Spyder athlete Chris Davenport has successfully skied the 100 highest summits in Colorado, finishing off Jagged Peak this past Wednesday. The journey demanded hiking, climbing, and skiing some 350,000 vertical feet—comparable to 28 round trips from Everest Base Camp to the summit. Davenport dreamed up the ‘Centennial’ project while road tripping with friend and professional skier Ted Mahon. “We were fit and strong, and we wanted to push the bar higher,” says Davenport. “By the end of the trip, we were set on doing it.”
Davenport, the World Extreme Skiing Champion and mountaineering legend, is widely known for being the only man to ski all 14,000’ peaks in Colorado in one year (2006-2007). “It was probably the best year I’ve ever had,” Davenport says. “It reignited my passion for the mountains.” Read more on the Centennial Project.
