European Snow on Google Maps

So far it has been a bad winter for European ski resorts. Mild and dry weather mean resorts have very little skiing available. The good news is that snow has begun to fall in some of the most northern parts of Europe.

In Denmark television station TV2 are celebrating the first snow of the winter with a Google Map of readers' snow photos. The station plans to collect readers' photos and add them to the map throughout the winter.

Snow in Europe also means that Ben Marsh's #UKSnow Map has sprung back into life. #UKSnow maps Twitter mentions of snow in the UK.

Over the last couple of days the map has been showing snow around Edinburgh and Glasgow in Scotland. Today there only seems to be a little snow falling in the far north of the country.
