This was my kind appempt to allow you to save some face. Unless you are a Downhiller & you are on the WC & you happen to be in a local such as Sochi or Chamonix...... winning single runs will be less than 90 seconds in general.
Rec skiers rarely ski beyond the next lip w/o stopping. [emphasis added]
Either get some credentials or some results.....
You have no concept of what you are spouting off on & should not be posting misconceptions for those using EpicSki as a source of information for the dedicated skier.
Wow. People can read exactly what you said, up above. Namely, "the longest WC runs are lesser than 90 seconds in nature. Most rec skiers stop 10 times on the way down a 700 ft mtn."
As for length of performance, what I said for the HIGH INTENSITY end of the sport -- using as examples racing and big mountain -- was "45 seconds to sometimes 3 or so minutes of sustained effort for intense, world-class performances, that require technique and coordination be maintained (i.e. you cannot completely redline) and for recreational skiers often even 10 or more minutes of sustained effort, repeated throughout the day, when at bigger mountains." You can yell and wave your hands, but what you were trying to claim from a position of authority, as you pulled your "pro card," just happened to be off by a pretty big margin as regards racing, way way off as regards the way many people ski who are rec skiers, and it is telling that you also want to mispresent my very clear words.
Just for the record, you were also way off as to lift-served skiing being somehow deficient as regards the calories people consume on ski vacations, as well. Because it is not "as anaerobic as you can get," you can ski the whole day, unlike doing say, HIT intervals in the weight room. Basically, because people ski lift-served for more of the day than they, say, run or XC ski, it can be roughly comparable in terms of total calories burned.
So, other than your being way way offbase in terms of the way recreational skiers ski, offbase by a minute or so as to the length of the longest WC runs, and offbase as to skiing being about as anaerobic as it gets, you also blew the point you were trying to make about skiing being deficient relative to "frosty beverages..and cheeseburgers."
So, I don't think I need to be lectured by you about credentials, thank you very much.
