Awhile back, I posted a couple of items about SnowRanger Ski Resort Maps. I had wanted to test out their software and report back on it, but alas, I'm not going to Tahoe or Coolorado this winter. I did however get in a brief trip this weekend to the Ski and Snowboard Park at Mt. Shasta (picture at left), and used my trusty Garmin GPSMap 60CS to record the track.
I was really curious to see how well this would work. I tethered my GPSr and stuck it in the outside mesh pocket of my CamelBak. The results are shown on an aerial photo generated using TopoFusion, at right.
It picked up a few stray track points, but generally it worked pretty well. You can probably pick out the chairlift in the picture! Shasta is a small ski park, and I don't think I would need a GPS for navigation even for a large park, but it was still a fun exercise.
