To snowbird devotee(s)

post #1 of 21

Hi guys!
I`ve heard (better say read) a lot about a part of the mountain called Carbonate Area(?) that is particularly great on powder days . But there is no such a spot on the trail map.:
Do you have any ideas on what or where it is?:

yesit is on the trail map. carbonnate itself is mogul run that drops down to the gad 2 lift. its accessed through a gate. The same gate takes you to the "get serious chutes" which take you the open snowfield above the terrain park.

http://www.snowbird.com/imagelib/tra...p_snowbird.pdf trail map is here you got zoom in.

There is a poster size map consisting of an areal photo of Snowbird with the traditional names of all the runs on the mountain. It has about 10 times the number of named shots as the standard trail map. If you are a regular Snowbird skier it is a great thing to have. It is put out by Snowbird and is called the "prominent landmarks map. They cost about $20. I have been skiing there for years and I'm still exploring. I just wish it would fit in my jacket because I have to try and find stuff by memory, or come home and figure out where the heck I was.

a better map to own is the ski patrol map. I am going to try to PDF mine and post its up somewhere. Acccording to the ski patrol map their are 312 runs on frontside alone.

I would happily pay you a six-pack of the beer of your choice for that PDF.

BushwackerinPA would be better advised to exchange for the comparable Jackson Hole map residing in Bob Peters' brain.

That's SIX TIMES as much as anybody has ever bid previously.



SOLD!!!

I've got a Black and Decker drill and a Skil Saw. I'll just remove it myself. Where would you like it delivered?

I get to drink the beer first, though.

We have a wiener.

You can collect when you come up here to ski this winter.

Take the map to Kinko's and scan it on one of their flatbed scanners at a high resolution - that'll help. Even if it ends up being a huge JPG or PNG file, it'll be good - and it'll beat the pants off a digicam.

I'm not sure, but I think drinking the beer first might impair the value.

In the general population, yes.

In this particular case? Probably not.

A good share of those brain cells died in the 60's. But the good news is that I hardly EVER have those flashbacks anymore.

Where do they sell this poster? Very curious. Thanks.

I received mine as a gift from a friend, but I believe they are for sale in the ski shops at Snowbird. They have the SB logo on them and are copyrighted 2005, so they just came out last year. My friend thinks that they are a poster version of the patrol map referred to in this thread. If you go to the Bird website they have an online store with a "customer support" e-mail address. Maybe you will have some luck there if you can't wait until your next trip to Utah
