    trail maps

    So what do you do with em??? I always take a fresh, crisp, new trail map when leaving a resort (if its the first time there) then frame it and hang it in the basement. I must have 30 or so right now hanging with some more to be framed....everyone who comes down there loves it....they look around, find a mountain they skiied and the rest of the night is spent talking skiing (with a few beers of course!!!)

    I always grab a bunch of them so I have a non ripped / wrinkled one to keep as a souvenier. Right now I have the stack sitting in a drawer. Trail maps are the best souveier you can get when visiting a ski area IMO and the best part is that they're free.
    I'm ready for what's next

    I had two pretty good sized boxes absolutely filled with trail maps. Stuff from middle school and high school. I would guess i probably had 75% or so of all n.e. ski areas collected. Really cool stuff. didnt think about them for years until someone brought up a thread like this a couple of years ago. I went back to my parents house looking for them and found out my mother threw them all out. Man i wish i held onto them. It would be like a baseball card collection. Everytime someone brings up trail maps, i cringe thinking about what i lost.

    If it's an area I haven't been to before, I save the map and draw lines on all the runs I skied. With a or some such at the spot, if I had a good crash.

    Got a few of them tacked-up in my cube at work. Got a bunch at home. Got some in a binder with notations like Mapnut has.

    Framing and hanging up trail maps is a great idea! I may steal it.
    What did you have for breakfast?...A great big bowl of Angry O's and a tall glass of Hater-ade?
