A good design is relevant for a few years, maybe even a decade. But a well-made map lasts for generations.

Imagine owning A One-Of-A-Kind Piece of Skiing Heritage

In celebration of over 30 years painting the world's most beautiful mountains and ski resorts, I have opened my private collection of original paintings and sketches for sale. Stay tuned for additional releases of original art.

Brighton

Brighton is one of the oldest resorts in North America. A Utah local favorite, it is known for its great snow, extensive night skiing, and backcountry access. This collection includes a never before seen sketch of Brighton from 1999.

Beaver Mountain

One of the oldest continually-operating ski areas, Beaver Mountain continues to be family-owned and family-operated.

Deer Valley

I've been fortunate to sketch and paint Deer Valley in four different configurations over the years. Each time is a different challenge to capture the resort with a fresh look.

Eagle Point

Eagle Point is a great resort located in southern Utah, surrounded by the Fishlake National Forest.

Park City

Park City is a success story of the American West. The mining town that transformed into a year-round outdoor destination. I've been privileged to paint and sketch several iterations of Park City over the years. These are some favorites!

Powder Mountain

Developed from a family farm over several generations, Powder Mountain offers a huge area of inbound skiing and several snowcat accessed areas. I sketched and painted Powder Mountain from several views in 2011.

Salt Lake Olympics

The 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City featured venues around the region. This collection includes paintings and sketches from the downhill and slalom racecourses, as well as from the Olympic Training Center. Hopefully the Games will come to Salt Lake City again!

Snowbasin

Home to three events in the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, I've painted and sketched Snowbasin several times over the years. This gallery includes the current map and some Olympics views.

Snowbird

With its steep terrain across three valleys, I've painted and sketched Snowbird from several angles over the years.

Solitude

Nestled in Big Cottonwood Canyon, Solitude opened in 1957 and features both great beginner and intermediate terrain, as well as great steeps. I most recently sketched and painted Solitude in 2015.

Limited Edition Canvas Art Prints


I have released a limited edition run of top quality, canvas art prints for sale. Only 25 signed-and-numbered prints will be available for each mountain. The collection includes select mountains from Utah and Colorado.

NFT

I am releasing a few NFTs as part of the Utah collection. For those new to NFTs (like all of us, frankly), it means buyers own a unique, digital representation of the original ski maps.
