This is a nice starting list. I would add to it, from my Android phone's "Activities" folder:

- Snow-Forecast: essential when planning your ski days
- Strava, Ride with GPS, MapMyRide: good for your biking addiction
- Geo Tracker: good all around tracking app for various activities
- Altimeter and GPS Status: for quick altitude check, although they can do more than that
- Earth, by Google: exploring the Earth in 3D
