Christy Mahon first women to ski all 14ers

The Aspen Times reports that Christy Mahon said "It was only fitting for an 'Aspen girl' to become the first woman to climb and ski all of Colorado's 54 peaks over 14,000 feet in elevation."

Christy's climbs and ski descents are chronicled on the Stuck in the Rockies website.

She started with Box Creek Cirque on May 7, 2004 and finished her quest on May 16, 2010 with a descent of Capitol Peak's east face.

Beside being the first woman to climb Colorado's 14ers, Christy is also in a select group of only seven people reported to have skied the high peaks. Four of whom are from Aspen - Lou Dawson, Chris Davenport, Jordan White, and her husband Ted Mahon.

Congratulations, Christy!
