Random iPhone App of the week
: For those who love winter, being out in the cold and skiing, Copper Mountain
's mobile app might be a perfect fit. Dubbed Sherpa, the hands-free app offers
skiers insider mountain information by using the GPS function on their phone. The app encourages users to wear headphones as they listen to Sherpa tell them about secret mountain trails or simply says
they're entering an area best suited for expert skiers and snowboarders. The app also offers terrain updates, like which sides of the trails have fresh snow and which will be groomed, in real time.
One helpful feature of the app is the call ski patrol function. If you need assistance, the app can connect you to the ski patrol and provide them with your exact location. The app, created by Made
, is available for free in the App Store.
