Street View for Google Maps is a wonderfully fun addition to the mapping services. Instead of looking at some bland map, you can zoom down and check out exactly what you’re looking for. Or you can be a peeper and just view whatever was going on when Google drove down your ex’s street. Either way, you get a better experience. Well the masterminds at Google outfitted a snowmobile with a 360° camera and took to a few ski slopes to bring the snow home to you!
The modded vehicle scanned in images of Breckenridge Ski Resort in Colorado, Squaw Valley in upstate California and Whistler Blackcomb in America’s cap, Canada. No other resorts have been mentioned yet but one can only believe more will be added as time goes on. As you can see, the images are gorgeous and makes me want to stay at home even more. Yep, I have no need to go skiing now thanks to Google! Hit the jump to see some more photos of the Slope View as well as Google’s video of it in action.
