Colo. (KRDO) -- Don't like skiing alone? Frustrated by the usual I-70 hassle? Looking for an après ski crew? There's an app for that.
SkiBuds is a free app built by Stephen Phillips of Frisco, Colorado, whose stated mission is to make the skiing experience more enjoyable.
It's a social networking app that caters to skiers and boarders, enabling them to meet up on the mountain or coordinate carpools from 16 metropolitan areas -- including Colorado Springs and Denver.
Within the app, users can filter by departure city, ski pass and skiing ability to fit their individual needs.
Once you've established a game plan in one of the many public chat channels, users can open a private message to nail out the details.
Currently, the app features dozens of ski areas in the United States and Canada, but Phillips says he's adding more all the time.
