    Dear Sir,
    I am a well known ski instructor and author of numerous books and videos on skiing and I am now producing a series of Skiing apps for smart phones.Three of my apps currently are listed at the Apple appStore – they are SkiTips1, SkiTips2 & SkiTips3. The company is RedTeam Productions. You can see what the apps are about at: http://www.redteamproductions.com
    I am currently producing another Ski Tips app which will be released in November 2011 which is intended for new skiers and boarders that gives them an insight into what skiing and boarding are about and provides them with all the relevant information to help them get started. One of the featureson the app is a photo gallery of skiing areas from all around the world.
    I would like to include your ski resort in the photo gallery. Thus may I request that you email me (or provide me with the links to) a few photos of your ski area. Preferably we would like to use photos of the ski runs, scenic winter views of the surrounding mountains & views of the base area or the town. We require photos that are at least 1200 x 900 pixels resolution, better if possible. It would be useful as well if you could let me know the GPS coordinates for your ski resort so that we can indicate that on the google map.
    I would be pleased to credit your resort on the app.
    Thank you.
    Martin Heckelman
