The request for the map was meant for the OP. I just pm the op to see where the picture came from.

The OP got the photo from Mick West [or google] ( Handsome Rob's Overhead Map of Mammoth Mountain Ski Area )

It was done privately not by mammoth, made with google earth.

Perhaps no one has noticed, but the map the OP posted is extremely valuable and huge improvement over anything on Google Maps or the official Mammoth map. Why? It has all of the names the patrollers and locals use for the unofficial stuff. It's really hard to find maps like this for resorts, and I read the thread on the Mammoth forums where this guy originally posted the map. He put a lot of work into this, so I just wanted to make sure everyone here appreciates what's really there. To me, that map is invaluable.

Oh, and to give you an idea how valuable this kind of info is to some, Powdershots Photography at Snowbird sells a poster of the patrol map for Snowbird for $30. It has hundreds of area/trail/traverse/gate names that are not on the official trail map (yes, I bought it).

What makes this Mammoth one amazing is that the guy made countless revisions while taking advice from people in the forums as to what each area is called. It's basically an encyclopedia of knowledge about Mammoth, pulled from the minds of people who have been skiing/riding there for years, even decades.
