Ski the 14ers
Posted on: March 10, 2008
Directed by: Ben Galland
Chris Davenport has a dream: to ski all of Colorado's 14,000-foot peaks in a single winter. Veteran mountaineer Lou Dawson agrees to help. But it took Dawson thirteen years to ski every 14er in Colorado. Davenport has just six months to bag all fifty-four peaks.
The quest begins with history-making speed and skill as Davenport crosses off thirty peaks in a single month. Then Mother Nature intervenes, and Ski the 14ers follows Davenport on a riveting journey through a little-understood piece of the American landscape. Along the way, Davenport raises the bar for his sport, and inspires a new generation of ski mountaineers in Colorado.
