Searching for a better way to make affordable mountains, Chris began playing with polyurethane resins, poring resins into molds made from real rocks and then poring foam behind the plastic shell to achieve rigidity. Having done this with small boulders, Chris realized that he could likely use the same technique on a larger scale, making modular flat panels for mountain construction.

He joined forces with Rico Rock, a company that constructed concrete panels for waterfalls on swimming pools and already had one of the largest rock mold libraries in the world. The molds used were molded off of natural rock faces sculpted by the hand of God, allowing Chris to achieve maximum detail on every square inch of the mountain.
