Chris Davenport is making his way to Crested Butte this weekend for a book signing of his new book which came out this fall, 50 Classic Ski Descents of North America. Dav’s latest movie, Australis will be showing as well.
Though I haven’t had my hands on Dav’s book as of yet (I’ll be buying one this weekend!), it’s destined to be a classic, as the title portrays.

A great review of Dav’s book is provided by Lou Dawson, who says it’s “not a book, it is an icon”.
Davenport has also been promoting his movie, Australis: An Arctic Ski Odyssey. I have this very movie sitting on my shelf right by my television. But, I’ve refused to watch it until I have seen it on the big screen. I’ve been anticipating this movie now for over a year, ever since I saw the first trailer. Here’s a peek.
A detailed review of Australis is done by Steve Romeo on Teton AT.
Australis is showing at the Mountaineer Square ballrooms at 7 pm on Friday. Wendy Fisher will give a brief intro. Davenport will also be available for a book signing at 4pm on Saturday at Thin Air, also located in Mountaineer Square. Both events are FREE!
I’ll be there. You should be there too 🙂
