The newest must-have for the tram line.

iPhones came in pretty handy after last winter’s avalanches, allowing skiers to check news updates and lift status while still riding the START bus to the resort.

Now a couple of resort employees, Dan and Ingrid Miller, have developed an iPhone application specifically for Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.

Their JH Tapped allows users to locate themselves and their friends on the resort’s trail map, keep track of vertical feet skied or snowboarded, and get real-time updates on lift status, snow conditions and weather. The app also has a resort directory with phone numbers and information on lessons, statistics and history.

The app is free for now; a forthcoming enhanced version will offer features such as a compass and Facebook interface, and presumably cost a few bucks.
