"Let's go skiing this weekend"

Reviewed by / Jan 15, 2013

Ski the World is an useful guide with a huge database of ski resorts from around the world

Are you planning go skiing? You should first check weather forecast, state of the snow, lift tickets prices, lodging, trail map and slopes/lift info. That's all you can get from "Ski the World" a complete ski resorts guide app that features the most-known ski resorts worldwide (over 2000 so far).

You can search by name from the top bar (we're missing some filters though, by country or by size, for example); or simply scroll down until you find the one you're looking for (alphabetically sorted). You can bookmark your favorites for a faster access next time you check app. Tap any resort to get an info pack that will help you decide which resort visit next. Seven parameters make up that pack: trail map, snow report, weather, web cams, slopes + lifts (number), lift tickets and lodging. Bear in mind that most of the resorts don't have all that parameters available, just some of them.

Likewise, you can check out if there are any reviews posted by the community (not too many reviews so far). Despite of this, the app is set in a simple yet cute interface. The info displayed is fairly enough for take a decision and database is just huge. Recommended.

    Die App lädt schnell und stabil. Für mich sind das wichtigsten Dinge. Da die Daten auch absolut aktuell sind und schön aufbereitet werden gibts von mir die volle Punktzahl :-)
