    So, with P not handing out the trail maps this year.. (my kids froth over them and mark them up each day to show where they went.. ) I'm trying to find a high-res copy of the trail maps.
    Have saved the grooming maps in jpeg off the website, but the quality is not great.
    Any ideas help would be appreciated....

    Agree. Very hard to use phone with gloves on. Easier to whip out a paper map.

    I don't see how you can get Covid from a paper map.

    A lot of that is people picking it up, looking at it and putting it back they are trying to mitigate.

    Agree plus it can survive on surfaces including paper and cardboard.

    Paper
    Examples: mail, newspaper
    The length of time varies. Some strains of coronavirus live for only a few minutes on paper, while others live for up to 5 days

    Cardboard
    Examples: shipping boxes
    24 hours

    Anyway, if you want a trail map, there are still some on the reception counter at the Sundeck

    I'd be more worried about someone wiping their nose on their glove, then the safety bar and then you touching it....

    With the general public picking up the maps from the counter, could have solved that by wrapping each map in plastic.

    With getting covid from map to face, that's just general personal safety precaution that applies to everything else, ie, don't touch face/nose after touching any article.

    Phone usage while skiing sucks in general I try to minimise it. Map in phone is the worst idea. Gloves can't be used with the screen and tiny screen is no substitute for big and wide paper view.

    Just study the map and test the kids before leaving in the morning. They cant get that lost.

    Perisher’s trail signage is just between appalling and rubbish.

    But if you know the map, do you really care about the signage?

    The map is a poor 2 dimensional distortion of a 3 dimensional hill.
    There are runs I have been looking for for years but can't wrap my head around the 3d reality being so different to the 2d map.
    I love the map and also prefer having the paper one (i usually save several as keepsakes from every year I go) but geeze I wish there were a lot more signs that showed exactly where runs are.
