Trail Info - Length & Vertical

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

A while back I found a website that had information on the length and vertical drop for every ski run at nearly every mountain. Of course, I didn't bookmark it.

 

Does anyone know where I can find this info?

That was the one. Thanks.

 

I guess it doesn't have trail length, just vertical. Cool site either way.

If you really want length for any trail, check out Hillmap.  Once you figure out how to create a Path, can get not only length but also a sense of pitch for anywhere that has Google Earth data.  I learned about it recently.  Don't know if that's a good thing or not from a time on computer standpoint. :rolleyes

Thanks for your interest!

 

I'm the maker of the jollyturns.com web site and iPhone app. It seems hard to do with so many powder days hitting us in Tahoe recently, but I'll try to find some time to add the length of the ski runs onto the web site, and in the mobile app as well.

 

Speaking of which, please check out the iPhone ski app in case you didn't. It has the same detailed ski resort information you see on the web site. In addition it shows your location and your friends' location on the resort's map(s), lets you meet with them, and keeps track of your ski statistics. We cover pretty much all the downhill ski resorts in the world, about 2600 of them.

 

Enjoy your turns!

Very cool site you have. I use it to scope out potential ski trips. While not perfect, seeing all the runs and their verticals (and maybe length), and comparing it to the trail maps, gives me a good feel of a mountain without actually having been there yet. And it's fun to compare trail stats across the mountains I've been to.

I've built the web site as a companion to the mobile app, but it's useful on its own as it is. At some point in the near future the web site will contain your own ski statistics (collected by the mobile app), so you can see the resorts you've skied, which runs you took etc.

These past few weeks have been a slow part of the ski season, with no snow falling on the ground, at least here in Tahoe.

 

Which gave me an opportunity to work on a web site upgrade. I've added the length of the ski runs at all the resorts in the world. Based on these, the web site shows a lot more information, so you can scope out the resorts based on various criteria:

 

- base and top elevations of the resort

- number of lifts

- vertical rise of a lifts

- number of ski runs

- length and vertical of ski runs

- total length of all the ski runs

 

Tony, please let me know if you'd like to see other information.

 

Also don't forget to download the Jollyturns mobile app to see where your friends are on the mountain, and keep track of your statistics.

 

Enjoy your turns!

That's amazing! Very cool information that I haven't seen anywhere else. Such an awesome site and app you have.
