The mobile app adapted to skiing areas

The ViaDirect information and wayfinding solution can now meet the needs of ski resorts. The first example is a mobile application for the Avoriaz skiing area.

The mobile application is adapted for pedestrians because they can’t use traditional solutions such as Smartphone GPS. Indeed these don’t display the pedestrian’s routes in winter and don’t consider stairs and lifts that are often used in ski resorts.

This first development in a sports complex underlines the ViaDirect capacity to meet the needs of public places, whatever the objectives and constraints are.

For 2 years the Avoriaz ski resort won the prize of the best ski area for families. Providing an additional service to holidaymakers by guiding them through many buildings, floors, shops, and activities is the main objective of these applications.

Android and iOS (Apple) apps are downloadable for free. Receptionists of tourist offices can help users. ViaDirect wanted to create a real wayfinding “compass” with an ergonomic and easy-to-use interface.

The mobile application is operational for the 2014-2015 season of the Avoriaz ski resort. It guides pedestrians while providing maximum services.

The skiing area wanted a multichannel solution in several steps: first, mobile apps and indoor and outdoor kiosks’ installation. The ViaDirect solution perfectly meets this strategic requirement.


The Avoriaz mobile application is revolutionizing ski resorts plans thanks to a 3D aerial view of the pedestrian area. An animated route can be displayed between the departure and arrival points. In summer 2015 an automatic GPS will be deployed in the 3D map. The information flows are from a back office that manages the entire map. The application uses the Avoriaz data to provide users with the latest information on each destination.

The user avoids differences in height or level by taking the lift to optimize its route. The aim is to facilitate access to stores and services in the most appropriate way.


The other standard features of ViaDirect are also deployed:

– Different types of available accommodations

– Equipment rental

– Stores

– Restaurants

– Activities

– Services: ATM, infirmary…

– Parking

– Direct access to the area map
