Winter is upon us and it was time to dust off the Northwest Snow Trails mapset and get it ready for winter fun!

The previous version of this mapset was compiled using an old-style background map that caused display issues in recent updates of Garmin MapSource.  This has been corrected and, while it means a less-detailed background map, it also means a smaller download size and proper display of the data in BaseCamp as well as MapSource.

Please note that there are a number of updates to this release that didnít make it into the release notes below.  These were primarily those submissions made to Northwest Trails that were also marked as winter-friendly.  In those cases, the contribution was noted in the Northwest Trails release notes but not in the Northwest Snow Trails notes.  Iíll make sure to break out the snow-related aspects of all future releases in order to better track changes to this mapset.

Lastly, I have made some additional strides in automating the process of updating this mapset, but as with any change there is a good chance of initial kinks.  Please let me know if you see any errors in the data, most notably trails that should/shouldnít be included in the data.
