This season’s updated Ski Explorer app is packed with even more resort info - straight from our teams on the ground - and some snazzy new features to help you make the most of the mountain.

Get to grips with the slopes with our interactive routes, the latest snow reports, piste maps, a GPS tracker and our ever-popular friend finder. Our teams live and breathe your resort, so you’ll be getting all the inside info before you even arrive.

And you can now access all your Crystal booking details directly from the app - so no more scraps of paper at the bottom of your bag. But don’t worry if you haven’t booked directly with Crystal this year - you won’t be able to see your booking details but you can still access all the app’s other great features.

We’ve packed in everything you might need to know about your holiday, including:

Easy access to your booking information. Just add your booking details to the app and you’ll have your itinerary at your fingertips. You can see what you’ve booked, download your tickets and vouchers and even get directions back to your accommodation when you’ve had one too many schnapps!

Our fantastic friend finder, a great way to keep tabs on your mates whether they’re on the piste or in-resort. So you can pick your après perch, choose your lunch spot or plan your final run of the day together, stress-free. Best of all, it’s secure and simple to use - only the friends you invite can see where you are and share their location with you.

Even more recommended step-by-step routes for you to ski this winter. They’ve been put together by our resort teams, who live and breathe the mountain, and now include an interactive piste map view to help you get your bearings. And if you’re partial to a humblebrag, you can post your progress on Facebook too.

Handy stats on your day on the mountain, using GPS to track your distance and altitude. So you can chart your progress through the week, work on your PB and compare your figures with your friends.

And plenty more to boot:
• The latest snow reports
• A piste map showing your location
• A full guide to your resort
• A handy resort map with landmarks and accommodation marked out
• Tips on where’s best to ski at what times
• Lists of our favourite off-the-slope activities
• A quick-glance guide of things to do in-resort
• Your rep’s contact details

Just a little note:
Continued use of GPS running in the background can run your smartphone’s battery life down.

Nice Idea In principle good idea but needs refining. Lost my data on mountain time so unreliable and occasionally slow to respond. Needs work to iron out bugs.

Alex Williams

Very good app, good little addition to the holiday. Ski tracker good, something you didn't know you needed!

Andrew Rowe

Tracking inaccurate, useful otherwise Max gradient claims to be 138%, app currently thinks Altitude is 100m when resort is at 1600m! Finally can't add profile photo from gallery on android, fails to attach. Only camera pics work.

Sonofthrall Duran

This app looks good but doesnt deliver. Ski tracker never worked, kept saying no gps signal however my other ski app found the singal strong. The find your friend part didnt work either, out of 6 in the group who were all onlone i would only ever see 1 person and it would place them in the wrong location. Needs work but has potential.

G Mackie

Useless All I wanted was a decent piste map for Cervinia and this isn't it. The key is missing and the detail is worse than the flimsy free maps you get everywhere. All appearance and no substance. Wtf do you have to do to get a decent map ? Avoid but what can you expect from Crystal whose reps are only there to try to upsell pub crawls anyway ?

Isabel Hatcher

Crystal Ski Explorer App Local resort info supposedly but nothing worked. Ski tracker very basic in comparison to others available. No weather info.

Donna Pearson

A great idea, worked well and useful The piste map was useful, ski tracking seemed accurate. Good link to updates from the reps. Couldn't find a list of the activities available whilst in resort which could be useful rather than relying on the handout we were given and promptly lost!

Robert Potton

Pointless Added nothing to what is already easily available. Snow conditions were just plain wrong (maybe because the Ski Club of GB were out-of-date). Uninstalled.

Andrea Ong

Like having a ski rep in your pocket? Useless app. The info is always out of date so of no use at all!

Alexander Grayson

Friend tracker crashes the app. Rest seems to work OK.

Marcel Kock

So close... but yet I think the app is a good addition to the holiday. It gives a lot of information. .. however the ski tracking does properly work... I ran the tracker alongside strava and the results were always far lower on the crystal app.

Chris Bush

Nice idea but needs work. A decent weather forecast and lift status would be useful. Piste map and twitter feed was handy

Matthew Collins

Absolutely dreadful... Resort map, the more you zoom in, the smaller the font goes. Piste map is no good - all round poor.

Patrick yates

Excellent Superb app, has lots of useful information

Andrey Kuzmenko

Nice app Better than paper map, some good info

Austin Marsh

Alright Why don't you have the key phone numbers in the app. You say the app is free but I am going to spend a fortune on roaming to get this app to use GPS.

Neil Pickles

Looks really useful, nice and quick, will see how it works in the mountains in a few weeks.

Jade Ezis

Skiing app It is amazing you can track yoyr mum ir dad ir whoever if you get lost!

Peter Godfrey

Great app Excellent app very easy to use and tons of info.

Amy Knight

Pomporavo resort Loved this app, great ski company too book with would highly recommend


Useful Really helpful when reps aren't around

Ian Peckitt

Poor effort Unable to even log in from home on full wifi . Cant see how this is going to work in the mountains.

Steve Goossens

This app does some things well and some things are just mediocre or completely broken. The resort info, based on your booking info, works very well and you can easily create a group to add friends. Being able to locate your friends sounds like a good idea, but in practise it does not work well for several reasons, e.g. each person must have location reporting enabled in the Crystal app; each person must have roaming data enabled to transmit their location when on the piste, or Wi-Fi connected if at a bar/restaurant etc.; the friends map is a road map! The piste map (I stayed at La Rosiere) was cropped, so some of the runs were cut off or missing entirely, the legend was not visible. I would REALLY have liked to see my current location shown on the piste map, and the positions of my friends, but neither of these ideas is a feature. When I'm unsure of which run I'm on, or how to get to someone who's lost, this would have been brilliant, but instead, Crystal thought a partial, non-interactive map with no legend was a good idea!!! The snow report had broken/stale data showing 0cm and 0cm for 2 previous days, 38cm for current day, and 2cm then 0cm for the next 2 days (EVERY day!)

Ken Laidlow

This App is great. It is about 10000% more use than the In-Resort Reps.

Phil B

Useful Previous problems now fixed. Allows me to access all my holiday info instantly!

David Marshall

All round great app Really easy to use. Mainly used it to: A. See how far I've skied, and B. See how fast my maximum and average speeds were. Lots of other great features like resort map and weather reports. All around brilliant!

roger coleman

Doesn't work Maps don't load, can't find friends, piste map 10 years old, piste numbers all wrong, weather wrong, doesn't update during the day

Ken Woods

Ken OK. Nice idea and works reasonably well. Keep working at it.

Bilgay Akhan

Good app but can be improved a lot. Also it stops now & then. Reliability should be improved

philip dee

Phil dee Useful app for resort information. Things to do and see . Weather updates also helpful.

Terri Horner

Excellent app. Everything in one place. Just slightly more detailed weather report would be useful.

Martin Pewsey

Works fine on my Nexus 7 but piste maps refuse to load on my phone(android 4.4)

Rebecca Fellows

Rubbish- our destination not listed Our destination was not listed and our rep was not in resort. Although available via text or call (at our cost) this mean't that we relied on the app for basic info. Our destination was not available. We were told there were bugs in the app but no amount of installing/uninstalling/entering booking ref/selecting a different destination fixed this.

Rebecca Clough

Keeps crashing Content good but keeps crashing

Nicki Scott

Crashes quite a lot, otherwise great!

Jamie Joyce

Totally excellent all round

Cecilia McNulty

Useless Freezes constantly...according to it today I have been skiing for 10 hours now..I am unable to stop the recording. Was unable to add friends to group,had to delete and reinstall losing my first days tracking. Doesn't pinpoint my position or those of my friends. Gps tracking of the days route is terrible. Weathwr fkrecadt is also completely inaccurate-has been snowing constantly in Soll now for 3 days-according to app we have had 5 cm and none yesterday at all. All in all a woeful attempt.will be deleting

Audrey Jeffrey

Downloaded & deleted in 5mins Won't recognise my booking. Loaded as if browsing holidays. In Les Arcs 1950 currently which as previous reviewer states has an altitude of 105m! It won't download piste map either. Goodbye

Ben Upton

Poor experience Frequently crashes. Whichever snow forecast this links to is often wrong. Great idea for the app and good choice of functionality, just that a lot of it doesn't work

Mark Smith

A useful app A useful app with good information about the resorts. Particularly good as it also includes contact information about reps.

Lee Pringle

Some really good features but keeps freezing. Closing app and re-opening works but it's a pain!

Jan Oakes

Good Dose what it says

Anthony Thompson

Not accessible Booking references that are recognised by the website are not recognised by this app.

Sam Freer

Very Good

Alexandra S.

Chocolate teapot Does not recognize booking

Michael OBoyle

Great app Covers every resort in the Crystal broucher and more

Peter Keeney

Poor Hardly ever worked. The tracking system, which I gave up on, was less than useless and the weather forecast was about the same. Tweets were useful though.

Greg Jackson

Great and useful app Used it everyda to track skiing. Sometimes the accuracy of thegps is a little out but doesnt stop the enjoyment

Ralph Mould

Useful but unreliable Has good info, some nice itineraries, and good information about the resort. Most useful before and at start of holiday but crashes too much to be useful during it.

Sophie Miller

Did everything I needed it to! App worked well with WiFi and in offline mode. Gave me all the info I needed about my holiday. Thanks x

Chris Bissell

Ok so far On the resort map let me tap each POI once to find out what it is and then choose to go to the detailed info page. Auto launching the wrong info is annoying. Otherwise ideas all seem good.

Ralf Pearson

Needs work Good to have holiday info. But snow report, open runs and mapping are all wrong.

James Grimwood

Well worth a download, lots of useful information and features in one place.

Ade Coward

Out of date Map of zam all see was out of date so couldn't be used nor the recommended routes. Also weather report is a day out of step. Very disappointed as looked quite good initially.

Rod Read

Crystal 5 x diamond stars This app is going to make the holiday easier & more fun. Having tested now (after getting a phone for my kids to make meeting up easy)... It's pretty good. Updated positions are Limited of course by signal. Not sure what crystal does with your tracking data afterwards ....

Jinmi Kemple

Doesn't work all the time. Maps don't open or any of the options don't work.

Steve S

Useless no piste map available for the area we are skiing - Stubai Glacier

Ian Peckitt

Poor effort Unable to even log in from home on full wifi . Cant see how this is going to work in the mountains. I have now tried this on the slopes and it is RUBISH! the tracking is hopeless. Gave up after being told average speed was 580.00 kph.

Charlotte Lueken

This app crashes regularly. The find a friend feature is not reliable and mainly doesn't work.

King_ Octopus

Rubbish The resolution is wrong for my screen. Even if the resolution was right it still dose not do much. Why do they advertise this app!!!

Paul Kacarevic

Keeps Crashing When viewing the recommended routes it keeps crashing

Dan Scialom

It's OK I'd rather the app had all the transfer information like bus times and where and when to you should catch your transfers from but maybe if the reps were a bit more present it wouldn't need that.

Rodger Brown

Waste of time Good idea but nothing works weather is crap and the tracker won't let u make groups

Ben Heath

Useful Top features but unreliable (weather ) nice to put booking ref in for info

Ben Rymer

Awesome App! Brilliant App for seeing all the details of your trip including tickets and extras. There's better tracking and weather apps out there but this is an essential app when travelling with Crystal!

Ben Williams

Useful Great source of info whilst your in the resort!
