Mapping Idea

I'm curious about using collaborative mapping techniques to make an accurate map of Burleigh Mountain. Check out this draft Google Map I made of the property. These aren't real boundaries or locations yet, but as a proof of concept it looks pretty good.

    I just found your blog. Great stuff. I love Burleigh and it is great that you are doing someting with it.
    Has any thought been given to maintaing a couple of back country ski trails and glades instead of a rope tow?

  2. Hi Cory - thanks for the comment! We currently maintain a mt biking trail and keep one of the ski trails open for sledding.

    But we are currently working on developing a forestry management plan for the mountain to include recreation, education and selective harvesting.

    I'm interested in the kind of development you talk about as that's the kind of thing that would be possible, not overly expensive, and would bring folks to the mt.

    Thanks for your ideas!
