Inside every rider lies an inner geek, particularly when it comes to tracking your progress on the mountain. There are some rad apps out there for iPhone and Android users – from altitude and speed GPRS trackers to sequence shot creators for your phone’s camera and a GoPro remote. If only your twelve-year-old, Nintendo 64 playing self could see you now…

We’ve picked out a couple of handy apps to enhance your riding experience – or at least provide a little distraction while you’re sat on the lift.

N.B. The problem with apps is how much it drains your battery, particularly ones that tap into your GPRS. We’re big fans of the Anker – it’s a mobile battery pack that actually does what it says on the tin. The latest version supposedly packs in up to 8 charges on an iPhone or Samsung Galaxy. We’ve tried out the early Astro3E and it’s pretty damn good.

Are there any more snow apps you think we’ve missed? List them in the comments below!
