ASPEN -- 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.
The Aspen area, after all, is home to four guys who have accomplished the feat -- Lou Dawson, Chris Davenport, Jordan White and Ted Mahon, Christy's husband. As near as she can tell from mountaineering blogs, she is only the seventh person overall to have skied the big peaks.
