A new smartphone app is allowing skiers to monitor their performance

Ski enthusiasts can now pore over their performance and plan their next day on the slopes by using a free smartphone app which is tipped to become the "next big thing" in the sport.

AlpineReplay is proving a hit in skiing and snowboarding circles due to its ability to chart an individual's performance on the piste in terms of air times, calories burned, distance, speed and vertical drop.

The app also allows users to share their figures with friends through social media channels - meaning performance can be debated online while planning further excursions or arranging suitable ski travel insurance .

AlpineReplay also allows skiers to compare, in real time, run-by-run statistics against anyone else skiing the same slopes. People can also take on other skiers in head-to-head virtual contests, based on each other's statistics.

David Loshkin, co-founder of AlpineReplay, said: "People are using it to better themselves. They're using it to share. They're using it to raise money for good causes."

The app is compatible with iPhone and Android devices.
