Google’s Street View snowmobile takes your voyeurism to the Olympic slopes

There’s something deliciously futuristic about the fact that Microsoft and Google are patrolling our roads, documenting their every nook and cranny with large multidirectional cameras strapped to SUVs. But what about the unpaved wilderness? Well, Google’s after that too now, with its new Street View snowmobile it’s unveiled just in time for the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Sure, it’s a bit of a gimmick, but also it’s surprisingly thrilling to chase down the various slopes in use for the Olympics, and Google Earth even has most everything mapped out in 3D for your aerial viewing pleasure. Check out a video of the snowmobile in action after the break, or hit up that source link to “hit the slopes.” If something gets in your way, turn.
