WOO Cares! WE'RE HERE TO HELP

As riders ourselves, we know how frustrating it is when gear gets in the way of a great session.

We’ve designed WOO to be as simple to use as possible, but in the chance that you need a hand getting things going, we’re here to help. Check out the documentation and feel free to shoot us a message about anything! Reach us at support@woosports.com

Snow - Freeski

A new way to play on the mountain...

What's the Game?

WOO is a new platform for skiers that makes every day on the mountain more fun. Catch air, go after achievements, and push your progression! Snow - Ski is a new game within the WOO Sports App for Skiers hitting jumps. When recording in Snow mode, the WOO can score your jumps based on trick difficulty, airtime, and landing quality.

The WOO utilizes artificial intelligence to detect your tricks. It’s the same technology Tesla uses to teach their cars to drive autonomously. This also means that as you ride, the WOO is always learning and getting smarter.

While there are two WOO Games (Snowboard & Ski) within the realm of WOO Snow, you'll notice that there is only one mode that covers both games. The WOO should be in Snow mode independent if you're riding Snowboard or on Skis. Your WOO is capable of picking you all your tricks if your riding Snowboard or on Skis, you can select if you rode on a Snowboard or on Skis when you upload your session!

Note:

the LED pattern on the WOO for this game is blinking Once, then Twice (1-2-1-2).
Snow - Snowboard requires a WOO 2.0 or WOO 3.0 sensor to log sessions.

WOO Position on the Ski-Boot

For this game, make sure the BUTTON on your WOO is always facing your UP while riding. This is needed for our trick detection (Left / Right) to properly work. Our trick detection will work otherwise, but we cannot guarantee results if the button on your WOO faced down during a session.

Every WOO comes with an adhesive mount that's used to attach the sensor to your board. For the Snow - Ski game, the sensor needs to be placed on the back of your Ski-Boot, above your Achilles near the top of the boot. While riding on skis, the WOO's orientation should always be BUTTON facing UP. For more details also check out the docs on Attaching the WOO Mount

WOO LED Blinking Modes

The LED-pattern on your WOO indicates which mode your WOO is in. You can check the WOO Mode by either recognizing the LED-patterns it's emitting, or connecting your WOO to your phone. Here's a quick list of the LED-patterns the WOO emits:

Mode: Kite - Big Air -> Blinking Once (1-0-1-0)
Mode: Kite - Freestyle -> Blinking Twice (2-0-2-0)
Mode: Wake (Cable & Boat) -> Blinking Three times (3-0-3-0)
Mode: Snow (Snowboard & Ski) -> Blinks Once, then Blinks Twice (1-2-1-2)

Note:

Want to change the mode of your WOO? Connect your WOO to your phone while the phone is in the sport (Snow / Kite / Wake) you want your WOO to change to. Once connected, you'll be prompted with a mode mismatch, press "WOO to {Mode}" to change the mode on your WOO. You will see the LED-pattern your WOO emits change.

How do the Scores get Calculated for Snow - Snowboard?

The score you will get for every trick consists of number of components:

ROTATION SCORE:

ranges from 0 - 350 points
Your score will largely depend on the number of rotations you do on 3 different axes and the complexity/difficulty of those movements. Generally, the more rotations you do, the higher you Rotation Score will be. Spin any direction and you'll get rewarded. Stomp a trick in the WOO Tricktionary and claim it!

You can check out the WOO Tricktionary, for a list of tricks the WOO can recognize when the trick is well-perfomed. The WOO Tricktionary for Snow - Snowboard can also be found in Settings when in the Snow part of the WOO Sports App.

Even if you do a trick that isn't yet in the WOO Tricktionary, you will still get rewarded with the correct Rotation Score for that trick. Because the WOO will pick up the rotation you perform, you will still get a valid Rotation Score, it's just the trick-label that won't be visible yet. Instead, it will simply say "Trick" in your Session's Jump Table.

AIRTIME SCORE:

ranges from 0 - 300 points
Another important factor in the scoring process is your airtime - you will always receive a bonus for going bigger! If you are in the air for longer than 2.5 seconds you will no longer receive a bonus, but it is very unlikely that any riders will be in the air for that long. After 2.5 seconds score is based entirely on rotation and landing quality.

LANDING SCORE:

ranges from 0 - 50 points
Your score will partly be based on how well you land and will be assigned a category: Crash, Sketchy, Good, or Stomped. Not only does the device measure the g-force of the landing, but it also assesses how well you ride away from the trick. You can see an indication how the angles used for stamping your trick with a Crashed, Sketcky, Good, or Stomped label.

Going to the Snow - Ski Game in the WOO Sports App

From the Login Screen, where you can select which sport you would like to go into, select the WOO Snow icon. Within WOO Snow, both Snow - Snowboard and Snow - Ski games can be played.

Once logged into a sport, you gain access to the entire WOO Community through the App. Check out the different sections in the app:

· Activity
· Leaderboards
· My WOO
· Explore
· Profile

Select that You're a Skier

The first time you log into WOO Snow, the app will ask you if you're primarily a Snowboard or a Skier. Here, select that you're a Skier. Remember to place the WOO on the back of your ski-boot with the power button facing up.

Note:

When you confirm you're primarily a skier, your Stance in Edit Profile will say 'Skier'.

Game F.A.Q.

Q: How do I record in Snow - Ski mode?
A: Switching to Snow mode requires you to log into the Snow section of the app. Once you connect your WOO to your phone, if it has previously been in Kite / Wake mode it will prompt you to either switch modes or return to Kite / Wake. For more details about Switching Modes on you WOO, check out the Sensor ('WOO') documentation.

For WOO 3.0 units, changing the WOO to Snow mode works with a simple prompt.
For WOO 2.0 units, changing the WOO to Snow mode requires a firmware update.

Q: Why isn't the WOO registering my tricks?
A: Similarly to other freestyle games in the World of WOO, Snow mode is designed to detect tricks if they are done correctly according to the professional riders who trained them. We know not everybody is doing perfect tricks so we built a margin of lenience around each trick which will either grow or shrink based on user feedback, but we cannot make trick detection too lenient otherwise there will be too much overlap between tricks!

The WOO is designed to be a coach that helps you reach proper execution. If you are doing a trick but it isn't showing up, chances are there is something off with your technique so look up videos of some pros doing the same trick and tweak your form and style to get it to register! Once the WOO detects your tricks you can confidently claim proficiency in that trick. Even if the trick is not registered you will still receive a points score.
