Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is famous for its steep terrain, expert trails, and the second highest continuous vertical drop in the United States at 4139' (1262m). You've probably seen videos of skiiers jumping off a cornice into Courbet's Couloir, a very steep, rock-sided trail near the summit. Those of less adventurous persuasion, like me, know Jackson Hole as the site of the annual Economic Symposium, where Federal Reserve chairs discuss topics of global economic importance. Whatever brings you to Jackson Hole, you can't help but appreciate its rugged natural beauty, even next to the far more well-known Grand Tetons. This model of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is generated from recently-released LiDAR data, so will contain geometry for trees, buildings, and lift towers. Enjoy this most realistic map of Jackson Hole on your desk or surprise any avid skiier with this unique gift.

TinyMtn models are most affordable in the "Sandstone" and "White Strong and Flexible" materials. This model is in "Sandstone," which is a glued gypsum material. When you receive the model it will be ready for display, though it may smell funny and need some time to air out. "Sandstone" models are much more brittle than "White Strong and Flexible" models, but feel more like light stone. Do not soak it in water, though you can safely seal it with Polycrylic or a similar water-based clear spray sealant. Read more about this popular material here
All TinyMtn models have hollow bottoms - this is to save on weight, and thus cost. Many larger models also have extra flanges on their undersides to increase rigidity and strength. To make the model more solid, you should feel free to carefully pour resin into the bottom cavity, or glue a properly-sized slab of wood or another material into it.
These models have been optimized for the above materials, and are not offered in other materials for strength or cost reasons. If you need one in another material, please email@example.com
and we'll do our best to fulfill your request.
