So, another situation where maps tend to be useful: on piste when skiing or snowboarding. But paper maps tend to get wet, crumbled, fly away when it’s windy or get torn when folded back in a rush. Look at these: high quality maps that are printed on two sides of a microfibre cloth. So, you can use the map even with ski gloves on & you can also clean your goggles, camera lense -or the kitchen sink for that matter- with it. Useful stuff. I found the maps through a French skiing area website, but they actually exist for various European resorts and they are called Wipeouts. Awesome name, I must say!
