Google Maps Hits the Slopes While There's Still Snow
In case you missed it we’re in the middle of the winter, and pretty much everyone has been hit with the snow—especially those in the northeast. It’s definitely time to take a break from the shoveling and plowing, and make your way onto the slopes. Skiing down the mountain is way better than playing with the snow in your driveway, and now Google is even here to help you find your way.
Adding to their mapping empire, Google just recently revealed that they’ve got the scoop on a whole bunch of ski resorts. Their latest addition boosts their offerings by another 38, as they add to their collection of ski resorts and mountains across the United States and Canada. Different lines indicate lifts, trails, difficulty, and even the path to the best hot toddy by the fire. Okay—maybe not that last part, but we wouldn’t be surprised if that was buried in there somewhere.
Things are available for both Android and iOS operating systems, so no matter your preferred flavor of mobile technology they’ve got you covered. They’ve even got some Street View options depending on where you are. You can check out their full offerings right over on their blog, but if you’re headed to Big Sky Resort, Breckenridge Ski Resort, Stowe Mountain Resort, or Whistler Blackcomb—they’ve got you covered.
