    Pretty much anything by James Niehues.

    The late 80s K Topo maps were the best. Even after that they had some very detailed ones including lift length/vert and a bunch of other good stuff.

    MRG and the Skiways are some of the worst.

    I know I've complained about it before, but Sugarloaf's map is so dense it's unreadable, and the Brackett Basin section is flat-out inaccurate.

    While I really like the Sugarbush trail map of the past few years, I was really partial to the 1994/1995 map. It was the only one to best represent Mount Ellen, including the "slog" over to Northway/Northstar, and the general orientation of the trails. It was only in use for one year as the two areas (then North and South) were shown on the same panel, but not in a contiguous print. Regardless, its a James Niehues, and you can't go wrong with any of his work. His book is great, too.

    See here for that image:
