What do I do if a friend isn't showing up?

Can't see each other? Here's a few things to check:

Check internet connection

The most common issue is that the people not showing up have connection issues. Slopes' location sharing requires an internet connection to work, and that isn't a guaranteed thing at all ski resorts.

Recording on iPhone

To check the location sharing screen on iOS, tap the ^ on the recording screen to see options, then tap Location Sharing. You'll see an error message there if the phone can't get online.

Recording on Apple Watch

The location sharing screen (swipe to the left once) will show a red "Connection Issue" alert.

Make sure everyone is friends with each other

Is everyone friends with each other? You can check who's on your friends list on the Friends tab in the app.

Check that everyone has enabled location sharing

Does everyone have location sharing turned on? 

Recording on iPhone: 

  • Tap the ^ on the recording screen to expand the menu
  • Tap on Location Sharing
  • If it says "Off", tap on With Friends Nearby to enable it

Recording on Apple Watch:

  • Swipe to the left from the main recording screen
  • Scroll down a bit
  • Under Share Location toggle With Friends Nearby to on
