Over the Hill
This crazy picture has skiers from Aspen, Lake Tahoe and Crans. The mountains are the Swiss Alps and the bridge was taken in Basel. Everybody was assembled in this piece for an impossible skiing scenario over a bridge that would be the largest in the world if it were to be true. Basically, this bridge allows you to ski from one resort to the next, something I always wished I could do. I don’t know how anybody would get up there before coming down though.

We use the finest wood available. The wood is given a look of forged, hammered metal. It looks like an old pewtered mug one would find in an European castle. The frame will fit well with a contempory environment or a traditional home. The finish is neutral with a width of 2 5/8" and Rabbet 5/8".
