Davenport Fourteener Book on the Hot Track

Post by WildSnow.com blogger | August 29, 2007      

I got some galleys the other day and am headed up to Aspen today to see the real thing, which is being created by Art Burrows of Ajax Design (yep, Art the famous tele skier from days of yor). The new pub is amazing, basically a coffee table book with enough 14er ski porn to keep you amped for ten seasons. Chris emailed me and said they’re shooting for a Christmas release. That would indeed be the “hot track,” but knowing Chris Davenport I wouldn’t expect anything less! I’d stick a teaser up here but probably get in trouble. Aw shucks, if they beat me with a broken ski pole so be it, check out this sequence from one of Davenport’s amazing descents. Take my word for it, the book is stuffed with dozens more.

    Dare I say that’s totally SICK?! I can see the book adorning the coffee table with snow falling outside.

    I predict this book will set the world on fire for ski mountaineering. It’s an amazing production that honors the sport like nothing I’ve ever seen…

    So if we flip through the pages at 29.97 pages per second, will it be illegal without a permit? Creating the dreaded ‘motion picture’.:)

    Looking forward to seeing the book.

    Good point Derek! Just flip ’em at half speed and you’ll be okay, otherwise it would indeed be illegal!
