It’s nice to have the largest ski map worldwide at hand with OpenstreetMap. Now with a few mapping efforts, some really useful services could arise from this data. Not only inputting more pistes on the map (there is still plenty to map !) but also in organizing them by ski resorts with site=piste relations.
Ski resorts pistes, and pistes length
Now on Opensnowmap, you get some usefull statistics on a particular ski resort.
Some resorts seems to be rather well mapped:
While for others …
There is no ski pistes, just two buildings there.
There is plenty of thing that are not yet mapped in OpenStreetMap. However, I hope these stats will give a good incentive to completely map ski resorts, why not by the operator ?
These stats are obtained by checking the members of site=piste relations.
A few controls have been recently added to complete the piste list view onOpensnowmap.
To obtain the list view, use one of these buttons to
- listall pistes in the viewport
- select a piste by clicking on the map
- search a piste by name
On the list view, you can:
- List all pistes of a particular ski resort
- View the elevation profile of a piste
- Get more info about the resort or piste, including a link to OSM browser
