New Jackson Hole map from Powder Magazine's website showing the future Teton lift. The whole base area was also repainted.

James Niehues is finishing up a long-overdue new map base for Deer Valley. Here's the partially-finished base with lifts drawn in, much closer to scale than the old version

The official Breckenridge trail map isn't out yet but I imagine that this, created by Photoshopping last year's map, is what lower Peak 8 will look like with the upgraded Colorado SuperChair.

Niehues is also working on the Big Sky map. From what I have seen on Facebook, it looks very nice.

Came out nice, more similar to the old one than I was expecting but a much more accurate way to show Lady Morgan. They spelled "Perseverance" wrong in two different ways - wonder if this has gone to print yet

Here's the new Sun Valley map, showing 2 fewer lifts than last year.

They'll need another new one in a few years if this Solitude interconnect happens.

This is a very valid concern! Niehues' work is far and away the best in the industry. Some of these computer generated maps are just horrendous, and lets not even go into how bad Breckenridge's map is. I wonder if they will commission a new large map of the combined PCMR and Canyons, or keep the maps separate? If so, I surely hope they call on Niehues to make it. I think it would be nice if they had 3 maps - the 2 separate ones, and the 1 combined map. That way you could take the map relevant to the area you were skiing that day.

James Niehues posted on his Facebook in January that he is retiring although some projects will be too good to pass up.

Cool. I'm surprised they didn't cut an egress route from the bottom of the new chair 3, possibly connecting with the crossover from Ski Acres. Also, it's been a (really) long time since I skied there, but I don't remember the old 3 liftline being called 'Hyak Face'?

You're right. I remember it as Grayson's. Hyak isn't even the official name of the area anymore

Neither is Ski Acres or Snoqualmie, but that's what we all know them by, right? :rolleyes: Grayson's does sound familiar.

New Big Sky maps:
http://bigskyresort....ullTrailMap.pdf

Things I noticed on first glance:
Cabin is listed as a double although it is actually a triple.
The lodge at the top of Andesite which has been closed since the Spanish Peaks bankruptcy is reopening as Everett's 8,800
It looks like they totally eliminated the Pony Express base facilities

I also thought Lone Tree was a quad and it is listed as triple. I know Lone Peak and Lone Moose are triples.

I have been excitedly waiting to see this new map. Lone Tree is positively a quad. I rode it two winters ago multiple times with the other three members of my family in the same chair. Also, I didn't know there were any facilities at the bottom of Pony Express. I guess I never skied down there and rode that lift. I do see a parking lot on the map at the bottom of it.

It is good to hear that beautiful lodge is reopening. That was a location that could really use an on-mountain restaurant.

There haven't been any facilities at the bottom of pony in 3-4 years and Lone Pine is a quad. The lodge at the top of Andesite will be a nice addition, It was a shame that it took so long to sort it all out.

I saw that the Spanish Peaks lifts were on there, does that mean if you buy a ticket to Big Sky, you get access to the Spanish Peaks lifts too?
