Just like Google's update last month, Google has added an additional 100 ski resort maps to Google Maps. These trail maps can help ski and snowboard enthusiasts prepare for a trip to the mountain and scout the terrain and ways down the mountain before heading off to some distant ski resort.

The trails are represented by green, blue, and black lines, with the color corresponding to the difficulty ratings traditionally used by ski resorts. Lifts are represented by dotted red lines.

This latest update includes Mt. Hood Meadows, Timberline Lodge, and Hunter Mountain. All 100 of the newly added resort maps are for mountains in the United States and Canada. Europe has been largely left out of these updates, aside from when ski resort maps were first introduced. Google Maps has maps for about 225 different resorts around the world.
