Mountain Dynamics Releases SnowRanger™ "California" Set

Second set of ski resort trail maps for handheld Garmin® GPS receivers

Tucson Arizona, December 7th 2005: Mountain Dynamics Inc. announces the immediate availability of its second set of SnowRanger ski resort maps for Garmin GPSes. This "California" set contains detailed trail maps for 13 top resorts: Alpine Meadows, Bear Mountain, Bear Valley, Heavenly, Homewood, Kirkwood, Mammoth, Northstar at Tahoe, Sierra Summit, Sierra at Tahoe, Snow Summit, Squaw Valley USA, and Sugar Bowl.

Each digital map shows the resort's chairlifts, trails, lodges, terrain parks, roads and parking, tree cover and contours, and more, and can be used with any Garmin GPS that supports downloadable maps. Most importantly the GPS shows skiers or snowboarders exactly where they are on the map, where they have been, and where they are heading. With ski lift tickets reaching $75 or more this season, SnowRanger helps the skier or snowboarder get the most out of each day, and can be a valuable aid to safety.

"The Lake Tahoe region is a Mecca for both local and destination skiers," said Marcus Needham, Mountain Dynamics' President and CEO. "This set brings easy to use GPS mapping technology to Tahoe and the rest of California's top resorts."

California joins the "Colorado/New Mexico" set that was released in November, and future sets planned for 2005/06 will cover Utah, the northern Rockies, and the Pacific Northwest. Each set is available for download or on CD-ROM for $29.95.
