Abstract or Description

This analysis identifies optimal areas for backcountry skiing in Maine using the following six parameters: elevation, distance to roads, average annual snowfall, aspect, slope, and population density. The most suitable areas correlated well with locations that were ski areas in the past, were once considered for ski area development, or are currently used for ski touring.
