This maze is the second in my ski resort series. I envisioned strapping skis onto my vintage Porsche and heading up the alps for a weekend trip at my ski shack. We all need dreams so I might as well shoot for the stars.
Last winter I started the series with my gondola maze. That puzzle started out as a ski lodge maze but I couldn’t get the design to work out so I settled on the gondola idea. Overall I was happy with the gondola maze and in fact it was one of my most popular mazes of all time. I didn’t want to abandon the ski shack idea so I re-approached it this year. I was able to change the perspective and make it work. I hope everyone enjoys this as much as I do and it’s making me want to strap on the skis and hit the slopes.
Below is the color test and the sketches I created while developing this maze. I struggled with the perspective of this drawing and went though a lot of sketches to get to the final product. All of my mazes start out as pencil drawings and then are filled in with marker and colored pencils.
I’ve been asked before to post my mazes without the colored pencil so that people can choose to color the maze themselves or navigate easier. Below is the link to this maze without color if that’s your preference. I’d love feedback if this is something people enjoy or not.
Don’t want to print the mazes at home? Please consider using the VistaPrint link below. VistaPrint is the vendor I use to print my mazes on heavy card-stock to hand out to friends and family. I have found that they are the highest quality and the most affordable of the print vendors. Also, I like that they allow for small batch printing which keeps the price affordable. I print them on heavy cardstock postcards and they turn out fantastic.
