Old trail maps from Keystone, ABasin, Copper, Beaver Creek, Taos

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I think I posted some of these a while ago, but I ran across them again and thought some of you might be interested. Copper is from its first year, as is Beaver Creek (I think, maybe its second). All but Beaver Creek are from early 1970s, from 71-74.

 

 

 

 

 

Taos

Cool!  I remember seeing one for Beaver Creek in an early 80's Ski or Skiing mag and it wasn't much different than what you posted.

 

Also quite interesting to see how small (relatively) Keystone was back then. And Copper was supposed to be my first ever CO ski destination back in Jan 89, but we ended up getting an incredible airfare deal to fly to Albuquerque and ended up doing two weeks at Purgatory/Telluride instead.

I'd love to know what the run is on the left side of the Taos trail map that is outside the current ski area boundary (#52 on the map).

It's called Wilderness on the key. (My scanner isn't big enough to fit the whole map, sorry)

 

Also, there are two lifts that were marked as "Future Lifts" on the map that didn't quite make it.  H was to go up Kachina Peak and slated for 1977; D was to go to the top of the Ridge in 1975, but something much shorter is there now. I know they have proposed a lift or two up Kachina; what happened to H? Who scuttled it?

Thanks for the info thats interesting. Lift H has been approved recently:

Definitely a much debated topic, lots of pros and cons.

Taos seems to be the one that changed the least.

While Keystone grew 3 times the size.........

(disclaimer: i have not skied any of these places)

I just realized I forgot to put the ABasin map up

Wow. Great map of A Basin! Any idea of the year?

 

A Basin's old lift alignment was certainly crazy. I don't know of any other Colorado ski area that felt it necessary to run two chairlifts AND a poma up the same alignment...  Did it really get that busy there back in the day?

 

I also notice that they list Beaver run, now outside boundaries, and North Pole. I hadn't realized that they put North Pole on a map prior to adding it in the mid 1990's- it was gone from their late 1970's to early 1990's maps.

I think it's 71-72, but not positive.
