On Friday, May 3rd, Carl Dowdy clicked into his skis at the top of Crestone Needle and skied down it with a giant smile on his face, becoming the 10th (known) person to ski all of Colorado’s fourteeners. Joining Carl in his celebratory ski were Matt Kamper, Marc Barella, Mike Bean, Eric Sangueza and Rob Miller. Marc Barella and Matt Kamper are closing in on finishing their 14er ski descents as well as they each have 4 and 5 peaks remaining, respectively. (Update 5/5- Marc now only has 2 peaks to become the 2nd snowboarder to finish). And of course our friends Pam Rice and Chris Webster remain close as well, though they seem to enjoy it too much to actually finish.
We at 14erskiers extend a huge congratulations to Carl, and we wish the the best of luck to Marc and Matt in completing their fourteener skiing endeavors.
