If you like snowboarding down the slopes like I do, Google has you covered. Today, they have added an additional 38 ski resorts with detailed trail maps to Google Maps. The newly added resort maps include important details such as the difficulty level of the runs.
Ski resort maps were originally added into the Maps product back in November 2012. At that time, Google added about 90 ski resorts into its Maps product. The update today brings that number up by about 40 percent and mainly focuses on US-based ski resorts, though a few Canadian mountains were thrown in for good measure.
The maps depict trails as either green, blue, or black lines. The colors correspond to the traditional colors associated with the different difficulties of runs. The all-important lifts are depicted as dotted red lines. The new list of ski resorts can be found on Google's Blog post.
