Dear fellow mappers
During this winter, I have taken lonvias excellent route map 
framework  and extended it to render skiing slopes, sledding pistes
and snowshoe trails. If you want to have a look go to
http://slopemap.osmd.ch, and look for your favourite winter sports area.
The map displays ways and relations tagged with piste:type, and for
downhill skiing requires the tag piste:difficulty.
A short remark for the tagging: pistes are usually mapped as ways. I
have seen quite a few examples where the name of the piste was mapped as
the name tag, or the number as ref. To avoid ambiguity, use the
piste:ref tag for the number/letter and the piste:name tag for the name.
Have a nice weekend
