Hit The Slopes
Taking to the slopes is often considered the ultimate outdoor pursuit, combining adrenaline-fuelled excitement, breathtaking views and a serious core and leg workout. Now, bringing skiing into the 21st century, comes Swiss brand Snowcookie, and gives skiers as much insight, if not more, into their activity as a gym-goer would get on on any machine. The revolutionary device captures the motion of the body and each ski independently thanks to three discreet cookie-sized sensors, one attached to each ski and one strapped to the chest. A total of 105 different parameters including body position, turn quality, balance, stamina and terrain are measured during each run. These then upload to the AI-powered app, which delivers feedback and creates 3D-rendered maps so you can examine and even replay. Being able to zoom into every turn, get actionable insights and compare speed and technique is not only heaven for data-lovers, it allows experts and recreational skiers to improve their skiing abilities more efficiently. As the world’s first and only smart ski system, it’s no surprise this innovative device is taking the mountain-loving set by (snow) storm.
