Elliot is the oldest member of the Grey Wolf Ski Club, and has skied every single season the past 79 years - minus the five years he served in the Air Force during World War II.
He is considered a skiing pioneer in the San Juan Mountains, and has been inducted into the Colorado Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame. He's also a founder and lifetime member of the National Ski Patrol.
Elliot entered his new century of life by skiing down the mountain at Wolf Creek Ski Area, which he helped found in the 1930s, while 150 friends and family cheered him on. He was also made an honorary member of the US Ski Team.
"I felt a little stiff," he told the Denver Post about his birthday run down the mountain. "People keep telling me, 'You won't be able to ski this year.' I don't know where they get that idea."
As for how he's managed to live as long as he has, we have a feeling that keeping active has something to do with it. Elliot says he walks a mile or two a day to stay in shape - mostly so he can continue skiing.
Between Elliot hitting the slopes and fellow centenarian Vernon Maynard, the man who went skydiving for the first time on his 100th birthday, it's clear that you're never too old to enjoy a bit of adventure.
