TILT Building, Room 221

From Alaska to Mexico, Mongolia to Argentina, Russia to Chile...Jordan White, Caleb Wray, and Anton Sponar have skied in quite a few places. On Wednesday, November 30th, they'll stop by Fort Collins to present a slideshow about their recent summit of Denali as well as the rest of their adventures, skiing all over the world.

At age 23, Colorado State University Alumnus Jordan White became the youngest person to summit all 54 Colorado 14ers and ski back down them. Caleb Wray is a published adventure photographer, intensely passionate about the outdoors. Anton Sponar was a distinguished alpine racer at the University of Colorado who has taught skiing and works as a mountain guide both here in Colorado as well as in Chile.

I plan on attending. :D Let's hope the snow holds off until after I'm home!

One more bump up for tonight. Ought to be a really good presentation, even if you aren't a skier. FREE. I hope a few of you will show up!

Nice show with awesome photos. It pretty much firmed up my belief that I need a new extra wide angle lens for my SLR.
