Local extreme adventurer to speak in Vail
VAIL – Pushing boundaries: What compels a person to run, ski, leap, bike, climb or hike off the familiar, comfortable beaten path into the realm of great adventure? For some, it is mental: to pursue a curiosity to explore the world from unique perspectives or solve mysteries; for others, it is physical: to defy their limitations and push their endurance; and for others it is emotional: they find a mission in the wilderness. In the 2006 Unlimited Adventure Series, the Vail Symposium and Vail Library will host speakers over six Thursdays who are willing to share their motivations and experiences with the community. All programs are free.Local extreme adventurer Chris Anthony will speak Thursday 5:30 p.m. at Donovan Pavilion in West Vail. Anthony will discuss his exploits while working on 16 Warren Miller films in 16 years. His journey as part of the team has taken him to some of the most daunting slopes throughout the world. Anthony is veteran of eight World Extreme Skiing Championships and the 1996 Alaskan Extreme Skiing Champion.
A long-time Vail resident, Anthony heads up specialized camps through “Chris Anthony Adventures” around the world, and serves as co-host at the “Camp of the Superstars” in Portillio, Chile. In 1991, Anthony was named Ambassador for the state of Colorado. In 1994, he trained with and served as motivational guide to Tour De France Champion Greg LeMond. He tours the Colorado school system as a motivational speaker for children, and volunteers for several charitable organizations.
