If you’re a big ski fan, there’s probably nowhere you’d rather be than on one of the incredible ski-slopes around the world. Unfortunately, unless you’re a die-hard fan or a professional skier, it’s highly likely that most of your life will be spent away from these slopes. This excitement will be condensed into those much-anticipated ski holidays you take throughout the year. So, what can you do when you’re away from the slopes and running around during your busy day? Well here are some of the ways you can enjoy keeping up with skiing and other sports from your smartphone no matter where you are or what time of day it is.
Place a bet
Whilst very few things can really replicate the excitement of playing or practicing your favourite sport yourself, there is an alternative way you can add a bit of adrenaline into being a spectator. By betting on the outcome of a sport, you’re not just cheering on a certain athlete or team because you want to see them win. You’re also cheering them on because you yourself will also be a winner if they end up winning as well. Instead of having to go to the bookmakers to put on a bet, many companies will now allow you to pick from the odds listed online via your smartphone.
For example, the website will offer you all of the latest odds on a wide range of different sports. All you need to do is set up an account, deposit some money and then you can place a bet no matter where you are in the world and what you’re doing. It only takes a couple of minutes to place a bet, and you’ll receive any winnings back into your account almost instantly.
Get score updates
No matter what sport you enjoy, that can keep you up to date with the latest happenings in that sport. If it’s skiing you’re after, there are many apps which can update you with interviews with the big stars before the races as well as the latest results of any ongoing events whilst they’re happening across the world. For other sports like soccer, you can even set your phone to notify you when your favourite team’s game kicks off, or if they score or concede a goal.
Plan your next big trip away
If you can’t be at the ski slopes, then why not spend your spare time getting ready for the next time you can take a break. There are lots of different apps to help you plan your next adventure. You can search for hotels, book flights and even buy that all-important travel insurance from your phone. If you download your airline’s app, it’s highly likely you’ll even be able to check-in to your flight from your phone and use your smartphone as when the big day comes.
There you are, lots of activities to keep you occupied until you can hit the slopes again.
