The Google snowmobile captures some images from Whistler
Street View Senior Mechanical Engineer, Dan Ratner, along with a few Street View teammates came up with the idea
Google has ripped the camera rig off one of its Street View cars and slung it on a snowmobile to bring slope view to Google Maps. Now web skiers will be able to experience some of the runs the world’s best skiers will be racing down when the Winter Olympics kicks off this week. The slope-level imagery complements new aerial imagery of the Vancouver-Whistler area to give sports fans a different perspective of competition venues and courses.
