Google Maps Now Shows Ski Resorts With Lifts and Runs on Android and iOS

ski resorts google maps

As you arrive at your next winter vacation destination with your skis or snowboard packed, think about leaving room in a pocket for your smartphone because Google just announced that they have full maps of 38 of the most popular ski resorts in the country in Google Maps.

The new maps include lift and run guides, that feature color coded solid bars for black, blue, and green runs, plus red dotted lines so you can pin point your closest lift.

These are already available on your Android device or iPhone. 

Here is the entire list of ski resorts in Maps:

    Here’s my pet peeve: people writing on the internet (you know, the global network), in English (you know, the language used frequently virtually everywhere), and acting as if we all live in the USA. Such as writing “the country”, as if there were no other countries.

    I thought that was a cracked screen app at first glance.

    Wow, I could have used this 2 weeks ago in New Mexico. What will they think of next?

  • S2556

    Awesome update!

  • snowblind64

    I noticed this about a month ago when I was at Squaw Valley. Pretty awesome feature.

      Wait….a dedicated app is better than a general one? Hold the phone!

    How do you get the colored runs like in the top photo. Vail isn’t showing those.

  • Dash Speeds

    Sooooo the biggest mountains in the east (Sunday River, Sugarloaf, Killington) don’t fit on that list? But Granite Gorge and Attitash do?

    • snowblind64

      A lot of big ones in the west are missing too. They have Sierra at Tahoe but not the much larger Northstar at Tahoe (owned by the same company). No Kirkwood either. It’s a good start though.

    nice photo opp for the GNex

    Alpine Meadows is in CA, not CO.
    Pretty cool addition to maps!

    I guess it’s nice to have but don’t see myself using it a lot. I know my mountains pretty well. :) I’ll not get lost.

      Pulse they give out maps when tickets are bought. So does maps do any work out type tracking?

    Need to add Keystone, CO soon.

  • droidftw

    Awesome, they have Mammoth. I was using the Ski tracking app but this seems much better.

    • http://twitter.com/starnovsky Stan Tarnovsky

      Mammoth has an official app with lift and trail statuses and weather. I think it’s more useful.

      • droidftw

        It was more of a tracking app. It gave me max speed, max altitude, max jump height, etc.

        • http://twitter.com/starnovsky Stan Tarnovsky

          I don’t think Google Maps does it. It’s just a map.

    Um…Northstar? There’s no way that’s not in the top 38. Either way, it’s great to see this! They’ll probably have all of them by next season! :)

  • mustbepbs

    How could Apple possibly hope to catch up to Google Maps?

  • Geoff Johnson

    Seriously? They have Granite Gorge but not Cannon or Waterville?

    • Paul

      No Killington or Sunday River either.

    Who cares about iOS?

    • ERIC REED

      I read this site daily, and use an iPhone, so we are out here!!

    • john

      The Google maps on iOS is better than on Android, I wish they’d update it

  • Robert Pile

    Kellex, how is Bachelor on that list but not Hood/Meadows? Not that I’m blaming you, but as a fellow Oregonian I would hope for some shared offense ;)

    • BestonMars

      I was just thinking the same thing! I know Meadows like the back of my hand at this point, but it would still be nice to have.
