3V 1980s piste map Cote Brun

Does anyone have a 1980s piste map for the 3V ? I cannot find mine.

I would be very grateful if someone could send to me a digiphoto or a
scan of this map because I cannot find mine.

With thanks

On a historical note anyone know when the first ski lift was put in
the 3V ? If I remember my aulde folklore rightly, it was Meribel which
was developed first, but sometime in the 1960s. Then Courcheval
figured that if Meribel could do it, then they could too. Val Thorens
must have been developed in the late 1960s after Stalin faked his own
death and ran away to the France to start a new life as an architect.

Can't help with the ski map, but Meribel is much oldre than that.
Wikipedia says:

History[edit]
Méribel Les Allues is a ski resort that was developed adjacent to the
traditional hamlet of Morel, with its centre situated at about 1400
metres above sea level.[1] It was founded by a Scotsman, Colonel Peter
Lindsay,[2] who was looking for a new site for winter sports away from
the ski resorts of Austria and Germany, because of the growing strength
of the Nazi regime. In 1936, he visited the town of Les Allues for the
first time. He then imagined how the town could become a ski resort.
Firstly, he decided to create a property company in order to develop
finances strong enough to build the resort. In 1938, the first lift was
placed above Les Allues. A year later, he began the construction of the
first chalets and hotels in the hamlet of Méribel. Three years later,
the war would stop the development of the resort, but when it was over,
development continued. Lindsay used specialized architects, Paul Grillo,
Grand Prix de Rome (1937), and his partner Christian Durupt, so that all
buildings would be in harmony with the Savoyard style. For this to be
realised, wood and stone must be used for the walls, with slanted slate
roofs. In 1950, the Burgin-Saulire gondola was built to link the resort
to Courchevel. Lindsay's family continue to hold a financial stake in
the resort, and his grandchildren still ski in the resort to this day.
Lindsay's ashes and those of his wife are scattered on the Burgin mountain.

Early to mid 1990s is the best I could probably do.
