On top of Grand Mesa, relatively flat terrain and frequent severe weather conditions can create navigation problems for winter users on the 50 kms of ski trails maintained and groomed by the Grand Mesa Nordic Council. During the summer of 2017, volunteers updated maps and installed new signage on the winter trails to simplify route finding, especially for new users unfamiliar with the trail system. This effort was wholly funded by a donation from REI. The new maps and navigation system will be discussed, including a tutorial of the Avenza satellite navigation app that uses a Caltopo geo-referenced map. Thank you REI for your on-going support and for hosting!
