Google Maps is on a roll. After completing its trek across the Grand Canyon last week, the world’s best map service added 38 additional ski resorts to its mapped areas. Google kicked off this off in November when they mapped about 90 resorts around the world. The newly added maps are mostly located in the United States, and can be viewed online as well as in its apps for Android and iPhone. If you love the slopes like I do, you know that adding ski resorts like Squaw Valley, Big Sky and Whistler Blackcomb is a big deal. If you haven’t used Google Maps to check out resorts before, it’s really simple to navigate. Ski runs are marked in blue, green and black lines show how tough the terrain is, and lifts are marked as red dotted lines. As always, Google is never satisfied, and promised that “more ski resort maps [are] on the way.” Now, if you’ll excuse me, there’s a mountain… or 38… calling my name.
