1) Bluetooth helmet

There’s nothing more relaxing than listening to your favourite playlist while you traverse down a mountainside, but wearing headphones can be incredibly dangerous if you can’t pay attention to the world around you.

Thankfully, there is a wide range of Bluetooth helmets available on the market that enable you to listen to music or even take phone calls without drowning out any external noise.

2) High tech goggles

With a pair of smart ski goggles, you can keep track of your location, speed and altitude via a small display in the corner of your lens.

3) Airbag backpack

If you’re looking to stay safe in an area that’s prone to avalanches, an airbag backpack is a great investment, as they are uniquely designed to inflate upon impact and prevent you from sinking into deep snow.

4) Satellite communicator

In the likely event that you’re heading to an area that doesn’t have mobile coverage on and around the ski slopes, staying connected is essential.

With the ZOLEO Satellite Communicator, you can send and receive messages from anywhere in the world via the Iridium global satellite network. This innovative device is also designed with an SOS button and a GPS location share function so that you can get the help you need in an emergency.

The device is lightweight, fits in the palm of your hand and operates until -20°C. Aside from the communication and safety features, it also offers DarkSky™ weather forecasts for your location.

5) Temperature protecting phone covers

Your smartphone is your lifeline on the slopes, but most models aren’t designed to withstand cold temperatures. With an insulating phone pouch, you can keep your phone functioning properly at a warmer temperature.

6) Digital ski instructor

If you’re looking to improve your skiing technique, installing a digital ski instructor app on your phone is a great option. Simply fit the device inside one of your boots, connect it to your app and your digital ski instructor will analyse your technique as you ski and coach you with live audio feedback.

7) Smartwatch

With an advanced smartwatch designed for snow sports, you can track your heart rate, measure your blood oxygen saturation levels, record your location and much more.

8) Action camera

Whether you want to share your skiing experience with your family and friends or simply document your trip for yourself, a waterproof and shockproof action camera is a great way to record your skiing adventure.

9) Heated gloves

With a pair of heated gloves, you can keep your hands warm and prevent them from seizing up in the bitter cold.

10) External battery pack

If your device runs out of power while you’re in the wilderness, it is not only a huge inconvenience but could also be incredibly dangerous. With an external battery pack, you can keep your smartphone and other essential devices fully charged.
