DENVER (AP) — Skiers and snowboarders accustomed to tracking how many runs they've done will soon have access to a smartphone app to track their jumps and spins too.

Vail Resorts Inc.'s EpicMix application changed the industry in 2010 by using radio-frequency ID tags in lift tickets and passes to communicate with scanners on lifts to tally riders' vertical feet and runs.

Now the company Active Network has developed a smartphone app to count a skier or snowboarder's jumps, spins and other hill stats, like average hang time. It works with the help of a motion sensor made by Golden, Colo.-based Mosoro that is based on Bluetooth LE technology. The app will likely come out early next year. The app will probably be free, while the sensor is around $100.
