Davenport at Neptunes tonight

Postby ulvetano » Thu Nov 08, 2012 12:26 pm

I'll be there.

Thursday, November 8 - 8 pm
Chris Davenport - From the Ring of Fire and the Lhotse Face to the Neptune Floor
Chris Davenport is arguably the most accomplished backcountry skier in the country. In the last half-decade he has skied all the 14ers in the U.S., the Matterhorn, Eiger and Monte Rosa in the Alps, the Lhotse Face on Mount Everest and countless other peaks in Antarctica, Norway and Alaska. He'll be at Neptune presenting his spring 2012 whirlwind ski of volcanoes in the Pacific Northwest. And as a special treat we're hiring Chris for the day to sell Kastle skis on the Neptune floor. It's pretty cool and we're stoked Chris agreed to do it. Imagine buying a basketball from Michael Jordan, or a football from Joe Montana? That's basically what you have the opportunity to do here at Neptune on November 8 (more details soon). Kastle skis will also be in the house offering prizes and hosting a party. Neptune Mountaineering is the only distributor of Kastle in the Front Range and we're stoked to have them and Mr. Davenport in the house.

Yes, it should be good. Nice little article about the event in the Daily Camera yesterday: Davenport at Neptune
How long after arriving at someone's house is it appropriate to ask for the WiFi password?

Errr...In the last half decade....It says it right there. :wink:

Yeah, I assume you two are right about the typo. Maybe that's his next project. He says it's something big and in North America. Although I don't know if the Alaska 14ers make good ski descents. Do they even call them 14ers up there?

It looked pretty good when Andrew McLean did the one they've got.

They don't call the peak by elevations, more by ranges. Though there is a 16er in Wrangel St Elias that would be an awesome ski descent, if you can cross the Copper River.

Hi guys,
Yeh, that's a typo. Sorry about that. I am indeed trying to finish all the 14ers in the lower 48 and have just two left... both in Cali. Tried to get them last season but Cali had a terrible snowpack. Maybe this season.
