Just in time for ski season, Google has added a number of the most popular North American ski resorts to the desktop, Android and iPhone app versions of Google Maps.
The detailed maps, which show color-coded runs and lifts, are being marketed as the "go to" mountain guide for finding the best route down the hill.
Blue, green and black runs are displayed as solid color lines while ski lifts are detailed as dotted red lines.
Viewed on the desktop in conjunction with Street View, keen skiers can start to plan their vacations before they leave.
Supported resorts include Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley in California, Aspen Highlands in Colorado, the Deer Valley Resort in Utah, and Whistler Blackcomb in British Columbia. The full list can be found at the Google Maps blog at http://google-latlong.blogspot.fr/2013/02/ski-resorts-now-on-google-maps.html.
