Series of vintage style travel illustrations inspired by great destinations.
The Aspen Skiing Company was founded in 1946 and by 1950 the city had become a well-known haven for winter sports. The area would continue to grow with the development of three additional ski areas, Buttermilk, Aspen Highlands, and Snowmass between 1958-1967.
The Winter X Games sports event has been held in Aspen at the Buttermilk ski area since 2002. Aspen natives Torin Yater-Wallace and Alex Ferreira are both freestyle skiers who compete in the Winter X Games and have very successful careers. Both Torin and Alex have represented the United States of America in Men's Ski SuperPipe at the Olympic Games.
Surf, sand, and sun await you in Hawaii. Escape to the Polynesian paradise in the Pacific where the tropical flowers bloom and sunsets are spectacular.

A visit to Maui brings the stunning Bird of Paradise in full bloom, while island hopping will also allow you see the unique Naupaka blossom and Ohia Lehua flowers.
