Artists may enter more than one design.
All art must be original and not use any copyrighted third-party materials. The winning artist is asked to grant full rights to the Mount Sopris Nordic Council to use the chosen design for promotional materials.
Heart pounding joy, long vistas of mountain ranges, surrounded by sage brush, gambel oaks, magnificent aspen groves and creature friends both big and small; skiing at Spring Gulch evokes many feelings of wonder and beauty. We know many local artists draw inspiration from time spent skiing the winding trails. We hope you will share your inspiration with us and create some awesome designs in support of the ski area.
The hats will be available for sale during the winter of '22-'23!
