Technology in ski preparation
Technology also comes to the fore thanks to a series of useful ski apps for Android and iOS, free or for a fee, available on your device at any time, which - as part of the physical preparation of the ski, which increasingly winks at the digital universe - offer skiers a very rich menu: types of exercises to ski with a focus on the areas of the body to train, real timers for any exercise to be done and training cycles designed specifically to meet different needs. Is that all? Not really. The best apps for snow are characterised by additional features. So, what’s the best way to prepare for the season on the ski slopes, thinking about everything in between training and hi-tech?
The snow offers the opportunity to practice various activities and sports (skiing above all) that allow fans to move and relax the mind, perhaps escaping even for a weekend from everyday work and various commitments. So why not use your smartphone in anticipation of your skiing holidays? Skiing starts before you arrive on the slopes. It is enough, in fact, to have a smartphone or a tablet and connect to the webcams not only to find out about the weather forecast (the snow report of the ski resorts), but also to know every single information related to the slopes (classified by difficulty) - exploring in advance both the curves and the slopes - the lifts, the opening of the shelters. And again, find out online to book ski passes, get discounts on ski tickets or equipment rental. Geolocalising, it can be useful to download and view 3D maps of the ski areas.
The fascination of snow technology also passes through the wrist, thanks to the comfort and functionality of wearable devices, such as smartwatches, able to calculate the slope of the slopes or calories burned during sports directly on the application - simple and intuitive - the clock that tracks the workouts. Thanks to these devices it is possible to monitor the maximum speed, the vertical, the distance, as well as the total time of ascent and travel. There is also the technological support offered by these applications, characterised by an interface with large keys, linear graphics that are readable - especially with the glare of the sun, which are able to operate offline, therefore in the absence of a connection to the network.
