When new technologies are invite to winter sports – francetv info

Web sites

In recent years, all ski resorts have their website.
It includes practical information such as the activities offered by the resort, rates and Plans tracks. But above all, one can follow the snow conditions of each station and the list of open trails.
Some stations have even installed webcams allow you to better enjoy the weather. This is the case of Les Rousses for example.

mobile applications

All websites do not work on our mobile phones that is why many resorts offer their mobile app. The Métabief station for example, offers an application that summarizes the key information you might need on site as weather, piste map, but also direct access to online packages.

Some applications you track your achievements on the slopes memorizing your trips, your altitude, speed and distance you have traveled.
This is the case of Ski Tracks that costs less than a euro and works without 3G.
If you ski outside, remember to turn off the connection to your mobile data

online packages

Some stations you offer to purchase your package by internet to avoid the queues at the checkout. You queue the first time to buy your card and you then reload the Internet. This allows you to ski on your arrival to the slopes.

The connected gadgets

A French manufacturer has just released a cap to listen to music. It integrates Bluetooth headphones. And you do not have to ski to use. Allow 30 €.
