    If you access a saved copy of the map with out a web connection you will not get the map. You may print out or download our data for later gps input should you be in a non-phone area.

    The map data base is here for htm and here for SS. Right now there are variations in the info. between the data platforms above and what ia listed below. Some of the info is out of date. So volunteer to update the links.

    Please remember there is always the possibility of skiing under sticks in deeper snow when skiing un-groomed trails. Know your area and change your style, slow down or go retro with high tips.

    Using an Android tablet:
    When you enlarge the ski map the ski info is transferred to maps automatically. What ever map locations you have presently showing on Maps will also show. Should you wish only ski info to show, create or go to your places/saved and select a place list with out locations. When in Maps (lower left) you will see the ski map name once you open the menu. Click on the map name to turn it off. You may also go to places/saved/maps and turn your ski locations on and off. If you are on the internet, ski locations can be accessed even when you disconnect from the internet as long as you have not cleared your memory 1/1/2019.
