Colorado Backcountry Skiing

Do you like backcountry skiing? Than you should know Lou Dawson.
Lou, 53 is member of the Colorado Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame since last October.

He was the first to have skied down all 54 of Colorado's fourteeners, according to Vail Daily News.

Dawson started with the descent of Castle Peak in 1978 and finished in 1991 with Kit Carson Peak in the Sangre de Cristo range.

Backcountry skier Lou Dawson wrote some interesting books about his passion.
If you are a mountaineer and backcountry skier, I recommend taking a look at them.
