Nordic Pulse was born out of a desire to make grooming reports easier to find for skiers and to help clubs share their trail conditions. Julien Locke (SLNC website developer and former NST athlete) believed strongly that deciding where and when to ski should be a quick, easy, and fun experience. After years of wading through outdated websites, online spreadsheets, snow phones, user-reported blogs, and the like, it was time to create a new platform.
Nordic Pulses’ objective is to make grooming reporting easier for ski areas. Grooming teams work long nights preparing the corduroy for the coming day’s skiers, and the last thing the groomers want to do at the end of a long shift is to fiddle around with logging in to a website or updating a spreadsheet with cold fingers.
With Nordic Pulse, grooming teams simply enable the in-app GPS tracker while they groom and the app syncs the data to our server every few seconds. With both AutoSync and offline storage capacity, Nordic Pulse is optimized to work in a variety of scenarios such as sending real-time data through cellular data, bulk uploading whenever the snowcat passes through the stadium and briefly connects to the club’s wifi connection, or operating fully offline and out of service.
We are excited to offer this modern and sophisticated grooming reporting program to our website to provide our membership and visitors a quick reference tool for the latest groomed trails. Tell us what you think. We are excited to get some customer feedback.
