Last year I had the opportunity to be a part of an amazing mentorship program that the Aspen Middle School conducts annually with their 6th-grade students. I was approached by an impressive 11-year old girl who asked if I would be willing to participate in the program as her mentor for ski mountaineering.
We’ll leave it to the Wall Street Journal to ask that question, in a story that ran in Tuesday’s paper about Christy, 14ers, her training, and more. It was a cool story, and considering how often the press misses the mark on topics outside of their expertise, I think they did a really good job. (more…)
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.

Well at least that's my strategy when Christy and I line up at the start for the Steamboat Marathon this Sunday. I don't have a choice. After a great spring almost entirely dedicated to skiing, and with the approaching calendar stacked with some pretty tough running races-- the Bighorn 50 is in two weeks and Hardrock is a few weeks later just to name two-- I need to get some...
As part of getting all caught up after our trip, we've been chipping away at the Himalayan-like pile of mail that awaited us at home. That means flipping through a glossy ski or climbing magazine faster than Christy can cover a fluffy fashion mag while waiting to check out at the supermarket. So we almost missed the ad.
