Ski towns can often scare off people who are looking to check all the boxes: love, career, community, activity, etc. Not Christy Mahon. With her signature smile always gracing her face, she has beautifully woven a life that incorporates all the above while proving she doesn’t scare easily. This year she and her husband Ted finished their 15 Grand Traverse ski touring race and last season, she became the first woman to successfully climb and ski all of Colorado’s 100 highest mountains with her partners Ted and Chris Davenport. The first part of that accomplishment, skiing all of Colorado’s 14ers, had been one of Christy’s biggest goals and consequent milestones in her life.
