New Tech: Digital Maps

untitled image 891

It's a digital world. So why are you still messing around with those unruly paper trail maps? Mountain Dynamics, developer of digital GPS trail maps, offers downloadable maps for 64 resorts this season. The digital maps are compatible with Garmin and Magellan handheld GPS receivers, and each shows chairlifts, trails, lodges, parking lots, glades and more. They also show the skier his location, and where he's already been. All that, and your paper map can't even manage to fold back up.

Sold in regional sets starting at $29.95;
