Google Street View Snowmobile – Click above to see what it caught in the video and interactive map after the jump

Google may have grounded its Street View fleet, but that doesn't mean there isn't still plenty to see on the search engine giant's most immersive of online tools. We've recently brought you news of the Street View team taking to the Woodward Dream Cruise, the Lotus test track and Laguna Seca, to name just a few. But as the proprietors of countless unsecured networks can tell you, Google's reach extends far beyond pavement.

In the ramp-up to the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia, just a few months ago, Google strapped its cameras to snowmobiles to map out the extensive winter sport playground at Whistler. Still feeling the Olympic fever? Planning a trip to Canada's West Coast? Just plain curious? Check it out in the video after the jump.

      Hopefully they won't be stealing information again... doubt it.

      Kinda seems like a waste, does it seem like Google is just burning money on this little stunt. Who pays for them to drive the globe anyway?

        Advertisers on their website.

        The amount of free press Google gained (not sure how AB missed this...) over the stunt before/during the 2010 Olympics I'm sure exceeds the cost of getting the content. Plus, there's definitely a boost in image to the public--Google's made a reputation for being a "fun" company.

        Ad nauseum for the Pac-Man "stunt".

      Cool (cold even!). Do Aspen too.
