I learned a little while ago that Christy Sauer Mahon of Aspen today became the first woman to ski all the Colorado fourteeners (54 14,000-foot peaks). She and her husband Ted Mahon made a descent of Capitol Peak, one of the more difficult of the bunch, but nonetheless workable with the right conditions and skills. It sounds like Ted and Christy brought it all to the table and did a good job. No details at this time, but I’d imagine we’ll get the lowdown on Ted’s website. So great job and congratulations on an inspiring accomplishment Christy!
