For your own safety and that of others be careful and take it easy in the slopes.
The must-have app for the competitive alpine skier! Track your runs, challenge your friends and compete to become King of the Slope!
With King of the Slope you have a tracking tool that collects data about your skiing, wherever and whenever you ski. The app tracks how much vertical drop you gather, your average speed, what distance you cover and your altitude. Use it to track and analyse your own skiing, or choose to go social and challenge your Facebook friends or the whole ski resort!
With thousands of well-known ski resorts already in the database and with the ability to suggest and add new resorts, you can use the app all over the world. Alpine skiing has never been more social, fun and scientific!
- Track your ski runs with GPS-functionality optimised for skiing.
- Challenge your friends and follow their progress in the app.
- All your skiing in one single app – works at all ski resorts.
- Works without data connection and can be run in the background.
You can create and compete against your friends in pre-defined challenges: Most vertical drop, Longest distance or Highest altitude. The challenges can be private or public. To create a private challenge you start by deciding what type of challenge you want to compete in and for how long it should last. Then invite your friends to participate. It’s that simple. And if you want to, you can bet and decide in advance the reward for the winner and the appropriate penalty for the loser.
In the public challenge you can compete against other King of the Slope participants at the ski resort you’re currently in. Join and compete to become King of the Slope. It’s your chance to own the mountain!
Are you ready to let your achievements on the slopes be scrutinised by your friends, your ski resort or by the whole world?
Vattenfall is the official sponsor of the International Ski Federation. Vattenfall also supports skiing by providing the electricity which powers the lifts, illuminates the slopes, allows measuring instruments to function, and snow cannons to fill the slopes with snow. All so that you can get the best out of your skiing. Quite simply, it’s energy for winter sports.

King of the Slope is optimised to work on an iPhone 4 during an entire day with a fully loaded battery (fluctuations in battery performance can occur depending on age and quality of device). Please note that all GPS usage drastically shortens battery life compared to normal usage.
The application works without a data connection on the mountain. Data is automatically stored to servers when connection is resumed.
The mobile works in the background, even if it’s locked or when you’re talking, messaging or taking photos. Please note that the application uses the GPS even when it’s running in the background.
The application data is dependent on the quality of the GPS signal and the GPS hardware. Different types of devices have different hardware. While the application works on all iPhone models with built-in GPS, it is optimised for – and works best with – the iPhone 4.
This application is not sponsored or administered by Apple or Facebook. Users share info and data with Vattenfall and not with Apple or Facebook.
