TBT: History Pop Quiz

Thursday, March 9, 2017

One of the lists I would love to spend more time on is the history of our trail system.  Which trails came first?  How did they evolve and get linked together or widened?  What were they named?  And why?  Here is a quick pop quiz to see how well you have kept up with some of the name changes.  Match the current trail name to one of its former names (yes, some trails have changed names multiple times.)  Good luck.

CURRENT NAME

  1. High Traverse (the little trail that leads to South Bowl
  2. Mine Shaft
  3. Cooper's Junction
  4. Ridge
  5. Jaws
  6. Ripcord
  7. Shootout
  8. Inferno

FORMER NAME

a)  Upper Sundance

b)  Ridge Run

c)  Powerline

d)  Slalom Glade

e)  Sprung's Sprint

f)  Jaws of Death

g)  Stugger's Chute

h)  Sundance

60's

Here's a map from the early 60's.  Help me figure out which trail Spout is today.  Top of Ego Alley?

Answers to pop quiz:

  1. High Traverse (the little trail that leads to South Bowl = (c)
  2. Mine Shaft = (e)
  3. Cooper's Junction = (h)
  4. Ridge = (b)
