A Look At Copper Mountain's New Trail Map Showing Two New Lifts

James Niehues, skiing most famous artist, has been working on a new trail map for Copper Mountain.  A new map is needed since Copper will be installing two new lifts this summer. 

James has this to say on his Facebook account about his latest project, “In 1995 I produced two trail map images for Copper. The Main view and the Back View, or Copper Bowl. New images are being painted for the 2018/19 season. I am really excited about this opportunity to portray this Mountain 23 years later. I gave them two sets of thumbnail sketches as options to show their Mountain. Here is the selected set. Keep in mind that the only purpose of a thumbnail is to select an overall perspective. Many fine features of the slopes will change as I get into it and study the aerials. The Village and I-70 will fall into place during the comprehensive sketch, the next step.”

James went on to say, “The Horizon and resolution lift area are complete. In the second photo you can see the aerials I am working from,different close-ups for different parts of the mountain. I also had other photos from different perspectives to look into the Spaulding Bowl. I took these aerials when I first painted Copper Mountain in 1995 so I check current googleEarth images for new cuts, tree removal, or new lift alignment. I will get new aerials of the village and base facilities.”
