I sat down for an interview with Big Life magazine that covered all sorts of topics.
Christy Mahon’s ski descent of the east face of the terrifically steep and technical Capitol Peak in the Elk Range made the 34-year-old Aspen local the first woman to ski all 54 of Colorado’s 14,000-foot peaks.
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.
Longtime Aspen resident Christy Mahon is a highly respected figure in ski circles, both locally and outside Colorado. A highlight on her long list of alpine accomplishments: becoming the first woman to ski all 54 of Colorado’s 14,000-foot peaks, a feat she accomplished in 2010.
