Ski Resorts and Snow Reports in Google Earth

Ski Resorts and Snow Reports in Google EarthThe guys who did vlogmap.org, a Google Earth map showing videos around the world, have now done a web site for ski/snowboarding video blogs. The web site is at ridertech.com, and includes maps of North American ski and snowboarding resorts and snow reports for viewing in GE. I'm not sure if they plan to do other countries as well.

You can download the ski/snowboarding resorts , and they have included nice details about each resort including vertical drop, number of runs, number of lifts, etc. Just click on the resort's placemark and you'll see these details in the description. Also, a link to the web site for each resort is included. They also have included a network link for showing current snow weather reports which come from The Weather Channel.

If you're thinking about skiing in the US, this web site is the best way to get yourself informed if you want to use Google Earth. And, they are responsive to suggestions for improvement. Now, hopefully someone will do the rest of the skiing world. My hat's off to the vlog guys!

    Thanks again Frank for all your insight and inspiration. The custom icons, map overlays and extra resort cams came directly from your feedback.

    We plan to start mapping the resorts in Europe, Australia and New Zealand after finishing the Northeastern and Midwestern US.

    I have covered 99% of all Canadas ski areas, this includes hills that are closed but they are easily noticed.

    Go to Skiingbc.info and Click Mountain Info to get the Google Earth file

    Thanks a TON for this Google Earth plug-in and thanks for sharing it. This is exactly what I needed to decide which resort to hit up without having to study all the different websites for each one! I'm sure there are some improvements you can add for informational purposes but this is nice and simple, PERFECT!
