Common questions about the Carv membership
When does the membership start?
After buying Carv you'll receive an activation code. You can activate your Carv any time within 100 days (after which time it will automatically start).
Your membership runs for a full 365 days, and is not constrained by the ski season.
What happens if I cancel?
You can cancel any time and keep using Carv until your next renewal date. If you do not renew you will still be able to track your Ski:IQ, run stats, ability levels and see historic data.
The coaching content (tips, metrics, real-time audio feedback, training) and leaderboard will become dormant until you reactivate your membership.
When is Carv updated?
We spend all year looking at what helped our members improve the most over the previous winters.
We use this to develop a major new update for our members at the start of each winter. From then, we release regular training content and member events throughout the season.
1. Carv Captures your skiing data
The Carv device captures precise pressure and motion data as you ski. It is then sent to your phone using bluetooth.
Your ski data is then compared against professional benchmarks (Level 3/4 ski instructors) to assess your technique.
2. Get feedback on your technique
This data is then translated into 13 powerful metrics that fit into 4 key categories:
- Balance (forward/back lean)
- Edging (edge angle, similarity and more)
- Rotation (rotary smoothness and similarity)
- Pressure (outside/inside ski, smoothness and more).
So you'll be able to analyse your technique and find out where you need to focus next.
3. Improve in days not months
You'll get personalised tips, real-time coaching and drills, developed with the best skiers and instructors like 2x Olympic Gold Medalist Ted Ligety.
The fast feedback loop from objective data, to coaching and back means you'll ski more efficiently and for longer, have better control and confidence, take on more challenging terrain and push your limits.
Yes, Carv is the same thickness as a boot warmer at 3mm. It will fit in almost all ski boots including stock boots, custom moulded boots and boots with custom insoles. We offer a boot-fit guarantee so you can find the perfect match with Carv.
Yes. Carv goes under the liner - on top of the boot board. This means that heel lifts, custom insoles (e.g. Surefoot), and boot warmers are not affected and are compatible with Carv. You can use them both at the same time.
99% of our customers are happy with their Carv fit - even pros like 2x Gold Olympic Champion, Ted Ligety, ski with Carv without boot mods. Because it fits under the liner, there is padding to accommodate the 3mm volume. If you do have a pinch, a boot fitter can rectify issues. If not, you are protected by our boot fit guarantee.
Carv is compatible with any iPhone that has a minimum of iOS 15 installed, though we recommend using the most up-to-date version of iOS
Carv requires a minimum of Android 8.0 to run, and your phone must support Bluetooth 4.2.
Some Android devices are not compatible with Carv, please click here to read more about phone compatibility

- Events, technique webinars and more
We're in it together to keep you improving!

- Choose your preferred number of days (6-9).
- After purchase, you'll get an activation code giving you year-round access to Carv's off-snow training content.
- Each on-snow 'day' is counted when you start recording your skiing with Carv.
- Your on-snow days can be used one at a time and do not have to be used consecutively, but must be used within 365 days from purchase.
- Want more days? You can easily add more days or upgrade your pass by contacting Customer Success
You can upgrade, downgrade, or cancel your Carv membership at any time through the Carv app.
If you cancel your membership, you will get full access for the duration of your membership. When your membership ends, you will no longer be able to access:
- Your Carv metric scores for each run.
- Audio tips and turn-by-turn feedback.
- Carv training modes: Free Ski, Training, Challenges and Monitor modes.
- Off-snow training: In-app training videos and Carv live talks.
You will still be able to access basic run tracking (e.g. speed, distance), your Carv metric scores captured when your membership was active, and your Ski:IQ™ score on each run.
You can return your Carv for a full refund (device and membership cost) by February 1st.
Carv is designed to improve your form on all terrain.
Carv will automatically detect the difficulty and snow type that your skiing on - taking into account steepness and terrain variability (bumps, crud, powder). Carv will adapt your score based on the terrain so you're always rewarded for keeping your form when things get dicey.
Carv's coaching is focussed on developing an efficient, controlled and stylish technique. It will push you to make more stable, rounded and exciting turns. While Carv is not designed to coach you in off piste (yet), the improvements it will make in your fundamental technique will certainly iron out issues so when you do get the perfect pow conditions of the season - you are focussed on your line not your technique.
- Carv works with regular headphones, Airpods and any other bluetooth headphones. See our recommendations here.
- Almost all helmets work with in-ear headphones, so you don't need to make adjustments to your current helmet
- If you do not want to ski with headphones, you can still improve with text-based tips, scores and drills.
