There are many useful free apps for smartphones that can be used during a ski holiday in the Dolomites. We made a list of the most useful ones if you are skiing on the Dolomiti Superski slopes in South Tyrol:
1) Weather forecast
What’s the weather forecast for the next days? Why is Siri telling me not to go out without an umbrella (yes, trust us, it happens) and the weather channel shows sunshine?
If you want to play it safe then download the official weather app of the local weather office of the Bolzano province. This app shows you the forecasts for different areas in South Tyrol, the detailed mountain weather and the current values from weather stations placed on the territory.
2) Dolomiti Superski
Open ski lifts and slopes, 3D map of the skiing area, all the latest news… plus the Ski Performance check to have a full summary of the kilometers of slopes covered during your holiday. As soon you have your Dolomiti Superskipass in your hands type in the skipass code. The MUST HAVE app for your ski holiday.
3) Ski Mobility
An alternative to the classic Sellaronda? We have it: it starts from the Dolomites of Alta Badia, skiing over the Plan de Corones/Kronplatz to the Dolomites of Sexten and back. The ‘Ski Mobility’ app helps you with the necessary information about skibus and train transfers during this amazing ski trip.
How many hours have you been active (and how many in the huts), how many kilometers have you covered, what is the altitude gain, and the maximum speed reached downhill? Strava is not only an excellent application for all sport activities such as hiking, cycling and running, we use it also for alpine skiing.
A picture of a hot chocolate or a Bombardino at a mountain hut. A plate of dumplings or an apple strudel with vanilla sauce… and this, with a breathtaking mountain background. Have fun posting your pictures and don’t forget to use the #dolomitesski hashtag and tag @holimites in your pictures.
Last but not least…
We have a sixth app, which is not among the free apps. But if you want to know the name of the Dolomites peaks around you this app is a MUST-HAVE too: Peakfinder.
