Beyond Expectations (by TinyUniverse)
I am going to Aspen for the holidays and figured I would give this a go. My first impression was that this was going to be another scanned resort trail map app, boy was I excited to fly around to all four mountains see the well designed map of all four maps. I would pay for this app, can’t believe it is free! Thanks AccuTerra and keep coming with these great ski resort maps.

Thanks! (by balthisar)
Great little program, and a great developer for listening to feedback! (thanks for letting me choose metric units distances despite my US phone settings!)
     
Augmented Reality (by aoberlander)
Not consistently accurate in actual location of peaks, and recalibrating (via figure 8 motion) often yields same results.

Treat yourself to a Private Ski Instructor this Winter – for the entire Season!

The SkiTips series of Ski Teaching Apps sets new standards in Sports instruction, enabling skiers for the first time to take all of their instructional media out on the slopes with them. The Lessons demonstrated in SkiTips1 cover all the fundamentals of skiing that beginners and intermediates require to become competent skiers. This App teaches you how to use pressure and edging and the skis’ side-cut to carve turns with very little effort as well as how to perform ‘extension’ turns, a very useful turn when advancing to steep slopes. Every level of skier will benefit from reviewing all the exercises presented.

Who would have believed it!! (by Jomorgante)
I hadn’t skied in the last 30 years and didn’t believe that I would ever dare to again. But this app with it’s great instructional material which reduces complicated movements into easy steps and tips really did the trick. Breaking it all down to rolling, applying pressure and carving, I managed to miraculously even get down even the steepest slopes. I still can’t believe it and can’t wait to ski more.

Another winner from 2XL Games (by yupi7100)
I love all 3 of the racing games from 2XL Games. They’re extremely polished graphically, very fun to play and great value for the money. I wish they would offer their 3 iPhone/iTouch racing titles in the Playstation network. I would love to play this game, Supercross and ATV offroad in my PSP!
     
Amazing game! (by brazil009)
An amazing game with great graphics and the controls are easy to use, only suggestion i have is to make more rides and they should have stats like one has more speed or handling than another. Overall its definitly worth the 5 dollars
