(um for the first time ever so can I 

487,800 so far)

 

 



Now up to 53 days, 1,063,345 feet.  I wish it didn't take me so long to "get going" this year.  It was day 28 before the ski "switch" was fully in the ON position....  I have "goals" of 70 days, 1.5 million feet, but ...well, anything can happen...

36 as of today.  I missed just about all of December, though.

28ish goal is 40, was without a car all of jan and feb so had to bum rides. Pretty sure I would be around 60 if I had the car.

Since the Docs allowed me back on skis January 3rd I've gotten 38 days.  Finally back in the BC but still nursing the body back

Unfortunately not nearly enough. Due to plowing,four trips up north have not happened,three of my Wed night Patrol nights I have spent in my truck,and the kicker,this morning I drove an hour(at 4:30) to a friends house to ski at Loon for the day and My wife called that one of her clients went into labor!!!!!Had to turn around because it is hard to find child care that early. Oh well, better luck in the next couple of weeks.

And yet it gives your body extra rest and more energy to pile the days on now. get some!

post #70 of 163

Always try to get at least my age in days. Did it today with 84. Missed out the last two years breaking 100. Still have a litle left in me to match last year at 92

post #71 of 163

Today was 38.  Goal is 50.  Deer Valley this weekend, for first time this year.

post #72 of 163

57 as of today.

Lost 5 weeks / 25 ski days in Jan / Feb due to a bad ankle - slip & fall in the driveway.

 

Expecting about 35 more days till end of season.

Should endup with a bit over 90.   

 

post #73 of 163

32 (30 as of 3/9)

 

Gathering in CO will boost the numbers.

Day 61 in powder at Kicking Horse yesterday, Day 62 in powder at Revy today. Now I'm at Big White until closing on April 10. Should end up with between 90 and 100.

About 130 ...but that includes Australia in mid 2010, Tahoe in January and Feb 2011, Tahoe in March/April 2011, and Australia in mid 2011. 

 

Where's the nearest "Skiers Anonymous" branchbeercheer.gif

Just curious, anyone who breaches say 60 days a year, is it highly likely they work in some capacity at a ski mountain, or are many of you some sort of ski-travelers/world-travelers...just the logistics of getting to 60 days has me curious

post #78 of 163

I've never made it (52 is my all-time high), though I have a shot this year. For me, there are three elements:

  1. Has to be a long season. We started mid-November this year, and closing day is May 1 if snow holds up (looks good so far).
  2. Need good weather/good luck (eg, sunny weekends). Here in the Alps, you don't really ski much if it's seriously cloudy.
  3. Christmas makes or breaks it. Now that my kids are in school, I take the full break along with them. If the skiing's good, I get ten or twelve days at Christmas alone.

 

42 and counting, four-day weekend starts tomorrow too...

I'm a desk jockey, BTW...

around Tahoe, a percentage of the daily skiers have independent means, some from an early age (trust-funders), and by keeping a low overhead can make the income support their skiing. an older population has finagled a semi-retirement, and again, a low overhead. not so many billionaire types here really, mostly diehards and ski bums who do whatever it takes to ski every day.

Many of us live in ski areas.  Before I moved (and while I still had a full time job) I could hit 40 days, but a lot of housework didn't get done (still doesn't....)

If I still lived close I could hit 60 days pretty easily thanks to night skiing but since it 76 miles each way for me I don't get out much after work and have to log most of my days on the weekends.

I'm up to 63. Hoping to hit 70 before the season ends.

I work at a ski area, but only on weekends. I would hit 60 or more each year regardless; Our season runs from early November through the last weekend in April. After that, we cna hike for turns year round, or go to Whistler or Hood. Some seasons I've logged 25 days in the "off season", last year I got burned out and quit going up more than once a week in mid July.

4 - Record low, didn't even use my free passes.

 

Divorce sucks...been playing Mr. Mom all winter.

post #85 of 163

50 and counting, aiming for 65 with some spring backcountry days.

post #86 of 163

40 now...2 weeks to a month ahead of previous years paces. Plan is still for 60ish days. We have so much snow here in the Tahoe region, I will be surprised if I don't get it. Hell, we haven't even been to Mammoth yet!

Throw a 400 mile drive in one way and I am pretty proud of my 25 days so far and I have another 10 scheduled, so I could hit 40 if the weather cooperates. All I really care about, is I have seen a huge improvement in my skilz this season, my 6th on snow. Bummer is, I rarely get the days in surfing anymore, as I am at Mammoth every other weekend for 3 to 4 days.

For those of you who are referencing 60-80+ days so far (depending on the date of the post)... how hard do you ski?  Do you never hit the gym for anaerobic training???

 

 

I live 15 minutes from my local hill, which has night skiing.  So every single day since Dec 10th I could have skied, but considering my gym sessions, I need to let my legs recover.  Also, in general a day of recovery here or there is helpful.

 

I do squat jumps, plyometrics, general weight training and take it to the max.  I'd have no knee cartilage left if I skied that much.

 

 

 

I'm honestly curious if those people with that many days don't work out during season, or if they do work out, but just don't care about recovery???

 

 

 

Anyway, now I'm up to 45ish.  I did just discover "Ski Tracks" on my iPhone, and for those of you who always ski with your coat, and never forget to turn it on, that would be a lovely way to record days skied and vertical skied (although it seems that the total "lift vertical" is much more accurate than the "skied vertical")

post #89 of 163

I'm @ 56 days. Ski into shape.Ott+Wedeln.gifProblem is I never quite get there. It's the quality of a turn not the

quantity to me. If i can ski like this fellow at his ummm experience I'll be happy.

post #90 of 163

If I had to guess, about 30.
