Vail Symposium to host an all-female Unlimited Adventure series

For the first time, the Vail Symposium will host an all-female Unlimited Adventure series, presented in partnership with the town of Vail Public Library, GirlPowHER and The Women’s Foundation of Colorado.

“This series of great female adventurers is designed to awe the audience with terrific tales of sport, exploration and adventure, while simultaneously inspiring the young girls in the audience to get outside and find their own great adventure.” (Dale Mosier, chairman of the program committee)

In three separate programs, the series will feature presentations by:

Stephanie Davis — the first woman to free solo The Diamond on Longs Peak, the second woman to free climb El Capitan in a single day and the first woman to summit all peaks in the Fitzroy Range in Patagonia

Jessica Martin, the first person to summit and descend all of the legal-to-ride 14ers in Colorado on a mountain bike

Alana Nichols, the first woman to win gold in both the summer and winter Paralympic Games.
