The ski patrol at Mt. Abrams, a family-owned resort in Greenwood ME, is lacking an accurate map of the ski area. Recently, in an effort to attract more adventurous skiers and riders, Mt. Abrams has opened all of its wooded in-bound terrain, increasing the potential for accidents and placing extra strain on the patrol force. The goal of this project is to use ArcGIS to create a detailed boundary-to-boundary map of the mountain's features including trails, glades, chairlifts, t-bars, buildings, terrain parks, and toboggan houses. These features were traced in the field using a Trimble GPS unit and uploaded to georeferenced Maine GIS Catalog images of the mountain. In addition to these physical settings, the map includes possible evacuation routes and high risk areas. This information was collected from current ski patrol members. The finished product will be presented to the Mt. Abrams ski patrol.
