Online Slope Angle Measurement Tool - hillmap.com

Hi All,

I learned about a really cool website geared toward BC skier/mountaineers which uses google maps and give you a readout of slope angle at a point. Or you can build a route of lines and it gives distances, slope, elevation change with the capability of uploading your route to a gps device.

Very useful for terrain choices and trip planning in avalanche terrain. I have only looked at it a few times.
