Unique Online Map Enables Users An Interactive Experience To Virtually Explore Ski Trails
Bartlett & Pinkham Notch, NH – Wildcat Mountain and Attitash Mountain Resort were recently included among hundreds of new imagery maps released in Google’s Street View collections. The New Hampshire resorts had allowed and coordinated with Google their visit to the mountains and assisted with their collecting 360-degree imagery of the ski slopes, trails and facilities at each resort.
“We were excited to have been asked and to work with the Google Street View team in late March and early April of 2011 and to have them capture this unique imagery of Wildcat Mountain and Attitash Mountain Resort,” said Thomas Prindle, Director of Marketing for both Attitash & Wildcat Mountain. “This new virtual experience has the potential to allow millions of people to view it wherever they are in the world. With imagery of our resort available in Street View, ski and snowboard enthusiasts who may not have visited our mountains or the Mount Washington Valley can now explore the slopes from afar. Ultimately, this helps us showcase the resorts more easily and hopefully, encourage more people to want to visit and see the real thing.”
Street View is a feature available in Google Maps, Google Earth and Google Maps for Mobile that allows users to explore the world virtually at street level. The Google Street View imagery captured at Wildcat Mountain and Attitash Mountain Resort was possible utilizing Google’s specially designed camera systems that they mounted on a snowmobile that enabled a resort employee to navigate ski trails while capturing 360-degree imagery.
