    Skidmap: Facebook account needed to view. WTF!

    So case you didn't know, Skidmap is (was?) a great resource for trails info.

    I was using it a couple of weeks ago to look up Park City trails but when I tried to view the site tonight, I can't get past a registration page which REQUIRES a Facebook log-in.

    Is the site broken or is this a new policy?

    As I can't get on the site, I can't obtain contact info so if the developer is an MTBR regular or if someone knows what's going on, I'd appreciate a heads-up

    (NOTE: I do not have, and never will have, a Facebook account)

    I have a FB account but I refuse to use sites that require logging in with FB. That means no Spotify, unfortunately

    I'm guessing you were already logged into facebook at the time.

    I don't have a FB account......but I agree with the rest of this statement. I could give 2 sh*ts about "Likes" and such.

    Then again, I rarely even bother to visit company websites that force you to view FB to find their product info.

    Did you log into the mobile site (from a phone or tablet) or the desktop site?
    I've since discovered I can access the site on my phone and tablet but not my PC...

    OK, panic over. I just got an e-mail from Todd telling me this is an error and he's changing the site so it doesn't REQUIRE a f/b account!!
