I got in 151 last year. Was shooting to break that by a bunch this season until the crash. I was just starting my 51st day on December 27.

Except for 1996, when I had another season-ending injury on my third day out, I've skied more than 100 days every year since 1970.

Funny, when I was in grade and high school, I probably skied 30-40 days a season. When I was in college, maybe only four or five.

How many ski days do you get on your boots before you get new ones.?

Over the last 45 seasons it's never been more than about 50 and never less than about 10.  However, if you count the times when my wife and I transported, financed and outfitted our four children we had years where we were responsible for more than 50 skier visitswink.gif

 

Kneale, very sorry about your injury.  You've been blessed with so many more ski days than most of us it would take several lifetimes for us to catch up. sbiting_100-1081.gif

This topic always decays in to heated discussion over what counts for a "season" as some people here ski in both hemispheres, or just in one past the equinox. 

 

Ski season June 22 - June 21st, or first chair to last chair at your home mountain?

 

Regardless, never kept an official tally, but probably somewhere over a hundred but under 120 per season through high school.  Can I include the summer freestyle camp with water skiing and water ramps.  I did use downhill skis on the ramp.th_dunno-1[1].gif

When I worked at Mt Hood Meadows in 1986-87 I had to ski down to open the Hood River Meadows chair. I also free skied almost every day I had off, so around 140 that year. Most years non employee are about 20-25.

Why would anyone define a season by someone's else business decision? Skiing is skiing.

Agreed!

 

But....Lots of people do lots of things in the "off season" however most choose to define it.  Otherwise we can say that there is no defined season.   For example, does the statement "I go ski South America during our off season" make sense?  Calender year doesn't make sense,

 

Basing it on the Equinox makes the most sense to me, but others prefer to choose the first skiable snow in the fall as day one if a season then go til the next fall's first skiable new snow..

the season start the first day u ski and end the last day you skied the following year i.e. 20011-2012. So if you ski in south america that would be the last day of your season. Although folks in the U.S. refer to skiing in South America as off-season.

Season of 1963-4, when I was on the college ski team I skied at least 3 days a week, so that would have been something over 100 days.  Last year was 50.

post #12 of 26

Yeah, in the 1963-64 ski season I was alive.....

Got a long history, eh, mtcyclist?

post #13 of 26

I ski 12 months each year...so there is no off season. (BTW CRG, I think you mean solstice, not equinox.) I usually go with first day of snow after the solstice...although in 2010, we skied fresh snow on solstice. I marked that one down as last year, and waited for the next new snow in August to start next season.

post #14 of 26

Unfortunatley I live in wisconsin and am in high school, so I ski only about 10ish days a year.

post #15 of 26

26 days and oh how I long for so many more. This year I'm at 10 so far. 

post #16 of 26

Highest was 75 in the season of 03-04.  Unfortunately I had a job for a few years after that, couldn't hit that number again, although got two 73's.  Hoping to do 75 this year again.  

post #17 of 26

Lost count between 160 and 180 one year. I'm behind my recent average already this year at only 39. Doubt I'll break 80.

In 1963-64 I wasn't even "there", errr "here" err, as you say "alive"...
I'd say about 30 back in the '80s when I was attending the university. But I wasn't logging my skiing days then so I really don't know for sure.

I think it was 81'-82', I skied about 140 days in the regular season & then another 60 on a spring pass at Alpine Meadows for close to 200 days finishing on the 4th of July.

82'-83' was another big year & close to the same. 

 

Last season was around 170 including Backcountry tours.  Finished on July 18th

Damm! Some of you guys get some days. last season was exceptional and I skied about 120-140, roughly. Counting the days missed is easier....fingers and toes stuff!

post #21 of 26

I don't get as many ski days as a lot of you bums, but I do get my fair share.  I never really counted but I think somewhere around 35 days is my best.  but I have averaged around 25 days a year for the last 40 years and I haven't missed a season since I started skiing in the season of 71/72.

 

Perhaps that would be a better question.  How many consecutive ski seasons do you have?  This is my 40th! 

 

Maybe I will start a new thread about that.

One season, i think it was 01/02, i skied 172 days. Haven't gotten close to that since.

post #23 of 26

My most lift served days was 113 (last season). However, if I include post season hikes, I skied 129 days in '07-08. That was the year I rode 27 first chairs (it was a season of many powder days). cool.gificon14.gif

 

This season I've only skied 36 so far, so unless the post season is ridiculously long, I won't pass 100 for the first time since '05-'06.

post #24 of 26

Is it conditions or some problem with your work schedule, VA?  Can't imagine you and I ever being tied for number of days!!!

post #25 of 26

Most about 90+.  Averaged 70-75 for about 15 years when teaching and coaching.  In the last 25 years 20-35 days except for 3 missed seasons due to a catastrophic muscle illness (quadriplegic).  This year 4 hours!  Too warm in the midwest and now a bad knee....not looking good for this season.  Too bad since I have offers to ski with friends and family in Calgary, Montana, and Tahoe.  Next year.

My son is back in town, and though I've got him up skiing 11 times, I have to spend more time in town to keep the peace with his mother.
