Snowboard news : iRide reaches 9,000 downloads on Apple iOS
iRide Ski and Snowboard app reached 9K downloads on Apple iOS this week – actually 9,170 if we’re going to be completely accurate. Christ only knows what happened to Android users as we’re only at 287 on the other big OS.
We’ve got a lot more planned for the coming season. Stay tuned.

Live Feed: The iRide live feed features updated snowboarding footage, with the option to rate and like tricks. Upload your photos and videos to the feed and tag them by trick name and resort. The Trick Dictionary has a comprehensive list of Snowboard Trick Names so you can tag any combination. Optionally mark the trick as a fail and/or share to Facebook/Google+. Other snowboarders then send you kudos by rating your riding.
Snowboard Tracker: Trace your ride using the iRide Snowboard Tracker. The tracker maps your average speed, maximum speed, distance covered, total descent, maximum altitude and total time riding. Earn points and awards for your freeriding and compare your stats with the community – amongst friends, by resort, by country or globally.
Resort Weather and Piste Maps: Get updated weather forecasts from your favourite Snowboard Resorts, check their website and social posts or get in touch with them by phone or email – direct from the app. Download resort piste maps from over 1,000 snowboard areas.
Rider Profile: The Snowboarder Profile is your ID and home to all your snowboard videos and pictures. Add your local resort, your stance (regular or goofy), number of years riding, the gear you ride and your favourite resorts. Also lists awards, friends and your rating.
Snowboard Progression: Improve your snowboarding with the Snowboard Progression Lists, a sequence of structured snowboard tricks which increase in difficulty, pushing your riding. There are five levels featuring tricks in board control, airs, grabs, rotations and rails and boxes. Complete each list to move to the next level while improving your snowboarding.
Snowboard Trick Challenge: Take part in the weekly Trick Challenge, a global comp featuring a randomly-selected snowboard trick from your skill level. Compete against other snowboarders around the world to get the highest ranked trick. Other riders rate the winner.

Snowboard Fail Tricks: Watch and rate the best snowboarding fails in the Fail Tricks section.
Snowboard Battles: Challenge friends and other snowboarders to compete in a fun head-to-head battle on a trick you select. You can choose tricks from the Snowboard Progression Lists or make up your own from the Snowboard dictionary. You post your video, they post theirs – other riders rate the winner.
Leaderboards: Optionally see how your tricks and freeriding stack up against other snowboarders – globally, nationally, by local resort or amongst friends.
