"Ski The 14ers tells the story of Chris Davenport's epic adventure through stunning photography and first hand trip reports of Colorado's most spectacular mountains and ranges. Between January 22, 2006 and January 19, 2007, Aspen's Chris Davenport completed a remarkable journey. He skied all 54 of Colorado's 14,000-foot peaks within one year. To successfully ski the 14ers one must have a combination of big mountain skills including accurate avalanche forecasting ability, careful route selection and inexhaustible tenacity. To accomplish the goal, Davenport and his companions faced every condition from water ice to powder, from bluebird days to subzero temperatures and intense winds. He climbed over 200,000 vertical feet during his ascents and often the very difficult routes had minimal snow cover. The true scope of this accomplishment is known by only a handful of experienced alpinists and skiers. Colorado ski alpinist Lou Dawson was the first to climb and ski all 54 peaks, which took him 13 years to accomplish. Others have attempted to ski all the 14ers and have come close. This book is an extraordinary photo expose of all the 14ers in winter. The trip reports gives the reader a window to this rare accomplishment."
