Perisher resort have just released an iPhone app and it looks pretty cool! It includes all the basics you need and want including some unique and fun features.
The one I am most keen to check out is the ability to record your movements around the mountain, log your distance and vertical then share that with your mates.
There is also location services that let you find not only yourself around the resort but also your mates! Perfect for when riding with a big crew.
Outside of this there is all your usuals like a village map, lift info, Twitter feed and more. Here is the complete list of features:
- Locate yourself on the Perisher trail maps
- Locate your friends on the trail map and let them locate you, courtesy of Fire Eagle location sharing services.
- Record your tracks and log your vertical distance.
- Display your ski and snowboard runs on the trail map. Email your runs to friends, post them to Facebook, or view them in Google Earth.
- Find up-to-date information about the mountain, including snow conditions, weather, and webcam images.
- Get up-to-the-minute information about lift status and amenities.
- Quickly find information about lessons and other programs.
- Easily locate and contact key places at the resort with the built in directory.
- Learn facts, statistics and history of the resort.
Best of all, the app is free and available now in iTunes. Lets hope some more resorts come out with similar apps too!
