43 runs in one day
57.7 vertical feet in one day
52.6 horizontal miles in one day
53.1 mph sustained speed for the day
66.5 mph maximum speed for the day.
Here is some more stats from the phone app:
4h26m58s Lift Time (hours, minutes, seconds)
2h05m06s Slope Time
6m21s Rest Time (a guy has to purge every once in a while) and think thru ski gear too.
.......... Here's the difference between every ski area (that I know of) and Big Sky............no lift lines[???].
I'm wondering if the Lone Peak tram was running that day. If it was running:
1) I would be using it for quality over quantity, and most people here know I'm a numbers junkie and have tracked vertical of every day since I started skiing in 1976. See post #104 in this thread.
2) The Lone Peak tram almost always has LONG lift lines, 35 minutes commonly when conditions are good.
3) The skiing from Lone Peak is technical with fall consequences, so you're a rock star if you're skiing that at high speed and under control.
Therefore I think it would be very difficult to ski that kind of vertical with even a few tram runs included.
So presume SuperG is a local who found something else interesting to do on a day when Big Sky's best terrain was not available. IMHO Big Sky is not an easy mountain to rack up big vertical. The ratio of length to vertical of most of the lower mountain lifts is quite high. That's going to limit your vertical even with high speed lifts vs. a place like Sun Valley where the groomers and fast lifts have consistent steeper fall lines.
