If you’re an avid snowboarder or skier, you want to get the most out of your lift ticket and go down as many runs as possible. But sometimes, you go down the wrong run or up the wrong lift and you get lost. You then spend the next several minutes debating with your friend or partner that he or she doesn’t know where they are going. I have seen it a hundred times.

But with the new GPS device from Satski, you will never get lost. This revolutionary touch screen device called Multi-Sports GPS fits in the palm of your hand and gives you interactive ski maps from over a thousand resorts all around the world.

The interactive maps provides you with detailed information on all runs, lifts and other amenities around the ski area, and it’s all in ‘real-time.’

Imagine all the minutes you can save by not stopping on the side of a run, taking off your gloves, opening your jacket and reaching for the ski map to decide where to go next. Instead, you have the entire mountain in the palm of your hand.

Statistical information such as speed, distance covered, altitude, ascents and descents is stored and reviewable.

The device also displays your current location and can also calculate the shortest route to a particular restaurant, just in time to enjoy hot chocolate with friends. Emergency and resort information including phone numbers for rescue services and other resort facilities are also available.

The device also provides the same interactive maps and statistical information for other outdoor sports such as hiking, mountain biking and cycling. The Multi-Sports GPS is available at
