Is it possible to download ski trail/piste data for major European and other resorts? I'm looking for polyline data showing the major runs in a resort - the kind of data you'd see on a piste map.

Openstreetmap seems to have quite extensive chairlift data, but not the actual runs down.

Switzerland's geo.admin.ch portal has some ski routes

The digital ski routes are based on the Snowshoe and Ski Tour Maps 1:50,000 and the National Map 1:50,000. They contain specific information for snow sports in the alpine and pre-alpine area of ​​Switzerland. Special conditions for snowshoe and ski route data: The ski and snowshoe routes are to be regarded as general indications of direction.

I just can't figure out how to download. Maybe you can reach out to them on twitter.

  • The metadata page says to contact geodata@swisstopo.ch, Federal Office of Topography, Wabern, 3084, CH.
