Skiing the Sno-Birds Upgraded East Access Trail at EveryTrail

 

I tracked the newly renovated feed trail that provides access to the Upper Cold River Road VAST Parking Lot. The new GPS data is seen above and has been used to update the Google Earth GPS data. Open Google Earth on your computer to view the changes. (See our Trails and Maps page for more information.) I’ve updated the EveryTrail map of the trail system too.

Map Legend as it appears in Google Earth

You may remember the Google Earth Network Link I created last season. It is still working so all you have to do is launch the Google Earth program on your computer and it will automatically update with the latest changes in the trail map I’ve made. Two trails are no longer closed which is updated on the map and I have added a legend so you can see how the trails are color coded. Just uncheck “Legend” in your Google Earth sidebar to make it disappear. read more

The Logo Colors

I have seen a couple of versions of the logo. Could someone give me some feedback about the red and blue in this version and if look the way they should on screen? Does it look the same as the sticker?

The Banner

The banner image at the top of the page was taken at sunrise giving the image warm tones. No photoshopping going on here.
