Congratulations. This is a big deal. To ski them you have to climb them all during a time when most of us stick to the easier peaks. Plus some of those ski descents cause vertigo just viewing the trip reports!

That's an amazing feat. Your Pyramid TR made me nervous just reading it!

Glad you were successful (abnd safe) for that incredible goal.

Here's a little taste of the finishing party!

Thanks everyone for all of your comments! I really appreciate it. I have spent a lot of time and energy in getting this project done.

People have asked me this a lot and to be honest, I'm not sure. Some people suggest that, now that it's May, I should start riding bikes. But, I'm going to keep skiing, especially while the skiing is still good. And, it's still fantastic. I'll probably enjoy a year or so of having not too much of a goal- just doing what I want, when I want. I've wanted to spend some time in the Tetons and maybe even the Sierras and Cascades for quite some time now, but I haven't taken the time to travel much because I didn't want to "miss a good fourteener window". I also have a constant "wish list" that I am always adding to, and checking things off. It's in a constant state of flux which is nice because you always have something you want to ski next. Still, a constantly changing wish list is not the same as a pre-set list or goal. There is something so tangible and satisfying about counting down, not just checking off. I can't say right now that I'll return to a pre-set list or even what that list will be. But, I have some ideas. Either way, I'll be out there skiing- and enjoying every moment I get in the big mountains.

I'm not sure if she was planning on putting the TR up here, but it seemed appropriate to put Pikes Peak here. http://14erskiers.com/blog/2011/05/tr-pikes-peak-14-may-2011-my-final-fourteener/
