Strava announced Monday its latest integration to help users track even more activities. The popular social fitness app has partnered with the great iOS app Slopes to bring seamless ski and snowboard tracking to Strava users reports 9to5 Mac.

The news was announced in a press release:

Strava, the social network for athletes, announces its integration with Slopes, the top iOS and Apple Watch app for skiers and snowboarders to track their days on the mountain. Slopes detects lifts and runs automatically and provides detailed insight into your performance, while reliving your runs on virtual 3D mountains.

For those not familiar with Slopes, it is an iOS app built specifically with skiers and snowboarders in mind. Its features include the ability to track a user’s speed, distance traveled, change in altitude, time on the hill, and more. Now, all of this data can be incorporated into an athlete’s Strava profile, too.

Built-in Apple Watch compatibility allows the Slopes app to display live stats throughout the run and the app can even detect when the user is on a lift versus skiing or riding downhill. That last feature allows the skier to hit the record button at the start of the first run and let his or her iPhone track their metrics.

Adding skiing and snowboarding to its profile of fitness activities is a nice upgrade for Strava users. During the winter months, we often shift away from the more common running and cycling workouts in favor of other sports instead. Thanks to this new collaboration with Slopes, however, we can continue sharing our workout data all year long.

Slopes is a free download from the App Store with optional in-app purchases to support the developer, Consumed by Code and unlock additional features.
