Women who Inspire-Kit Deslauriers

Standard

On October 18th (that’s today!), 2006, Kit Deslauriers became the first person to complete ski descents from the top of Seven Summits. Her quest began in 2004 when she became the first American woman to ski from the summit of Mt. McKinley. For the next two years, Deslauriers went on a full-on climbing and skiing assault of the world’s highest peaks, which culminated today, at 11am, when she pushed off from the summit of the world’s highest peak, Mount Everest (29,029 feet).
