Nothing could be finer than to plan your ski trip using a virtual map where you zoom into all major landmarks. Ski.com offers the first of its kind. Hotelmarketing.com reports on Ski.com's new 3D ski resort maps, giving a thorough report. The gist is this:
"Travelers who wish to virtually explore ski towns such as Aspen, Snowmass, Vail and Breckenridge are able to view interactive maps featuring 3D views of the town and the mountain. With the click of the mouse, the map allows the user to rotate, zoom in and out and tilt the view down to street level revealing topographical details including runs, lifts and accommodations available. Travelers can then quickly and easily identify where each property is located in relation to the things that matter most to them, whether it is the convenience of a ski in and out location or near shopping."
They only have 9 maps live, but they are working on others. Play around and send them your feedback.
