Map & Directions
Check out our new map. 2017 Trail Map. There are a few more changes and updates coming over the summer and a new map will be produced for the 2018-2019 ski season.
If you have any photos for the new brochure (Prizes!) or have suggestions, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are working towards a fully georeferenced mapping app for next year. The 2017 trail map PDF was designed for a brochure and though it can be viewed on a phone, it is not georeferenced . However, in the interim, Tom Christian modified the map file to make usable as a georeferenced PDF in the mobile app Avenza. The brochure map base will not be a perfect fit but Tom hopes that it will have value in some of our junction-heavy trails. Thanks Tom.
