When do I need to pause recording?
You should pause recording when you're taking a decent-length break as it will stop using the phone's GPS and save you some battery life. We'd also recommend pausing if you're taking any shuttles at the resort, because Slopes may mistake that for a lift or a run .
Slopes will automatically detect lifts so you don't need to pause every time you hop on one. Unless you're taking a long break, just leave it recording and Slopes will do its thing.
