The Wasatch Backcountry Skiing Map is the Android version of the popular paper map and website (http://WBSkiing.com). As with the other platforms, the Android map includes an index to more than 1,000 backcountry locations in Utah’s Central Wasatch mountain range. It's the must-have app for Utah backcountry skiers and hikers. The latest version displays red slope-shading when the estimated slope is 30-degrees or steeper.
With its familiar interface, the Wasatch Backcountry Skiing Map accesses your Android 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. (See the app in action in the video, above.)
IMPORTANT: 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.
TIPS: You do not need to have cell service to use this app--you don't even need a contract with a cell service provider. WBSkiing will run slowly if your device is running low on memory.
