The weather has definitely cooled, making this a great time to hit the slopes. Skiing is a favorite pastime for many Americans, and one that requires significant planning and research in addition to skill. To help consumers prepare, travel protection brand Protect Your Bubble shares a list of top ski apps (Source:

iPhone Gear Guide – It all begins with the gear. But, with so many options it can be hard to know what's needed. This app helps consumers choose the best ski and snowboard equipment. Users can review the various options through the app's log of detailed information on snowboards, skis, ski boots, snowboard boots, and snowboard bindings. To make things even easier, the app allows users to filter their search based on gender, sport, skill and terrain, and then compare their favorite selections.

SkiTips – Proper “know-how” is needed before hitting the slopes this season. Whether the user is a novice or someone in need of a refresher, SkiTips offers ski instruction right from the smartphone. Users can take their skiing tutorial with them onto the slopes. SkiTips1 contains lessons that provide instruction on skiing fundamentals. Next, SkiTips2 contains lessons that coach on advanced techniques.

Ski and Snow Report – Now that the basic ski knowledge is covered, how will consumers know where to ski? The Ski and Snow Report app locates nearby ski spots via GPS and highlights the ski areas with the most snowfall. The app also provides access to live ski-area webcams and shares weather forecasts by ski area.

GPS Kit 6.0 for iPhone – Finally, skiers know that bragging rights are a must and the GPS Kit 6.0 can provide just that. This recently upgraded app provides users with ski/snowboard specific stats including number of runs, vertical, slope and more. Users can export the stats to share with friends and family and even load into Google Earth. This will create an animated fly-through of ski /snowboard tracks.
