SPLIT Multisport GPS

Now that you're an expert skier, track how fast you're going. You know you made it down kt-22 at Squaw in record time. Split will verify that.

Use Split to set goals and track your performance. You are so much faster than last season. You can also use the app to create a music playlist that gets you going.

Just how high was that mountain exactly? Split will tell you your elevation. Shoot photos and video and share it with your friends. Make sure everyone knows what a speed demon you are. This app is suitable for boarders as well.

The free app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, but requires iOS 4.3 or later.

Oakley Airwave

You look like a serious skier with those Oakley goggles on. But have you checked out the app?

Oakley's Airwave app is perfect for hitting the mountain with friends. Enable GPS "buddy tracking" to tell everyone where you are. It's not your fault you got separated. They just can't keep up.

Not only does the app tell you how fast and how far you're going, it also counts jumps. Sync the app with your Oakley Airwave HUD goggles and you'll even know when you got "major air." View the results through your lenses.

The free app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, but requires iOS 5.1 or later. It is available for Android as well.
