You will find everything you want for downhill, cross-country, winter-hiking, snowshoeing, sledge, lifts ... in the comprehensive and widely used Piste Maps page.
Pistes can be grouped in route relations, allowing to express the marking color, the name, etc ... Two schemes are currently in used:
- Tag:route=piste (Similar to the former, but also allows for snowshoeing and winter-hiking)
Do you need to know if you have permission to enter with your skis on ? Access (or not) with skis can be express with ski=designated or ski=yes.
Alternatively look at snowshoe=yes or snowshoe=designated.
Tag:landuse=winter_sports see also Piste Maps
Site=piste proposed alternative.
All the relevant information for a complete tagging can be found on the links above.
