    Abstract

    This research explores the usability of a GPS data-logging device designed for team-based sports as a mechanism for collecting data on snowsport participants’ temporal and spatial use of alpine resorts. Usability for participants was high, however there are a few issues for the research that were challenging, but the quality and quantity of data obtained outweighs any limitations identified. Thus the researchers believe that GPS Spi Elite is a useful resource for tracking snowsport participants’ temporal and spatial use of alpine resorts
