Our statewide, no-reception-needed trail app is available for iPhones and Android phones and can now be downloaded for Free.
Be sure to download the app over wi-fi. If you currently have last year's 2015/16 app, it will update automatically when we release this year's version, with latest trails and the new trail conditions display feature.
The new trail conditions display feature will be available as a $14.95 in-app purchase, good for the entire season. The clubs will receive 45% of this revenue as part of their profit share (after Google and Apple take their 30% cut).
And the four new types of trail conditions are, drumroll, club-reported as Open/Open with Caution/Closed with text comments as needed; GPS groomer tracking with time delay from handful of clubs; two types of crowd-sourced rider data which you will see once the trails open.
It's Fall 2016 and we are working on the apps. You will be able to enjoy all these features, many requested by riders in our annual spring survey:
* Four types of trail conditions display (coming new for 2016/17)
* Turn-by-turn navigation (visual and voice)
* More waypoint options
* Upload routes from webmap to app
* Mileage display during breadcrumb route tracking
* Sharing of saved breadcrumb routes
* More businesses and expanded descriptions of businesses near the trails, so you have their hours and other helpful info without reception
* Mark and save waypoints/favorite spots
* New user interface
Your app really saved my wife and I this weekend. We were out sledding early on Saturday in Delaware County. The wind was really howling and, in the open field, all the tracks were getting covered by blowing snow. The trails were not well marked and the drifts were getting challenging to manage, especially for my wife and I with this only being our second year of sledding. We turned back and this unfamiliar trail became even more challenging. Every open field we came to the tracks were indistinguishable. The breadcrumb tracking allowed me to see when I was coming off course. It saved us about four times during our journey. We got back to our cabin just as white out conditions hit. Thank you again for this tool. Was a lifesaver on Saturday. It is also giving us the confidence to go places we would have hesitated going a year ago." -Keith G, northern NJ
