VIDEO: Faces of Dav - The Adventurer

Red Bull Media House dropped the first episode of their latest series yesterday, The Faces of Dav. The series tells the story of two-time extreme world skiing champion Chris Davenport.

From becoming the first person to ski all 54 of Colorado's peaks over 14,000 feet in one year to joining the ownership team at Kastle Ski, it's easy to see that Davenport has found the formula for success in the rapidly evolving world of skiing. 

In 2007 Davenport traveled to Bella Coola, British Columbia with Doug Coombs to film a segment for the movie Steep. Shortly after Coombs passed away in a tragic ski accident. Seven years later, Davenport returns to the same zone in Bella Coola for six days of winter camping at ‘Mad Dog Col’ with big mountain skier Griffin Post and photographer Adam Clark, with the hopes of skiing the same lines. Their plans are quickly compromised, when a massive storm with high winds and low visibility leaves them tent bound for four straight days.

We'll keep you up-to-date on the latest episodes all season.
