The updated Slopes: Ski & Snowboard app, version 2022.17 brings support for the Apple Watch Ultra Action button, auto water lock, Siri improvement, and bug fixes. Here are the complete release notes:

Improvements to the Siri workout start on Watch.
Fixed another crash related to leaving Slopes recording while taking a long break.
For iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro users, the app also supports Live Activities on iOS 16 Lock Screen and Dynamic Island so users can track their progress in real-time without taking their gloves off.
Apple Fitness+ also offers ski workouts so subscribers with Apple Watch Ultra can train their bodies and minds for the snow season. The tech company recently debuted the new Oceanic+ app on Apple Watch Ultra for recreational divers.
Slopes app is available on App Store with in-app subscriptions starting from $3.99. It is compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple Watch, and Mac with Apple Silicon and requires iOS 14.0 or later, and macOS 11.0 respectively.
