About this item

Vintage Official Michelin Ski Map of the French Alps 1948

The official Michelin map of the French Alpes ski area, from 1948, issued across France by Services de Tourisme Michelin and originally costing 100 French Francs.

Detailing the routes between and elevation of each of the ski stations from Châtel and Morzine in the north, through Megève and Val-d'Isère and to L'Alpe d'Huez and Serre Chevalier in the south, the map is covered with vintage advertising for the big name brand, Michelin Tyres.

Inside, the map folds out to a frame-able size of 43 1/4" (110cm) x 19 3/4" (50cm) and gives further information on the hotels, chalets and refuges (also shown on the map) found in the resorts, along with prices. There is also a descriptive run-down of each of the resorts themselves (see photo), which talks about the highest peak, snow fall, lift status, difficulty of pistes and ambiance.

Very good vintage condition, exceptionally rare - ideally to be framed.

A lovely piece of French history.
