This ski mountaineering crossing started from the south west side of the mountain, climbing the highest summit “Mytikas” (2918m) and after a long alpine style day, ended at the mountain hut Christos Kakkalos on the Mousses Plateau (2648m). During the second day Davo , his wife Petra and Greek mountaineers explored some ski descents around the summits . The third day was the big descent from “Gavos” couloir and pine forests that guided the team at the North East part , near the Aegean sea. After the ski days on the mountain, Davo presented his own film “Skiing 7 Summits” in a fully crowded hall at Kalabaka , the city of the world famous climbing area “Meteors”. This ski project was filmed by two Greek film directors . Christos Tsoutsias , one of the best Greek climbers and ski mountaineers and Pavlos Tsiantos , a film maker with an excellent climbing background including the one and only Greek expedition to Mt. Everest in 2004. The film “ May the Gods ski with you” will be released during this summer . It will be one of the main promotions during the events of celebration the 100 years from the first ascent on the famous Greek mountain. The presence of Davo gives a special value to this film and raises the interest for ski mountaineering in Greece.
