Ski touring addons Switzerland

In Switzerland some new plugins would be helpful for skitouring:

- skitourenguru.ch

- official routes from the Swiss Alpine Club (SAC)

- Wild protection areas


Outdooratlas (http://www.corridor5.ch/company/static/en/outdooratlas.html) has them all already. It's just not as useful as Locus.

Dear Beno,

thank you for idea, I did quick check the skitourenguru.ch site and it seems that it's possible to download track as GPX files and then import it into Locus. However thank you for an idea for the new content.

Best regards

Hi

Thanks for the hint (I did not know)! That already would replace part of the ski touring routes from SAC.

However, Skitourenguru has regularily updated live data (snowheight, avalanche risk etc.) attached to their tracks. This data is not present in the downloadable gpx.

Hi,

the data you talked about (snowheight, avalanche risk) - is it possible to download them on Skitourenguru? I'd like to only check the format they use.

BTW: I remark the Skitourenguru site because we'd like to provide more content for our users next year and it seems that it could be interesting source.

Thank you

Petr

Welcome :-) Just wanted to add that I meant the android app outdooratlas (http://www.corridor5.ch/com...), not outdooractive.

Here is their announcement (EN) about their skitourenguru.ch plugin: http://www.corridor5.ch/company/static/en/plugin-skitourenguru.html
