Wasatch Backcountry Skiing Map app review: powerful navigation

Reviews

Introduction

Skiers and hikers heading out into the Central Wasatch mountain range in Utah will be doing themselves a great service by downloading Wasatch Backcountry Skiing Map for iPhone and iPad as it offers some incredibly valuable offline maps and navigation features.

The best iPhone apps for skiing-2021

I’m thoroughly impressed by what the developer has done with this app because it offers a great deal of detail that can be accessed either online, offline, or without the use of any GPS functionality, so I can really see it coming in handy if something happens to your paper map or you don’t have one.

Navigate Safely and Confidently

Wasatch Backcountry Skiing Map does work very well if you’re out of service and need to rely on your device’s GPS, but even if that fails you, you’ll still be able to access the map content; you just won’t be able to see your current location.

Best iphone and ipad apps

I wouldn’t recommend relying solely on this app for navigation, but having it as a backup in combination with a physical map, compass, and the necessary navigational skills should go a long way to preventing you from getting lost.
