Original Summit County Utah Winter Painting

This is your chance to own my original 20" x 40" gouache watercolor painting of Summit County in winter. If Park City, Deer Valley is your home hill or Summit County is a favorite destination, this is a wonderful, once-in-a-lifetime way to add a one-of-a-kind piece of art and skiing history to your home or ski cabin. As I am stepping away from painting ski maps, this is a truly unique opportunity to own a part of the history of your favorite mountain.

Medium: Gouache Watercolor

Size: 20" x 40"

Handcrafted Originals

Offered for the First, and Only, Time


For the first time ever, original artwork from the most storied artist in snowsports can be yours. For over 30 years, James Niehues’ ski resort paintings and sketches have shaped the contemporary mountain experience for everyone who loves to ski and snowboard, and those who simply revel in the beauty of the mountains.  These original paintings and sketches are from Niehues’ studio, works retained by Niehues himself over the past 30 years.


Original means one, and only one. Every meticulous brushstroke or pencil line, every snow-dotted tree and every wide open piste can be yours, transporting you to your most cherished place and memories. 

Original Paintings & Sketches

A Timeless Work of Art 


Niehues’ originals are more than a tangible piece of skiing history, they are standalone works of art fit for any collection. Most originals are painted with gouache, the same technique and paint style employed by Marc Chagall and Salvador Dali. This style allows for a richness of color and precision that is equally at home in the crisp, clean lines of an urban oasis, as it is under the firelit glow of a slopeside cabin.  Niehues’ pencil sketches are an equally important part of the development process for each mountain, capturing the design and detail as Niehues first envisioned it.


Wherever you hang a Niehues work, it transcends categorization and brings the mountains to you.

Lifetime of Memories

A Sense of Place, Brought Home


An accomplished landscape and cartographic artist, James Niehues’ renown has come through his impeccable detailing as a ski area mapmaker. His iconic maps quite literally help people navigate, while also grounding their sense of place in the mountains. A Niehues map evokes a place, a tool, a cache of memories, and an exceptional piece of art.
