At AspenSpin we may be a little old for hero worship...but Aspen's own hometown hero Chris Davenport has truly earned and deserves all the accolades he receives in the skiing world.
If you know Chris Davenport you know he's a great guy, a family man, friendly to everybody, nice, polite, patient with the fans and a true ambassador to skiing. Not to mention... he's a ripping skier. Dav comes from a skiing family and was a ski racer in college at The University of Colorado. Later, after moving to Aspen he won the World Extreme Skiing Championships, an X Games medal, the 24 Hours of Aspen and competed in many other contests and World Class competitions. Today, he is one of the most accomplished BIG MOUNTAIN Skiers in the World.
In 2006 when Dav hiked and skied all 54 of Colorado's 14,000 foot peaks in less than one year he became a ski mountaineering legend. Since then he's bagged numerous highly technical first descents, hiked and skied peaks all over the world, including Antarctica. Chris has been in more than 30 ski movies and appears in all the ski mags. He's also a highly regarded TV commentator and an author. Perhaps his greatest work is with POW (Protect Our Winters) a non-profit organization that has mobilized the winter sports community to take action against climate change.
Davenport's athletic ability and skill along with his complete attention to detail and safety has allowed him to carve out a spectacular career as a professional skier. He creates his own adventures now. Last spring, Chris and a bunch of his friends tooled around the Great Northwest hiking and skiing all the Volcano's they could find.
It became known as:
The RING of FIRE Tour.
WEDNESDAY November 21 at 6 pm at ASPEN SPORTS (Cooper Street Mall location), Davenport will be giving a brief talk about The RING of FIRE Tour. You'll have a chance to meet & greet Chris Davenport and hear about all his BIG MOUNTAIN exploits. We'll assume there will be posters, autographs and plenty of swag from Spyder.
