Have you ever wondered how steep you favorite ski area is, and how it compares to other areas?
If so, you should really go to 3DSkiMaps.com, where you can find color coded maps that indicate the steepness of a variety of ski areas. Pretty cool!
Another site that provides a great perspective on ski areas is Ski.com. There are 3D maps of 19 resorts, and they give you a real feel for the lay of the land — much better than a one dimensional map.
