Q: Will these files only work on my smartphone, or can I put it on my GPS device too?
A: Any device, or app, that can read a .GPX file, which is most gps devices and apps.
Q: What if I buy this and I don't like it?
A: I'll give you a full refund, with one question asked...why you didn't like it.
Q: Are the route lines perfectly exact?
A: No. All gps devices have different ranges of accuracy, but it is as accurate as possible. Also, skin tracks change on a micro level. These lines are as accurate as possible, but it does not replace your sound judgement and mountain sense. This sport is dangerous!
Q: Why don't you just make this an app?
A: I found the Gaia app is the best smartphone GPS on the market, and many people use it already. I wanted to harness all the benefits of this powerful app, and make it simple for you to use this detailed information in the field.
Q: Can I share the file with my friends?
A: Please do not. The more people that purchase the app, the more we can support the Jenny Lake Search and Rescue team, and future informational products that will help you ski and ride at the next level. Please share this page link, not the file.
Q: Where do I purchase Gaia GPS app?
A: search Gaia GPS in any (iphone and android) store. It costs $20, but it's totally worth it.
Q: How can I become a ninja with Gaia app and backcountry navigation?
A: This 38 minute tutorial is a great place to start. It covers how to use Google Earth and Gaia to plan a route. You will learn the very skills I used to create the digital ski atlas. First 5 minutes are free, and you will learn good stuff.
Q: How do I get the route lines and waypoints from my email to my app?
A: On your phone's email app, push and hold the attachment icon. A list of apps will pop up, scroll over to your GPS app, click "open in". If you have Gaia, all files will automatically load in one folder. In Gaia, tap top left menu icon (3 stacked horizontal lines), tap Folders, tap Grand Teton Skiing, tap Show on Map.
Q: What if I want to donate more than 50% to the Jenny Lake Rangers Search and Rescue?
A: 100% of any amount over $27.77 will be donated to them.
