Thunderforest Outdoors in Google Earth

This is a KML network link for displaying the Outdoors map style of the Thunderforest platform as an overlay in Google Earth. It has fine contour lines and highlights hiking paths (with names). It also shows ski slopes, which makes it a nice replacement for the broken OpenPisteMap layer.

For some information on how it works, please see the main page and the FAQ.

To get started, simply download thunderforest-outdoors-overlay-for-google-earth.kmz (please log in first, see here why) and open it in Google Earth. Or checkout all 3 Thunderforest map overlays on this site.
