Adventure Into the Unknown with Chris Davenport

Mar. 12th 2015

At the heart of any adventurer is the courage to take a leap into the unknown, to explore far and wide, and to set out to achieve what no man or woman has done before. Three such adventurers call themselves the Centennial Skiers, and they fit this bill quite perfectly.


Throughout their home of Colorado resides the 100 highest summits in the state known as the Centennial Peaks; these three Aspen ski mountaineers, Chris Davenport, Christy Mahon, and Ted Mahon, have embarked on an outstanding goal to ski them all.

Here Chris talks about three of his most memorable summits and descents in the Centennial Peaks Project – Thunder Pyramid, Teakettle Mountain, and Red Mountain – which alone add up to over 41,000 vertical feet. With just 5 peaks left, Chris shows no signs of stopping.
