Our last stop on our Norway trip was to the Lyngen Alps, a peninsula packed with peaks a short distance north of Tromso. We had long heard of the region, it’s one of the more well-known locations in Northern Norway for climbing and skiing.
After finishing skiing Colorado’s 14ers in 2010, I had the incredible honor to be nominated for a Sportswomen of Colorado award.
In the department of good news, we were recently nominated as National Geographic Adventurers of the Year, for our completion of the Centennial Ski Project.

Last spring, a film crew from Red Bull joined us on a few of our Centennial Ski Project peaks. They were producing an installment for the Faces of Dav series about Chris Davenport for Red Bull TV.
As far as Colorado ski mountaineering is concerned, I’ve always considered the 3rd week in May to be my favorite stretch of time.
