ski area maps?

I've never been big on wall art, but I've decided I wanna start collecting. I spend hours staring at trail maps - so much that I've stapled a bunch to a wall and thought they'd look better in frames and perhaps spread out a bit. Over the Winter, I went around to a few different places while up on the hill (Breck, Keystone, A-basin) and asked for maps that weren't already folded...mentioned what I was doing. There aren't too many requests for this, obviously.

I looked around a bit on the internet, but didn't find anything. Anybody know of a source for these? They don't have to be standard size - can be bigger, but I don't wanna frame a map with a bunch of creases. Anyone?

Find the marketing person in charge of designing and the printing these and ask her to snag a copy from the printer before folding. Or maybe she will have a proof lying around. As far as historical ones, not likely.

Do you want maps of Benghazi?

There, now it's in the right forum.

I was looking for something a bit bigger than 8.5 x 11, which is all my printer's worth...even if I could find a file

I don't think they print 'em on site. I'd love to find the printer though. I'd be willing to bet one company does many resorts - if not all of 'em.

Go to the States with major ski resorts. And they have skiing associations inside the state that will give you more information, then you ever dreamed of, since they are there to promote skiing within the State.

Here's Utah's, enjoy http://www.skiutah.com/winter/index.html

Sorry not open. They've been subpoenaed by Darryl Issa to testify what they knew about Benghazi and when they knew it.
