Maybe not exactly the right location for this, since Silver Creek is hardly lost, but.....

Poking around on SkiMap.org, I found the following ancient (well, 33 years old) trail map from Silver Creek:

Looks like there was a lot more trails planned for Silver Creek at one time - would have more than doubled the trail count and acreage. Looking at a modern satellite pic of Silver Creek, nothing was ever built in the proposed area, so I assume it was a money thing. Was this before Snowshoe acquired Silver Creek?

Just curious if anyone knows the story here?
