Not that Aspen and the Alps are one and the same: the arid climate of the Rockies creates powdery snow, and the skiing culture is also lighter, more relaxed. In addition, Aspen’s history as a mining area provided an extra layer of meaning to a body of work that focuses on the way people alter their environments. “The native inhabitants, the Ute people, had a respectful use of the landscape; the miners later on introduced a very utilitarian notion of landscape,” says Niedermayr. “The subsequent decline of mining in the ‘30s paved the way for Aspen to become one of the most modern ski resorts in the world.”
