the participants not on your friend list in Slopes.

========================

Note: GPS is required, so Slopes will not work indoors. iPads and iPods will not be able to record with Slopes. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Factors like temperature, battery health, and other apps running in the background will affect battery performance.

What’s New

Version 2024.5

- Added a battery safety net feature on Watch. If you hit 3% or less battery while recording Slopes will stop recording and try to send the data to your iPhone before your battery fully dies. If you start recording on Watch in low power mode (10% battery or less) Slopes will disable this safety net and trust you know what you're doing.
- When starting recording on your Watch via iPhone, Slopes will now warn you if your Watch battery is less than 50% and give you the option to start on your iPhone instead.
- Improved our "resort grouping", which helps us track resorts that are connected, to allow us to exclude certain resorts from the automatic renaming that came along with being in a group. Example: Alpine Meadows was being shown as "Palisades." Your recordings will retroactively fix themselves when you update.
- If your Watch or iPhone battery dies mid-recording, and you don't charge your device + re-launch Slopes until the next morning, you'll now have the option to recover + save the unfinished recording from the previous day.
- If your Watch battery dies and you start a new recording a few days later without recovering + saving that previous recording, when reaching out to customer support we can now grab those unfinished GPS logs from your Watch.
- Fixed the memories widget not updating after a trip is over.
- Fixed (hopefully, because TiMeZoNeS) upcoming trips sometimes showing as off by one day for the start or end.
- Fixed (hopefully, because TiMeZoNeS) the memories widget and logbook showing "0 days" for a trip.
- Fixed the order of trip destinations not following the set itinerary dates.
- Fixed runs and lifts not showing up on iPad when replaying on the timeline.

Undisputed Best Mountain App

I started using this app in 2018. I can’t compare it to other mountain apps, but I still wouldn’t switch regardless. It works perfectly with your watch or phone. The best way to review this is to tell you how it works on a typical snow day. 1. I arrive at the lift and open the “Slopes” app on my Apple Watch 2. It automatically knows what mountain you are on, so you just select your activity: —— Downhill: snowboard / skis / telemark skis / monoski /sitski / snowbike / other. —— Backcountry: skis / snowboard / splitboard / other —— Other Winter Sports 3. The app will start tracking your session, and you can put your phone away or cover your watch in your sleeve for the rest of your day. Optional Lunch: If you want to take lunch, open the app on your phone/watch and hit the pause button for a specified time or manually resume it. 4. At the end of the day, you tap the checkered flag, and it will load all your stats for the day. Stats: - # of Runs - Total Vertical - Total Time - Total Distance - Average Speed - Top Speed - Tallest Run - Peak Altitude - Longest Run Extra: if you connect your watch, it tracks your health. - Average BPM on runs - Max BPM - KCAL burned 5. Go home after your trip and open the app to see All Lifetime Stats. You will see the best scores for each category out of all your days on the mountain. BEST APP FOR THE MOUNTAIN

Works on my iPhone 6 again!

At the start of the ski season, I tried to use Slopes, but iOS had offloaded it since I hadn’t used it during the off-season. I couldn’t get it to download again and after several tries, finally discovered that it now only works on iOS 13 and up. The developer claims you can keep using the old version, but if you have to reinstall, you can’t get the old one back. Now switching to a competitor that still supports iOS 12. As a developer myself, it’s generally a good idea to support at least the previous iOS version.

Update: After the developer contacted me, I was able to reinstall an older version of the app. Apple did not make this easy to find. I added two more stars due to the developer’s prompt response. However, I would still like to see support for at least one iOS version back for new updates. Most apps I checked still support back to iOS 10.

Update 2: The developer supports iOS 12 again! Greatly appreciated and definitely noticed performance improvements and less battery drain. Thanks again for making this change!

Developer Response ,

Hey Starkiller, you can totally still use it with the 6 (since you previously downloaded it)! Apple just doesn't make that 100% clear how. In the App Store go to the Updates tab, and you'll see the "Purchased" option at the top. Hit that and find Slopes in the list. Apple lets you download older versions of apps as long as the developer approves it. I made sure to keep a version around for people on 12. I've got ya covered.

Update: I went ahead and put in a lot of work to retrofit iOS 12 support into Slopes, meeting your request to support one version older of iOS. Hope you enjoy all the new goodies!

Not only unreliable, but disappointing

I was so excited to start using this app, but from day one have had problems. The primary issue is that you can get through an entire day of runs, hitting speeds you wanted recorded, making tracks you wanted to review, understanding the vertical feet that you dropped, etc. This app is not only unreliable, which unto itself you might simply say “oh well, not a great app“, but this app actually is disappointing because after an exciting day on the slopes you sit down, open your pocket, take out the app and take a look at it - and it simply says “no GPS data recorded”. After the first time this happened I read the troubleshooting guide and it said that you needed to make sure you had a reliable connection. Next time I confirmed that I did (my other apps all recorded). Next time GPS data didn’t record I was told it was likely do to keeping the app in an outside pocket where the phone got cold - keep it in an inside pocket to ensure warmth and then it will record your GPS location - so I did. It still did not work. Today I skied at Breck in 38° sunny weather and finished the day, looked at the device, and it said “no GPS data recorded“. I would be OK if an app simply didn’t work, but when you’re so excited to see how you ripped down the mountain side, and this app, let you down, makes you realize that you need to start looking for other apps. I would not waste my time with this app.

Developer Response ,

Hey Jeffrey, I'm really sad to read this review. I know how disappointing it would have been to find that nothing had been recorded at the end of a great day. It sounds like you did all the right things to improve GPS accuracy and it should have worked, unless there's some kind of permissions issue. It's not clear if you've been in touch with customer support already, but either way, if you'd like to give us another chance please send us a message from within the app via the Account tab -> Help & Support for the attention of Emma. This will send us some debug logs that show us what's going wrong so we can get it working for you. It's also possible that that recording was in fact backed up and can be recovered too.
