12.07.2009 – Boulder, CO – Spyder Active Sports, the world’s leading skiwear and mountain-based apparel brand, recently signed big-mountain skier and mountaineer Chris Davenport to their athlete team.

Davenport is the only man who can claim to have skied all 54 of Colorado’s 14,000 foot peaks, in under a year.

Additionally, Davenport will head up the development of a backcountry and big-mountain apparel collection based upon his technical needs and personal experiences in some of the harshest mountain environments on the planet.

Spyder will capitalize on Davenport’s function-based insight and use the brand’s three decades of experience with innovative manufacturing practices and performance materials to create technical performance outerwear for expeditions in the toughest weather conditions. Davenport is currently in Antarctica developing styles slated for the Spyder collection. The apparel will be available for consumer purchase in the fall of 2011.
