Since launching our Periodic Table of Ski Areas series, we have had numerous requests for different States, Providences and Territories to be added to the series. Today, we’re excited to announce our first ever regional print, The Periodic Table of Ski Areas: US Southwest.
While our first three periodic table prints were from individual States and Providences, our US Southwest print is comprised of ski areas from Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and Utah.
In deciding what print to create next, we were challenged on handle on how to handle certain States. States like Nevada only have 5 ski areas, which we couldn’t justify for an individual print. Utah posed a particular challenge for us with it being our third most requested State and only having 14 resorts.
The solution to this problem has resulted in our favorite print yet. The Periodic Table of Ski Areas: US Southwest adds new elements to the design that will compliment future regional designs in the near future.
Ski Areas included in the Design:
Arizona Snowbowl, Elk Ridge Ski Area, Mount Lemmon Ski Valley, Sunrise Park Resort, Angel Fire Resort, Pajarito, Red River Ski & Summer Area, Sandia Peak Ski Area, Sipapu, Ski Apache, Ski Cloudcroft, Ski Sante Fe, Taos, Diamond Peak, Elko Snobowl, Lee Canyon (Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard), Mt. Rose, Sky Tavern Ski Area, Alta, Beaver Mountain, Brian Head, Brighton, Cherry Peak, Deer Valley, Eagle Point, Nordic Valley, Park City, Powder Mountain, Snowbasin, Snowbird, Solitude, Sundance
Note: Elk Ridge did not open in 2017 due to higher than anticipated seasonal temperatures. Elk Ridge officially suspended operations indefinitely as of the 2018-2019 season due to the announced Arizona Snowbowl acquisition. We considered not including the area in the print, but opted to include it due to recent news that permitting was underway to reopen the area.
About the Series:
The Periodic Table of Ski Resorts/Areas is an “alpine-off-shoot” of one of the artist’s prior works, the Periodic Table of White Mountain 4000-Footers. This particular print series brings a data-oriented approach to different ski regions by packing incredible and extensive detail about each ski area into a beautifully designed 24” x 18” poster.
Each individual box contains information on a particular ski area’s vertical rise, base and summit elevations, average amount of snowfall, trail difficulty, number of runs, number of lifts, and available indicators for night skiing, artificial snowmaking, terrain parks and Nordic (XC) skiing.
The Periodic Table of Ski Areas: US Southwest print uses current data from the 2019-2020 season and features all 32 major and minor ski areas in Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and Utah.
The 24” x 18” poster is printed on high quality 10.3mm thick Epson Enhanced Matte Paper using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology.
