Unlock The Mountain - Most of us rely on advice from our friends to improve.  It’s time to change that. Meet Carv your new ski coach - Carv fits in any ski boot. It analyses your technique and gives you with live professional audio coaching, as you ski. Unlimited coaching for the cost of a few lessons.

The Tech - Tough yet sensitive. Carv have packed 36 pressure sensors and a 9 axis 3D motion sensor with accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer into each insert and built it to withstand hard days of skiing. The best part is, because Carv fits under the liner of your boot, you can use it in custom moulded ski boots, stock boots or rentals. It even works with your custom insoles. Batteries that will outlast your legs. Carv feature optimised battery chemistry to handle the cold, giving you over 3 days of skiing per charge. That’s more than anyone’s legs can handle. Built to fall! Carv’s battery pack sits on the strap of your boot with a specially designed clip and a robust case to keep it secure, no matter how radical your turns (or how often you fall). All of this in a compact (3mm thick), lightweight (296g per foot) waterproof design.

The Analysis - Carv is the world's best ski tracker. Carv’s metrics have been developed with intermediates, instructors and racers to make sure it picks up the smallest differences in technique of every skier. Carve measures your ski technique over 4 key metrics. BALANCE: Are you leaning too far back? Balance is the foundation of great skiing. Carv shows you if you are centered over your skis and gives you balance exercises to help you improve. EDGING: How well are you engaging your edges? Rolling your skis smoothly into and out of each turn gives is the foundation of great control (and that sweet carving feeling). Learn how to edge your skis together and create those angles. ROTARY: Are you turning your skis smoothly, in parallel? Carv measures your parallel movement and your left/right symmetry. Ironing out those inconsistencies is the key to efficiency and style. PRESSURE: Are you really on the outside ski? Balancing against the outside ski is the foundation of great skiing. Find out how much pressure you've got on each ski and where in the turn you are applying it.

The Coaching - At the heart of Carv is your Ski:IQ - think of it like a technique health check. Carv analyses your technique and shows you which areas of your skiing will provide your next breakthrough. Set your own goals - Do you want to carve with your hip to the snow, or do you just want to avoid falling into the snow? Carv will help you get there. A coaching revolution - Carv combines advice from the best instructors in the world with the power of data science and game design. Learn from the best - Skiing with world-class instructors used to be a luxury most of us couldn’t afford. Now you can learn from some of the best instructors in the world, including Eric Lipton, elite coach to the US ski team, and Kaylin Richardson, 2x Olympian. Carv analyses how you ski by comparing your turns with data from some of the best instructors in the world (instructor-examiners PSIA, CSIA, BASI, NZSIA, APSI).

Find out what is holding back your technique and get the right advice to fix it.

Ski your own way - Sometimes we just want to ski without distraction. In Free Ski mode, Carv works in the background to analyse your skiing. When you get on the chairlift, Carv will give the best tip to help you improve on your next run.

Discover drills you’ll love - We’ve taken traditional ski drills and redesigned them as interactive games. Audio feedback on every turn makes the learning experience fast and addictive. Think you can get to level 20?

Challenge your skills - It’s time to show us what you’ve got with a range of challenges designed to test your skills. Let's find out who’s really king of the hill.

What’s new in the App for this season?

App update Launching November 2021



Know what to work on next

Have you ever felt stuck in your skiing, knowing you can improve but unsure what to work on? Knowing what to improve can be difficult, even for expert skiers.

This year, Carv will give you a personalised focus area based on your last few days of skiing, so you'll know exactly what - and how - to improve.

Your Carv will recommend the most relevant drills to help you break through your plateau.



Track your progress

Last year, we set our target zones based on top-level skiing. However, many of you told us that you weren't aiming to topple the elite!

This year we wanted to make the metrics more meaningful for every skier. Carv will show you a new personalised target zone based on your ability level and your most recent runs.

You'll also be able to track your progress for each metric over time - perfect for improving a tricky area!



Ski-specific workouts

Are you familiar with the post-first-day aches and pains?

You don't need to be a superhuman to enjoy your day on the slopes, but many skiers are keen to improve their strength and mobility to make the most of their time on snow.

We've been busy filming skiing-specific video workouts with top instructors, so you can get in shape for your next trip from home.



Grasp the fundamentals

The best ski coaches don't just tell you how to improve. They also explain the key concepts so you know why you're improving.

We've worked with world-class coaches to break down key concepts behind each Carv metric, so you can work on your weakest areas ahead of your next ski day.

Carv will show you why each concept is important to your skiing, and what makes the best skiers so good. And of course, we'll show you how to improve!



For the visual learners

Over a year of lockdown, everyone’s been looking online to get their fix of the sport they love, and videos are the most popular way for skiers to improve while you're away from the mountains.

That's why we've worked with top instructors from across the globe to bring you video technique masterclasses in-app, so you'll get video lessons that fit the technique area you're focused on.

No more scouring YouTube for the right video!



Easy mode-switching

So you're ripping up the mountain in free ski mode, but you want to dial in an aspect of your technique. Now you can switch modes without ending your current skiing session.

And with quick-start recording, we've made it easier to start using Carv in half the taps when you hit the first lift.



Music to your ears

Carv is now compatible with your favourite music service, so you can ski with your favourite tunes or podcast. And when Carv gives you an audio tip, your music will fade and return when it's done.

(But please remember to always be considerate of your fellow skiers and be aware of others on the slopes!)



We've listened to your feedback

We've surveyed and spoken to thousands of Carv skiers over the past year, and implemented the most popular changes that you asked for. New features for 2021 include:

  • Achievements - Carv now highlights your biggest improvements from the last few days.
  • Voice Control - Hands too cold to get your phone out? Now you can just ask Siri or Google Assistant to start skiing with Carv.
  • Improved Piste Naming - Piste naming is now more accurate than ever across the globe.




Intricate analysis. One simple number.

Ski:IQ™ is the foundation of Carv - analysing data collected from 72 sensors to produce one simple - and accurate - score of your skiing technique.

In just a few years we have created the world’s most powerful technique database, with over 70 million turns and counting.

This winter, we have used that incredible resource to build an even more powerful Ski:IQ™ model. Our team of data scientists have refined and built new metrics in collaboration with world-class ski instructors from the PSIA, CSIA and Interski.

We have further improved the Ski:IQ™ metric weightings to ensure you receive the most accurate score and tips this season.



Balance, re-balanced

Finding balance on your skis can be hard, so we want to make your balance score as easy to understand as possible. Introducing our three new Balance metrics:

  • Start of turn - How well do you shift your balance onto the balls of your feet at the start of the turn?
  • End of turn - How well do you shift your weight backwards to a centred stance after the apex of the turn?
  • Topple - How accurately and smoothly do you shift pressure to the inside edge of your new outside ski in the first third of your turns?



We've turned around Rotary

This season, our Lead Data Scientist, Charlie, and his team have completely redesigned our Rotary metrics using a new statistical method. No matter your skiing ability, expect accurate rotary scoring of all your turns.

Introducing two new Rotary metrics, developed with top-level instructors:

  • Parallel Skis - How well do you rotate your skis together, keeping them parallel throughout the turn?
  • Rotary Smoothness - How smoothly can you rotate your skis throughout the turn?
