In continuous operation since 1939, Winter Park Resort in Grand County, Colorado, is a popular year-round destination for skiiers of all skill levels. It boasts 167 runs over 3081 skiiable acres served by 25 lifts, and a 3060' vertical rise. The National Sports Center for the Disabled also has one of its two bases at Winter Park, helping disabled people enjoy sports for almost 50 years. This 3D printed model of Winter Park Resort includes all of the trails, the base areas, the highest point (South Twin Cone at 12060'), and parts of US Route 40. The satellite photograph was taken on December 23, 2018 by the ESA's Sentinel-2 spacecraft.

TinyMtn models are most affordable in the "Sandstone" and "White Natural Versatile Plastic" 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 "Versatile Plastic" 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
and we'll do our best to fulfill your request.
