Android Bike Tracks
We are actively planing to create Bike Tracks for Android. This will be our first fully “Powered by SportsKit” mobile application. We will post more information when we have more news.
System Status: OK
Behind every great application now sits an increasingly complex set of server technologies and at Core Coders we are no different. Last season we moved to a new platform and service provider. Over the past month we have been upgrading both our hardware and software platforms to allow for new features to be added to our applications.
If you experience any issues with Sessions, Login or Backup or Restore please ensure you are now running the latest version of our apps.
Our current servers offer the following to all our customers.
- Secure & Free unlimited storage of activity data and attached photographs.
In 2023 we will rolling out our new services including
- Groups & Leaderboards
- Locate Your Friends

While the Northern Hemisphere 2022 is pretty well finished apart from a lucky few who still have some of the white stuff on their mountains.
What a season 2022 has been so far. We would like to thank our millions of enthusiastic Ski Track’ers out there who made our ski season so special.
We are all excited by 2022 Southern Hemisphere – while its too early to know how this will pan out with regard to the weather. At least travelling should be a little easier for those who want the endless winter experience.
Keep an eye on our website as we update Ski Tracks over the summer and of course don’t forget our Bike Tracks application should you be cycling around.
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.
It also includes a sports physics engine that depending on the activity will fuse multiple sensors to provide the highest accuracy possible.
Our beta version of this product has already been deployed in our Wear 3 demo watch app and will soon be integrated into our Watch OS app.
One of the big challenges of developing on small devices is that developers are writing and testing software on hardware and software environments.
SportsKit is different and has been specifically designed to run on Watches and Mobile Devices.
Although it will also form part our advanced sports webkit and editing system.
This technology will totally change the accuracy and performance of our products so look out for the “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 12 years we have had a total downloads of Ski Tracks in the region of 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 2.7 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.
25+ Million miles of Skiing, with 9.9 Billion Vertical Feet, with nearly 8 million Ski Days.
This season we are aiming at least doubling these numbers. We will give a live update on the site when the 2023 Ski Season starts.
