Josh Jespersen took down Colorado’s 14ers in record time—on a splitboard

“While summiting any one of Colorado’s peaks that top out at over 14,000 feet in winter is an accomplishment in and of itself, Jespersen’s tag of Capitol was more momentous: it was the culmination of an 138-day effort to skin up and snowboard down all 54 in the state.* And to do it faster than anyone in history. In doing so, the unimposing 30-year-old contract security worker snagged the fastest known time record from big-mountain skier Chris Davenport. When Davenport completed the same journey in 2007, in 362 days, he commemorated the accomplishment with a documentary and coffee-table book. Jespersen took a photo, shared it with his 500 Instagram followers, boarded down, drove to Denver, and hopped on a plane to the Philippines for work less than 12 hours later. “
