This is a 1948 Pat Harty pictorial map of New England ski resorts. Depicting from northern Maine south to northern Connecticut, red dots mark ski resorts throughout Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and southern Quebec. Symbols provide information about conditions at each resort, such as slope conditions, if there is a ski school, and if there is a chair lift, tramway, or ski mobile. Pictorial illustrations of people skiing add charm to the piece. An index of the ski resorts appears on the verso.
