Great app

This is definitely the best looking ski/snowboard tracking app. I love the social media aspect of this app, it really brings my friends and family together!

Although it's my favorite skiing app there are a few improvements. I'm not sure the max speed is as accurate as others. I don't have any proof at the moment, but I plan on testing this next time I go up to the mountains, and compare it to Ski Tracks.

Another simple and cool idea would be leaderboards amongst friends. I don't care too much about my overall standings as long as I am beating my friends :).

When it comes to the map for a particular run, it's pretty cool with the color coding, but a legand would be nice, is red or green fast?

This one might be a stretch, but I would also love for you to have a "king of the mountain" where each run has a best time and you could compete with friends. People could add KOM stretches on a mountain and it would keep track of the fastest people to ride that section of the mountain. Maybe you could do KOM for each run and then when looking back at your runs it would tag all the KOM stretches you hit while going down.

This app is so close to being great

There are two big issues with it. One, it doesn’t write “active energy” to the apple health app but it does write “workouts”. What this means is that you will close your green exercise ring several times over but the activity app will basically read your day of skiing as a brisk walk. You may not close your pink move ring depending on what your daily goal is. Other workout apps do this and it’s great. Snoww calculates it and you can see your active calories in the health app but it doesn’t write it and it doesn’t count toward closing your ring.
The second issue is that it starts randomly. I’ll start the app on my first ride up the mountain and frequently I already have a 23 hour session going. There isn’t a way to discard or cancel a session and so the quickest way is to kill the app on your watch and your phone without closing the workout session and then start a new session from your phone. It’s a pain.
Other than those two issues, the app is great.

Bug when upgrading phones (or iOS?)

I went from a iPhone 6S to a iPhone 12 Pro, and skied a few times with the app since I upgraded. I noticed it never uploaded any of my runs because everything in the app stated “no internet connection found” despite having Wifi and 4G/5G. There was no help site, FAQs, bug submissions, or anything this company could do to help me out. The app also has not been updated for almost a year.

My only solution to fix this was to delete the app and redownload, but unfortunately this solution loses your offline data that has not been uploaded (so I lost a few runs from uploading). This would be the downfall of an app like Strava, so I’m surprised an issue like this appears in snoww.

I’ll probably keep using it because it’s a free option to tracking runs and it works pretty well, but the lack of support for critical bugs where I lose data I tracked deserves 2 stars. Otherwise it’d be a solid 4
