Legendary Ski Artist James Niehues

If you are a skier or snowboarder, there is a good chance James Niehues has been your mountain guide. Throughout his 30 year career he has worked at the  smallest hills and the most expansive resorts in North America.  He has left his mark in South America, Australia, Asia and Europe too.   And even if you have never shared a bottomless powder day with him, he has always been close by.
