Your favorite resorts now available on Google Maps

Lake Louise AB Canada Ski

You may not use your local resorts trail guides to much because you know the mountain like the back of your hand. But if you’re headed to a new, unkown zone and you don’t have a local to show you around then all you have to do is whip out your smartphone, pop open your Google Maps app and you’re ready to go.

You’ll never look like a kook again while trying to figure out how to fold the damn map back into your pocket. Instead, the cute girl on the lift will simply think you’re addicted to your smartphone, which seems a bit better to us. Plus, the new feature has street view for a select few resorts including Whistler, Breck, Squaw and more…

Check out the new Google Maps feature on Google’s blog and scope out the available resorts.
