Get into the '06 ski season with Google Maps mashups!

The 2006 ski and snowboarding season is already upon us in the northern hemisphere! Here are two new Google Maps mashups that will help you know when you can hit the slopes in your area as well as stay current on snow conditions throughout the year!

SkiBonk.com has conditions, lifts/runs open and resort cams - SkiBonk.com is an extension of the popular WeatherBonk.com Google Maps weather mashup. SkiBonk takes data for resorts worldwide and plots them on a Google Map for you. Detailed weather, ski conditions, resort webcams and details about the number of runs/lifts that are open are all included in this full featured mashup. As you search for worldwide resorts you can also filter your map-based search by only resorts which are open.


Ridertech.com helps you locate ski/snowboard resorts - Here is a new Google Map to help you locate ski and snowboard resorts throughout the U.S. and Canada. The map can be viewed in Google Maps as well as Google Earth. There are new enhancements planned for this map and you can keep up with them on the Ridertech video blog.
