With 12 days left, skier Chris Davenport has two 14ers to go

I got this note Wedneday from world-class skier Chris Davenport who is trying to ski all Colorado's 54 14,000-foot peaks in one 12-month period. He now has only two left. We'll have more on this soon...
This is just a quick update to let you know I have skied peaks 50 and 51 of my project yesterday and today. Yesterday we skied Little Bear Peak via the Southwest Face to West Ridge and today we skied the fantastic Crestone Needle via the steep and hairy South Couloir. Snow conditions were firm and slippery on Little Bear and soft on the Needle. I'm exhausted at a hotel in Westcliff and will drive home to Aspen tomorrow to write my trip reports and post photos. A big storm is headed our way and I have eleven more days to complete my final three peaks, shavano, Longs, and Blanca (which is totally wind hammered and dry)Stay Tuned for some eye candy!Chris

My hat's off to Chris and I just know he will make his goal. Very impressive what he has accomplished.
