[R2104R, Les Orres] has announced the launch of its own smartphone application, which puts the entire resort at your fingertips.

This application is the result of close collaboration between the resort's managers and the App'Snow company, who designed the product. The directors wanted to bring the resort into the 21st century and keep up with other French ski destinations who had already created their own application.

Emilie Scribot, director of Les Orres' tourism office told OnTheSnow: "We are proud to be a family-friendly and a very sporty resort, but at the same time, we are very much into new technologies. When the opportunity came along to create a fun product that could help our visitors, we enthusiastically seized the opportunity."

The application allows users to situate themselves on the pistes, to find the nearest facilities, and to have real-time information on lift queues to optimise their time on the slopes. Traffic information is also available with the application, to help drivers safely get to and from Les Orres.

The application is available for iPhones through the iTunes store. Other smartphones can obtain it at http://m.lesorres.fr/

At present, the application is only available in French, but Les Orres hopes to release an English version in the near future.
