January 7, 2013 – SNOCRU, the free mobile app that allows skiers and snowboarders to see and connect with each other on the mountain in real time, is pleased to announce a host of new updates for the New Year. The most exciting new feature for the app is a “leaderboard” that allows users to compete against one another to ski and ride the most vertical feet.
“We’ve been listening to what our friends and customers want from their app when they’re out skiing and riding,” states SNOCRU founder Ed Lewis. “These new features make SNOCRU an even better one-stop resource and more fun to use.”
At the top of the update list for SNOCRU is a new In-App Leaderboard that tracks vertical feet, speed, run total and check-ins to the SNOCRU web-page and lets users compare with others around the world to earn bragging rights.
In addition to the leaderboard, some of the other updates for SNOCRU in 2013 are:
- Overhauled tracking to deliver service even when no cell connection is available
- Track Day on a resort’s detail screen
- Select resort in the tracking section
- “What is SNOCRU” button on the login screen (shows the SNOCRU How-To video)
- General bug fixes and performance optimizations
With these updates SNOCRU continues to set the standard as the ultimate resource for skiers and riders who want to meet and find friends on the hill, view global snow forecasts, track their day on the mountain, even find local restaurants, ATMs and even hospitals.
Currently for the month of January, SNOCRU is running a “Ski Salt Lake City” promotion in conjunction with Visit Salt Lake, Black Diamond and POC. The grand prize includes round-trip airfare for a 3-day, 4-night trip for two to Salt Lake City with three ski days valid at Alta, Brighton,Snowbird or Solitude.
