Blank base map

It'd be nice to have a blank base map, so that the layers can be viewed/printed without distraction.

For example, to show contours without also showing trails, etc.

Perhaps there's already a trick for this, but I couldn't find any mention of it.

    Sorry for the delay, I've been on the road for the past week and am farther behind the curve than I had expected to be.

    For paid pro-level accounts, you can use the custom MapBuilder tool to create an all-white map layer, or a white basemap with custom-colored contours on top of it.

    Without access to that feature, you can get a gray (but not white) basemap by selecting a layer without coverage in the area you're looking at - maybe one of the various visitor map layers, or the canadian layers.

    It requires a little more technical knowledge, but you can also do Add New Layer -> Add Custom Source to add a tile layer, and point it at an all-white image rather than a traditional tile source.
