This only arrived today, but I'm really impressed with what I've seen so far - this looks to be one of the best outdoor guides I've seen for any activity. The descriptions seem to have a old level of detail, and I appreciate the route summaries breaking down the difficulty to overall, ski, fitness, and technical (alpine climbing), as well as commitment levels, (where as Burgdorfer's book has only one skill level that somehow encompasses climbing, fitness, and skiing skill levels). The highlight over the Burgdorfer book are the maps! The maps in the 100Classic are poorly printed and barely-readable -- I've tried translating maps routes in the 100Classic book to the green-trails topo maps I have on hand to limited success -- whereas these new maps are clear relief-shaded topo maps that don't make me reach for the green-trails. They are clear and are well marked. There are a number of aerial photos of routes and they are nicely marked with routes which makes for a nice bonus of the routes that have them.
