The app is intended especially for team leaders and trainers but also for ambitious skiiers who would like to improve their technique. Short videos show how to execute the individual steps correctly from several different perspectives - in real time, slow motion and with diagrams. In order to study individual movement sequences in greater detail, it is possible to move the pictures both forwards and backwards individually.
Still pictures with explanatory texts illustrate the crucial phases of the movement and help users improve their technique so as to ski more efficiently.
Once the app has been downloaded, the videos can be played without an Internet connection. Thanks to its functional design, the app can be used directly on the ski trail.
XC Stopwatch allows the user to enter multiple labels (up to 10) used to identify simultaneous lap timers for the various contestants. When the clock is started, the user can select among the labeled records to control where the saved lap splits are to be placed. Lap splits can be accumulated in this fashion for each of the recorded participants.
XC Stopwatch also contains a database that allows recorded time records to be saved. When the save button is selected, the app generates a record of ALL of the currently recorded participants and their times. The user is prompted for a descriptive label to be used in storing this time record for retrieval at a later time. Unwanted record sets can be easily deleted from the database.
The database is also useful in saving lists of athletes for use in a new race. Just bring up an existing record and select 'Reset' to clear the times and add or modify the athlete list as needed and click on the start button at the beginning of the race.
* Press the Time Label to cycle the number of decimal places displayed
* Long pressing the Time Label to toggle the display of hours on the stopwatch and lap splits
* Long pressing the 'Label Athlete' button allows you to reset all of the athlete labels
* Long pressing the 'Save-Delete' button allows the user to delete a saved record
* Long pres the 'Start/Stop' button to toggle haptic feedback

Long press the START RACE button to add time to the clock in the event the starting gun is missed.
The app keeps track of scores in two ways using the customary rules for scoring XC events. The first method is simply the sum of the places for each of the teams being tracked. These totals are shown in parentheses after the place scores that are recorded under each team label. This type of scoring is typical for team placement in invitational-type meets.
The second type of scoring is used to determine head-to-head scores between teams competing in a dual meet format. Frequently, these meets are conducted with more than two teams so after overall placements are determined, results from each combination of two teams are recalculated by ignoring other team results. While this is a fairly straightforward operation, it is difficult to keep track of these head-to-head scores in real time without an application such as XC Dual Scorekeeper. To use this feature, teams are placed in to the head-to-head slots by pressing the “A” and “B” buttons adjacent to each team label. The app will then place the selected teams in the A or B slots for dual meet scoring and the adjusted totals and individual placements are shown below the A and B team labels.
If time splits are desired, press the “START RACE” button when the starting gun sounds. The user can then toggle between the display of place scores and time splits by pressing the “Current Position” button. The clock can be stopped at the end of the race by pressing the timer button. At this time, the user is given the opportunity to correct scores for any incomplete teams among those being tracked.
Click on the Team Labels to revise the text to the actual team names using your device's keyboard. After typing the name, use the back button to return to the application.
Settings: Typical XC meet scoring uses the top five runners in each team to determine the teams total score and up to seven runners that can displace another team’s scores. However, some rule books alter this rule allowing different numbers of displacing runners. These values can be revised by clicking on the “CHANGE” button.
Note that places for runners over the number of displacing runners show up as 0 but their actual time splits are recorded.
Also note that in invitational meets having more than the maximum number of five teams, the score totals will not be correct because the impacts of the additional teams will not have been taken into account. This can be remedied by naming one of the teams (say Team 5) to "All Other Teams". When this is done, all of the "other" team finishers logged under this heading will be scored and the "Current Place" number will be incremented without regard for the maximum number of displaced runners. So, using this technique, one could accurately keep track of the scoring of up to four teams in a large invitational meet and coaches can keep runners updated on their correct overall placement in the race. Keep in mind that even using this technique, some errors in the score are still possible due to non-displacing runners (i.e., non-scoring runners - incomplete teams, allowing team sizes exceeding max number of displacing runners, etc), but this method should still result in the most accurate score possible making use of available information.
• Long Press Reset Button for full reset (Times/Places & Team Names)
• Press "Current Position" button to toggle between places and time splits
• Name Team 5 to "All Other Teams" and use to log scores of other runners for best accuracy of scores and current runner placement.
It is very simple in use:
Choose temperature and snow type, click the button and receive a complete guide to how you should prepare your skis with grip wax.
As opposed to all other ski waxing apps I've tried, this app explains you both what wax [klister] to put as a base layer, what to put as a top layer, and what you should bring in your backpack or drink belt to ensure that you always have the grip wax you need during your trip.
There's even an FAQ menu with help on how to measure the kick zone, how to remove wax, how to avoid all kinds of waxing problems while skiing, and an overview of what equipment you will need.
At any time you may select language; so far it's available in Norwegian, Swedish, and English.
The app is completely independent of all the ski wax producer; the tips are based on the wax I would have used myself. So if I advice you to use Swix Blue Extra or Rode Rossa klister, I do NOT get any money from Swix or Rode.
More functions will appear in the future, so please let me know if there's anything you wish for.
PS. I do not offer any kind of weather reports. You can find that other places, or preferably just look out of your window and check the thermometer! Touching the snow with your hand is a good way to check the snow type. Tasting it is not recommended.
BTW, using the app does not require an internet connection.

Text records of recorded times can easily be opened and parsed in a spreadsheet at a later time so these times do not have to be manually recorded. Or, send them to the press without having to phone them in! Great time saver for all coaches.
Have you ever missed the starting gun because you were late getting to the start or you were not in a position to hear the starting gun? This has happened to me on more than one occasion. Use the new "ADJUST START" button to add minutes to the stopwatch clock. This feature is similar to one used on the digital time display boards used by professional race timers. They start the race on the official clock after having preset the display boards to one or two minutes. Then they start the time board at that preset time at the instant when the preset time matches the official clock. So, if you miss a start, don't panic - just use the ADJUST START feature.
PRO Version adds capability to GEOTag the saved results so you can remember which course the times were from. Long click on the GEOTag button to bring up a Google Map of the location.
PRO Version also includes refinements to the user interface and more improvements are in the works. Feel free to make suggestions for future refinements in your reviews of this application!
XC Stopwatch Pro is a powerful but very simple to use race timing stopwatch made for coaches, athletes and parents. It is used as a recording stopwatch to time multiple athletes competing in a single event. The XC Stopwatch was designed with cross country running in mind but could be used for many other athletic events such as track and field, swimming and even NASCAR racing.
XC Stopwatch allows the user to enter multiple labels (up to 10) used to identify simultaneous lap timers for the various contestants. When the clock is started, the user can select among the labeled records to control where the saved lap splits are to be placed. Time splits can be accumulated in this fashion for each of the recorded participants.
XC Stopwatch Pro also contains a database that allows recorded time records to be saved. When the save button is selected, the app generates a record of ALL of the currently recorded participants and their times. The user is prompted for a descriptive label to be used in storing this time record for retrieval at a later time. Unwanted record sets can be easily deleted from the database.
The database is also useful in saving lists of athletes for use in a new race. Just bring up an existing record and select 'Reset' to clear the times and add or modify the athlete list as needed and click on the start button at the beginning of the race. All of the saved race participant labels from the retrieved data will remain intact.

The map charts the position of over 440 resorts across the Alps from Lyon to Ljubljana, and Milan to Munich. The app is effectively a digital version of the paper map, which was first released for the 2011 season, but with several additional features, including:
· the routes of more than 15 overnight trains to the Alps from countries across the continent to help skiers travel in style from destinations as far afield as London, Rome, Prague, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Moscow (verified by the Man in Seat 61)
· a total of 130 rail-served resorts uncovered by the SkiRail Map research team from Swiss slopes within an hour train’s ride of Zurich, to Italian resorts just an hour from the coast
· the position of 25 airports in, or near, the Alps, highlighting the ones with their own railway station for a seamless connection with the local rail network
· the addition of over 50 railway stations in the Alps to help ski-rail passengers orientate themselves as they travel through the mountains
· grid references for all 130 rail-served resorts to enable destinations to be found quickly and easily
· a number of unusual, non rail-served destinations such as Liechtensteins’s only ski resort (Malbun, and Gréolieres Les Neige in Provence (just 20 kms from the Mediterranean with views across to Corsica)
A wide range of skiing data is provided on resorts accessible by rail including the extent of downhill and cross-country skiing available, altitude, vertical drop, difficulty of skiing, and journey times by rail to the nearest city.
Intrepid skiers will now be able to plan their relaxing, low-carbon adventures from their smartphones, and benefit from train travel, the most enjoyable form of mountain transport other than skiing itself.
The original SkiRail Map of the Alps is on sale from Roger Lascelles (Maps) Ltd and from most good bookstores, and is available both as a handy folded map and wall map.
