Watch The Faces of Dav – Episode 1 – The Adventurer
Legendary big mountain skier Chris Davenport never seizes to impress. In the Faces of Dav series, Davenport works with RedBull to tell his story.
In the season premiere, Davenport heads to Bella Coola – an area he last visited with Doug Coombs while filming Steep. Now, Davenport joins Adam Clark and Griffin Post on an epic Bella Coola adventure.
After four days in a tent, a relentless storm broke and it was time to go human powered adventure skiing in one stunning alpine playground.

In 2007 Davenport traveled to Bella Coola, BC with Doug Coombs to film a segment for the movie Steep. Shortly after Coombs passed away in a tragic ski accident. Seven years later, Davenport returns to the same zone in Bella Coola for six days of winter camping at ‘Mad Dog Col’ with big mountain skier Griffin Post and photographer Adam Clark, with the hopes of skiing the same lines. Their plans are quickly compromised, when a massive storm with high winds and low visibility leaves them tent bound for four straight days.
