Congregating on the office couch, Snowboard Life’s editorial staff checkedout The Skier’s Book of Trail Maps and enjoyed short mind trips back to fresh turns in morning snow.Despite the somewhat discriminatory title, the contents speak just as clearly to snowboarders. Full-pagereplicas of trail maps from 80 North American resorts expose the wealth of terrain that exists on thecontinent, and also provides other useful bits of information like vertical drop, average snowfall, lift-ticketprices, and season length.

Scanning the pages, we came across mountains we’d visited and weremomentarily afflicted with starry-eyed reminiscence. The Skier’s Book of Trail Maps not only evokedmemories of good days gone by, but planted ideas in our heads for future trips as well. I, for one, havealready added a few mountains to my “must ride” list. Now, to come up with the money. For a copy of TheSkier’s Book of Trail Maps, stop by your local shop or bookstore, or call 1-800-888-4741 to order byphone.-Luke Downer
