Today FATMAP launched the first of its kind 3D and interactive trail maps and from now on– exploring the mountain will never be the same.
Part google earth, part guidebook, and part Jim Niehues artwork, FATMAP will provide an interactive guiding experience for its users. Since its succesful launch this past year, when it just covered a select few European resorts, the startup company based in the UK has now expanded its offerings to include resorts in the US, Canada, France, Italy, Switzerland, and Austria. As of today, FATMAP boasts 25 total resorts.

Such FATMAP’s offer their users a bird’s-eye as well as “skier’s view” of the resort and beyond. Lift accessed backcountry? You’ll be able to see where that line goes in real-time with real visuals and not just lines on a 2D topographic map. Instead, FATMAP utilizes satellite imagery in addition to context driven ambassadors, locals, and resorts, all of whom can give updates and mark salient features within the terrain.
Safer, smarter, and smoother travel in and around resorts is FATMAP’s goal.
As of now the maps are free of charge but if you want premium content paired with features, you may buy a one-year subscription for $34.99.
“Our maps are not built-in isolation, we involve the entire ski community from brands to resorts to locals to everyday skiers to ensure we can produce the best maps possible.”– FATMAP Marketing Director, Adam Robinson
