Can Slopes import my data from other apps or devices?
Along with being able to use Slopes to record, you can import data from other devices and apps. Slopes supports the common GPX file-format, and some app-specific formats too.
How to import a file
- Open the Logbook and tap on the three dots in the top right hand corner of the screen
- Tap on Import from file
- Select the file that you would like to import - you can also long press to select and import multiple files at the same time.
How to import files in bulk
If you have a lot of files to import, you may find it easier to use a computer to get them into Slopes.
Importing from Garmin Connect
If you record your days skiing and snowboarding with a Garmin watch then you can enable Slopes's integration with Garmin to get that data added to your Logbook. Once set up, not only will future recordings automatically sync to Slopes, but after completing the one-time authorization in your Slopes account, we've made sure the last 5 years of your Garmin snow history will be imported (ignoring any duplicates of data already in Slopes). Note that if you don't already have one, you will need to set up a Slopes account for the integration to work.
Here's how to enable the Slopes x Garmin integration:
- Go to the Account tab
- Tap on Integrations under the Settings section
- Tap on Import from Garmin → Connect
- You'll then be taken to a web page to sign into your Garmin account

Importing from Snoww
Snoww lets you export to GPX, which Slopes can import.
Importing from Strava
This help article from Strava explains in detail how to export your data.
Importing from Trace / Alpine Replay
Trace can export GPX via their web interface. Head to http://snow.traceup.com/settings/gpx , log in, and then you can pick which days to export.
We have been made aware that Trace's website is no longer accessible.
GPX Import Requirements
The file needs to have the following data:
Data accuracy is improved if the file also contains vdop and hdop (vertical and horizontal accuracy) data. Without this, you may see inaccuracies such as unrealistically high speeds.
