Jim Niehues – The Man Behind The Maps

Meet the man behind the maps. Jim Niehues is the world’s foremost painter of ski resort trail maps, having hand-painted 200 maps for resorts all over the world. In this video Jim tells us about how he uses aerial photography and artistic license to accurately portray terrain to skiers and snowboarders embarking onto a new hill.

It was a real pleasure working with Jim to create this video for Ski Utah. Produced by Lexi Dowdall. Shot and edited by Tim Roberts.
