    You could set it up as an auction thread here where people post up their bids and the top 3 or however many posters are being given away will win. Those 3 will send money to the foundation. Just a thought to do it and to keep it in the community. Good to see this happen.

    Hi! Just found the thread, and thought Id add my name to all others looking for the Upon this rock I build my church-poster. If anyone has managed to find some posters or could point out a direction it would be immensely appreciated. Has been looking for it since 2006 and donated to the foundation that tragically had to be set up in the late spring the same year, but think they ran out of posters almost immediately and maybe shipping to Sweden wasnt first priority. Feel hesitant to contact Emily Coombs personally but have over the years reached out to K2 US and Europe, the photographer (Larry Prosor) as well as Coombs Outdoors without any luck so far.Have been hoping to frame this iconic memory of Doug Coombs and his impact on the industry and to symbolize brief encounters with him in La Grave. Would happily any match any donations or so made to Coombs Outdoors for help finding a copy (in addition to paying for the poster of course).Have a nice summer everyone!Petter

    Doug Coombs Poster

    Anyone in Truckee area know Larry Prosser? He was the photographer for the Coombs poster so it might be worthwhile to reach out the him to see about getting reprints. Old Goat, TahoeJ etc? K2 people were unresponsive.
    Maybe you could book a photo shoot with Larry and then we can ambush him with the real reason of getting more of those posters.

    jk we could just contact him.
    but it just sounds more like an old school tgr caper the other way

    A friend of a friend might be holding onto a stock of these posters. When a local thrift store went out of business recently, word spread that a box of posters of Doug were found in the catacoombs(storage unit)...

    I am trying to secure them but it's a severely roundabout pursuit. If it works out, I'll try and get some for the mags.

    Im not a poster guy. But that one is inspiring.
    I would like one.

    Whos holding up a reprint? K2? Fuck them.

    Baby bear mentioned the photographer.
    Im sure k2 or someone else owns that image. They clearly seem to own the the final print with upon this rock lingo.

    But there has to be a photo right before or right after that the photographer still owns. That could be reprinted for the benefit of the Coombs foundation.

    Thx mods. Its an awesome signature.

    Wasn't the poster image a screen shot still from the "ski off" scene in Aspen Extreme?

    Schmidt and Coombs did ski stunts in said movie IIRC

    I still remember watching Doug sign one for my best friend at the Boston ski show many years back. I wanted the Pam Fletcher signature instead???? It hung on his house in Jay for years. I wonder where it is now.
    To Jeff:
    Gotta ski EXTREME!!

    I had looked him up but looks like hes an OF and doesnt have a ton online so thought Id see if there were any mag connections.
    probably should have posted directly in tahoe regional threads.
    But anyway, I think we might have a solution in the works

    FWIW, Emily is pretty much out of the picture.

    Djongo, did anything come of your pursuit?

    I got too busy with work this summer so haven't pursued it but plan on hunting the reputed stash of them here soon, before the snow flies...

    I also would love one if this ever materializes.
