Track your Alpine skills with GPS
Sumit Tracker has been introduced to the Alpine ski resorts, a mobile phone-sized GPS tracking device that traces every turn, trick and twist on the snowy slopes.
At the end of their day, anyone enjoying Meribel, Val d'Isere, Tignes, La Plagne or Les Arcs skiing holidays will receive a full colour, double-sided report charting their progress on the Alpine slopes, so you can compare with your mates to see who really is the best skier.
"We have all been skiing in a group where there is always someone who brags about how many black runs they skied or how fast," said Sumit Director and Founder James Doughty. "There was never any way of knowing if they were boasting or not."
The GPS system is a fantastic little gadget to use while on a skiing holiday in Tignes, Les Arcs or any of the other excellent Alpine resorts. It can be used to measure yourself against your mates, or even to track how much you have improved during your stay.
