Update 4th April 2021
As the northern hemisphere skiing season is slowly drawing to a close we would like to thank our amazing testers, return users and new customers who have been so incredibly supportive of Ski Tracks this season.
Some of the support emails have been incredibly inspiring and have meant a lot to the team.
Like so many other industries Covid19 restrictions have placed enormous pressures on everyone and especially for the Ski industry that relies heavily on both international travel and hospitality.
With much of Europe completely shutdown and the North American and Asian resorts under strict restrictions the 2021 ski season has not quite gone to plan.
For those who were able to get to the mountains we are pleased that you were able to support the Ski industry and we hope you had some great skiing conditions.
We are preparing for some exciting updates for the Southern Hemisphere winter and we will be announcing some additions to our product line up in over the next few months.
In the meantime I would like to give a big thank you again to all our customers, testers and everyone who have help us.

SportsKit is a new technology developed by Core Coders to allow advanced sports algorithms to be developed efficiently. In addition SportsKit also provides services such as persistent storage, sensor management and built in processing units.
One of the big challenges of developing on small devices is that developers are writing and testing software on hardware and software environments.
Other cross platform technologies do not offer specific sports related paradigms, sensor handling or can run on watches or small wearables.
SportsKit is different and has been specifically designed to run on Watches and Mobile Devices.
You will soon see SportsKit running in all our products including Android, iOS, WearOS, WatchOS and Tizen.
This technology will totally change the accuracy and performance of our products so look out for the “Powered by SportsKit”
Powered by SportsKit

We get asked a lot for Ski Tracks statistics so we thought we would share some of the main numbers with you. Before we go through the statistics we would like to thank all our customers – we could have not done it without you.
In the past 5 years we have had a total downloads of Ski Tracks in the region of 2.4 million downloads. Ski Tracks is regularly top in its category across most countries that have Winter Sports. In the height of the season it is regularly in the top 10 overall app in the US, Canada, UK and much of Europe.
This figure has increased every year and now has nearly 1.2 million unique users starting Ski Tracks every year.
Mid season we generally have between 300,000 – 350,000 unique users starting Ski Tracks making it the most used Ski application in the world.
Mid season we generally have between 40,000 – 45,000 unique users starting Ski Tracks every morning as they go and up the mountain.
Our Cloud Backup
Our online cloud system has only been operational for less than a year and in that time we have recorded.
12+ Million miles of Skiing, with 5.6 Billion Vertical Feet, with nearly 1 million Ski Days.
This season we are aiming at least doubling these numbers. We will give a live update on the site as soon as the 2017 Ski Season starts.
