    Honest question: haven't resorts also gotten a lot more liberal over the years with what they put on the map, increasing the difficulty range they need to grade?

    Also, as the parent of skiing toddlers, I've gained a much greater appreciation of good trail markings. It may not matter much at home--I usually know what we're getting into--but when we take them elsewhere, a little help in the trail markings goes a long way in reducing meltdowns. I'm sure the same applies to skiers of any age who are at that stage on the learning curve.

    Couldn't have said it better myself. Would be wild if you went to a ski area outdoors and you had to figure out a little bit of the outdoors.

    C'mon, 80% of the skiers at a resort like BS just want to cruise a few runs, do lunch, cruise a few more, take some pics and then hit the hot tub. It's been that way since the 70's all over the west. If the resort wants to make the maps and a way down a bit clearer for that crowd, it's a little silly, but what's the difference?

    ^^^ 100% this. I don't need a map or a symbol, for those that do? Enjoy.

    The double blue designation has been on the JH map for decades.

    i dont understand the backcountry ratings either. you look at the line you can either ski it or not. that's all the rating you need.

    Reflecting on this, itís actually quite smart for Big Sky to constantly announce terrain map changes, lift upgrades, etc no matter how insignificant or lame. They get constant publicity and itís all part of the marketing game to increase ticket sales.

    Most people in this thread use their smartphones to check snowfall totals, weather forecasts, and avy reports. How is looking at a map on your phone any different?

    And speaking about maps, I seem to remember you getting lost in the mountain village trying to find my condo when you first moved to MTÖ.

    Even more lost after we smoked the bong and went to Scissor Bills!

    To your point, Big Sky base configuration isnít very straightforward for sure. Much agreed.

    Superior got roasted by the smooth draw of those cubes that evening. Other out of town maggots crashing at my place were involved. No trail maps were harmed.

    We got pretty fucking baked that evening.
    Harry's a helluva host.

    That pic reminds me of some really good times in Big Sky.

    The tube now resides in the waxroom and is the place to earn your stripes.
    C'mon down.

    Right now my winter is looking pretty open for a change. PT today went well, I am able to do 10 push up type thingies in a row although a sudden and quick reach to a high shelf would be difficult. 1 day at a time.

    Sounds like good progress, Cap'n!
