Ski Hill

According to responses to the r/GoogleMaps Reddit post "What is this dashed red line on Google Maps?", Maps may use the red dashed straight line to indicate a ski lift.

  1. Although there was some disagreement in the thread, the users that claimed it was a ski lift seemed informed, or had development experience, and/or (claimed) inside knowledge. Some of the naysayers may have been confused about what the OP meant by dashed red line. For example,

    The image they linked shows they misunderstood the OP's question, thinking they were referring to a different type of red line:

  2. The dashed line is located in Wilsonův les (Wilson forest-park) and a recent Google Maps review notes that there used to be a ski hill at that location:

    It's a beautiful place to visit, especially in the autumn as it's very colourful. This forest/park is a popular for locals, especially dog owners. Zigzag routes takes you through 10ha area, very enjoyable though. In 1970s there used to be even a ski field being based in one area of the hill (where theviewpointt is now) but locals decided to get rid of that, after all.
