Tired of sitting on top of cliff bands with no rope in Cham? Or what about taking the wrong turn during a ski tour to Mont Blanc? Or maybe Ze best piste in Zermatt is all that you want.
Whatever the case may be, FATMAP’s interactive, 3-D digital maps seek to inform. “Know more, do more” is the company’s motto and by the looks of the videos below, there has never been a more detailed, all encompassing ski map application.
FATMAP has dropped into a market that has been waiting to be explored. Although these maps will undoubtedly be the source of local ire around ski towns, the move towards accessible, personal-use 3-D maps is inevitable. Just as trail maps revolutionized the inbounds terrain at resorts across the world, it seems that FATMAP will add to the inbounds experience as well the off-piste runs as well. In addition to accurate 3-D portrayals of mountain resorts and the surrounding backcountry, FATMAPS will also provide mapped avalanche and crevasse zones.
“FATMAP is the perfect solution to mountain navigation both on and off-piste. Being able to easily identify your location and risk zones faster than has been traditionally possible means skiers will be able to head out and stay safe with confidence.”– Guy Willet, International Mountain Guide
“The blend of cutting edge technology and social integration has been proven in other sports but not yet skiing. There’s nothing quite like it out there at the moment. FATMAP has come at the right time.”– Alastair Scott, One of the UK’s Top Mobile Experts
