I'm not sure if anyone else is familiar with this website. They have hundreds of trail maps for ski hills all over the world, and for many of our local ski hills they have many maps going way back in time.

It's fascinating to look at some of the maps from the 1960s-1970s, all the way to today, to see how our favourite mountains have evolved.

Very cool I love the way our local hills have evolved. The Edelwiss map from 1991 is interesting as it has future runs marked that never happened.

Nice find Jake. Very interesting that Saint-Sauveur had a chairlift that went from the base of the Fleche d'Argent 68 and crossed over to near the top of the Atomic Express.

I am also interested by Vorlage, that in the earlier days, before the North Slope double chairlift, you had to take the twin t-bars , and then transfer to a second t-bar near the top that went along Snow Dance to the actual summit. Very interesting. I knew of this fact but never had seen a trail map to properly visualize it.

Incidentally, development preferred building the snow tubing park over the future ski trails. This happened a few years after Saint-Sauveur acquired Edelweiss. They installed a triple chairlift (I believe that originated from Ski Morin Heights, but not sure) to access the tubing hill. Years later, the triple remains but is no longer used, all the chairs have been removed from the line, and a magic carpet lift was installed for accessing the tubing. I can see the carpet being more user-friendly for non-skiers so it was a good move.

I would love to see some more trails opened up at Edelweiss though, although I don't really see any options for them to be located.
