Any fan of mountains must surely appreciate the alpine perfection of the Teton
Range in Wyoming, or at least has seen Ansel Adams' famous photograph of the
Grand Tetons from Snake River Overlook.
This rugged subrange of the Rock Mountains rises 7000' above Jackson Hole
(the name of the flat valley), and is home to the town of Jackson and the
famous Jackson Hole Mountain (ski) Resort.
Three of the entries in "Fifty Classic Climbs of North America" by Roper
and Steck are on Grand Teton. It was a no-brainer to bring it to TinyMtn.
This 3d printed map covers the Cathedral Group of the Teton Range and extends from Snowdrift
Lake and Avalanche Canyon along
the Southern border to Cascade Canyon to the North, and from Bradley Lake and the
many falls on the Eastern slope to South Fork and Icefloe Lake to the West.
This group contains many of the highest peaks of Grand Teton National Park
including Grand Teton, a rugged and steep 13,775' (NAVD88), and nearby Mt. Owen
and Teewinot Mtn.
South from the highest summits are Middle Teton and Disappointment Peak, and
farther are South Teton and Nez Perce.
Other minor features, still identifiable on even the smallest print, are East
Prong, Valhalla Canyon, Teepe Pillar, Teton Glacier, Glacier Gulch, Amphitheater
Lake and Delta Lake, Garnet Canyon, Cloudveil Dome, Shadow Peak, and Lake Taminah.
As you run your fingers across this detailed model, you can either imagine you are
a 100-mile-tall giant, or simply that you are there in person, on the trail,
learning the mountain.
Model scale is 1:65100
Model covers an area approximately 4 by 4 miles
Altitudes covered: 6907' to 13775'
There is never any vertical exaggeration in TinyMtn models.

This TinyMtn model is in Shapeways' "Ceramic" material, which consists of 3D-printed clay with binder, which is then hand-glazed and fired. When you receive the model it will be ready for display. "Ceramic" models are understandably brittle, even more than either the "Sandstone" or "White Strong and Flexible" models. You can get it wet, leave it outside, and you don't need to seal it. Read more about this beautiful material here.
TinyMtn models have been optimized for specific materials, and are not offered in other materials for strength or cost reasons. If you need one in another material, please click the links above or contact us and we'll try to accommodate your request.
