Brittany’s Fourteener-Skiing Journey

In May 2011, Brittany completed her goal of skiing all the 14,000-foot peaks in Colorado. It was a 5-year long journey that she continues to enjoy sharing.

Every week rom November 2014 to May 2016, Brittany will revisted her Colorado fourteener-skiing journey, posting a report from each of the fourteeners she’s skied, one by one, in order, every Thursday, as part of a Throwback Thursday theme – Throwback Thursday 14ers (TBT 14er).

Why did Brittany doing this? In her own words, she states, “In my reflections of this project, I have realized that many of you don’t know much about it. While skiing the fourteeners was how we started and was a huge focus of our lives for several years, it is not our focus now. We’ve moved on to other things and other goals. But, skiing the fourteeneers will always remain an important part of our identity. Many of you, our wonderful fans, jumped in well after we’d started our fourteener skiing project. But, even more of you became fans AFTER we accomplished our goal. That means, there’s a whole heck of a lot of you out there who have not had the opportunity to share in our fourteener skiing adventures that define who we are today. ”
