Google Adds Ski Slopes to their Google Maps App

Thursday, February 7th, 2013

“Let’s hit the slopes brah!”  Probably a phrase you’ve never heard, nor ever said, but with Google’s new Ski Slopes Map App, you can check out nearby ski slopes and get your shredder on.

Google Maps app, available for free on Android devices and iPhone,  now includes 38 new maps of ski runs and lifts from some of the most popular ski resorts in the United States and Canada.

The way it works is that the app marks green, blue and black runs — the colors ski resorts use to indicate a slope’s difficulty — which appear on the screen as solid colored lines.  If you are looking for ski lifts, they are registered as dotted lines.  The app is excellent if you are looking to start with the slope that best suits your needs, or if you end up getting lost in the snow.  If you are  a skiing aficionado, this app is perfect for you.
