Alta & Snowbird Ski Areas in Little Cottonwood Canyon, Utah

Painted in 1992

If you’ve skied in Utah, you’re probably familiar with the legendary Little Cottonwood Canyon, or LCC as locals call it. This canyon has some of the best ski terrain in the US all concentrated into one area. The two ski resorts in Little Cottonwood, Alta, and Snowbird, each have their own distinct personality, and hard-core aficionados can argue the merits of each for hours. But, when James Niehues painted this view of both resorts, he set aside the banter to instead highlight some of the most legendary mountains in North America.

The legendary 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.
