I was using Google maps for its satellite view and noticed a terrain view tab ... (Via tingilinde.)
How come Steve chose one of the most popular near-backcountry skiing destinations for this example, the Catherine's/Lake Mary/Wolverine area NE of Alta? Is he trying to rub in the lack of snow there until a few days ago?
[slaps forehead] :)
hot damn! this is the coolest thing since trail maps. Glad I can finally get rid of all my trail books.
No contours, though. I need contours to estimate difficulty and avalanche danger. Whether contours would be useful depends on the accuracy of their terrain model, which may be the reason why contours are not supplied. Bottom line, USGS is still necessary.
