Description

The Wasatch Backcountry Skiing Map is the iOS version of the popular paper map and website (visit WBSkiing.com). As with the other platforms, the iOS map includes an index to more than 1,000 backcountry locations in Utah’s Central Wasatch mountains. It is the must-have app for Utah hikers and backcountry travelers. With a familiar map-app interface, the Wasatch Backcountry Skiing Map accesses your device’s GPS to display your current location on a high-resolution topo map. And with only a few taps, the “destination arrow” on the integrated compass will point to your desired backcountry ski location. And with a single tap, hundreds of the locations will open the Wasatch Backcountry Skiing Guide website where you can view photographs and detailed information about the location. The app also displays your current elevation and lat/long, and will send your current location via email. And with a tap, you can display detailed information on more than 200 of the locations including skiing difficulty, skinning distance, vertical climb, parking considerations, and more. (Contrary to a posted review, you don't need cell service to use this app--you don't even need a contract with a cell service provider.) NOTICES: When navigating, the “destination arrow” points directly to the destination without regard to hazards such as avalanche paths, cliffs, and rock fall. It is your responsibility to travel in the backcountry safely.

    App is just a topo map with route names and minimal navigation capabilities. Complete ripoff, would not recommend to anyone.

    If you backcountry,sidecountry,cross country, or downhill ski in in the Wasatch, this app is soooo worth the $$. I even use it hiking! Indispensable knowledge and access to a common language in this mountain range.

    I use this app to get pitted. But also to stay safe. Slaying gnar and surviving to slay hot and readys from Little Caesars is the name of the game, and this app helps you win. That and avalanche certification.
  • Necessary tool

    If you are a backcountry skier in the Wasatch this is not a choice. Get the app!
  • So so so necessary in the BC

    I use it every time I'm in the Wasatch. Wish they would expand to northern Wasatch.
  • Not worth $5

    This app isn't much more than a geo referenced Topo map. A very confined topo map of the central Wasatch. It does not show approach routes or descent lines. It has a searchable database of route names but not browsable. You'd have to know the name of the route ahead of time. And if you knew that, you probably have coordinates, pictures, route sketches etc. Save your money and find a free app that has a bigger map.
